Looking for a pretty cool way to dress up sometime drinks? Try our technique for taking plain ice cubes from everyday to extraordinary simply by studding them with fresh fruits, vegetables, herbs, and flowers. These striking blocks bring a pop of color and a hint of flavor to cocktails, punch, lemonade, or even plain water. It's a simple make-ahead process; using boiled, filtered water is key to crystal clear cubes. All else is up to your tastes. Mix and match by pairing ingredients like cucumber and mint to chill down a mojito, herbal thyme ice for lemonade, or purple pepper flowers for a spicy gin and tonic. Whether you're having a few friends over for a casual patio supper or hosting a more formal affair, these ice cubes add a graceful touch to any festive setting.
