Here are 4 cool ides to take your ice cubes from boring to beautiful. Best of all, these ideas can be mimicked with just about any edible item!
Brighten up your summer cocktails with beautiful flower ice cubes. Use edible flowers, such as orchids, nasturtiums, pansies, and snapdragons and layer flowers in large ice trays. For the most clear ice cubes, boil your water first, let it cool and then pour into trays.
Sweeten up your favorite juice or cocktail with smoothie ice cubes! Just take your favorite fruit(s) and liquify them in a blender. Pour the fruit into cube trays and freeze. A perfect way to get your daily fruit intake and beautify your beverage.
Ice Coffee Cubes
Keep your coffee flavorful with coffee ice cubes. Start by brewing coffee at home and placing it in the fridge to chill. Remove half of the batch and pour it into ice cube trays. Leave the second half in the fridge and once the coffee cubes are frozen, simply combine the two, and you have yourself a never ending caffeine buzz!
