Flavored ice cubes can jazz up everything from a cocktail to iced tea or coffee. The concept is simple: make ice cubes with flavorful liquids and add-ins to chill down your libations. As these creative ice cubes melt, another layer of flavor gets added to your drink. Genius! Not only will they make your drinks taste better, but they look gorgeous too.

Try fresh herbs, berries and edible flowers (small flowers look great, or tear off a few petals). Place your add-ins in an ice cube tray.

  • Tarragon
  • Basil
  • Mint
  • Blueberries
  • Raspberries
  • Strawberry slices
  • Edible flowers or petals

Step 2: Add Liquid

It can be as simple as water, or try juices – google image 

Top off the ice cube tray with some liquid to cover. It can be as simple as water, or try juices like cranberry, grapefruit, orange, lemon and lime, coconut milk (we found that full-fat worked better than “lite”), and summer favorites like lemonade and limeade. Just don’t try anything alcoholic, as it won’t freeze.

  • Water
  • Cranberry juice
  • Grapefruit juice
  • Orange juice
  • Coconut milk
  • Lemon juice
  • Lime juice
  • Lemonade/limeade
  • Blue pea flower tea
  • Tea
  • Coffee…

Step 3: Freeze & Serve

Freeze until solid. That’s it, you’re done. You can pop the cubes out of the tray and store them in a sealable bag until you’re ready to use them, so you can use the tray for a batch of, you know, just plain ice.
