Transform your beverages with Edible Flower Ice Cubes! They instantly add fun to any drink with colorful petals and all of the fancy vibes.
There is nothing cuter than a drink fancied up with a colorful garnish like flower-filled ice cubes. I mean, come on! They instantly make a drink look 10x better, and they can even make it taste better too.
I first discovered edible flowers around the time when I was whipping up my fair share of watermelon steaks, and I sprinkled a few petals on each time to amp up the cuteness.
But, I soon realized that 1) I don’t make nearly enough fancy food to warrant the amount of edible flowers I had, and 2) these things go bad really quickly.
So, I figured I’d do with them what I do with all of my soon-to-go-bad foods… freeze ‘em! But not just that. Freeze ‘em into fancy-like ice cubes!
Edible flower ice cubes are an elegant and colorful way to spruce up your drinks, perfect for special occasions or hot days.
Ingredients in edible flower ice cubes
To make flower ice cubes, all you need is water, an ice cube tray, and some edible flowers. You can usually find edible flowers at farmer’s markets or natural food stores. The more colorful, the prettier your ice cubes will turn out!
How to make ice cubes with flowers
The flower ice cubes of your dreams are ready faster than you can say “edible flower ice cubes!” Just add water and flowers to your cube tray and freeze!
- Assemble the cubes: First, place the flowers face down in each ice cube well. Fill ¾ full with water. Push the flowers in so they’re as covered with water as possible.
- Freeze the cubes: Freeze until solid. Fill the rest of the way up with water, and freeze again.
Spruce things up a bit
To get crystal clear ice cubes with as little bubbles as possible, you can use distilled water! Boil it first and then let it cool for even clearer cubes. Let those flowers shine through!
For a bit of flavor, add a dash of elderflower syrup to each ice cube. It adds a touch of sweetness that gets into your drink as it melts!
