Quick Trick for Measuring Ice
Measuring ice for our Piña Colada recipe can be tricky; You place the frozen cubes in your measuring cup, because of the gaps between the ice, you can’t be sure that 2 cup read is accurate. For a no-fail method, first, add 1 cup cold water to a liquid measuring cup. Then add the ice cubes one at a time. Once the waterline reaches 2 cups, you’ll know there’s exactly 1 cup of ice; drain the water and add the ice to the blender.
