Elegant Ice

Add a classy flair to your cocktail hour setup with DIT edible flower and herbal ice cubes. Use mint, rosemary, lavender or basil with lemonade drinks, or nasturtiums with a sweet cocktail for a delicate finish. Whatever you choose to freeze, be sure it’s edible, free of any pesticides and has been cleaned before making its way into the ice cube tray and the beverage.

Another idea is to create a rose version to decorate wine chillers as a centerpiece. The combinations are endless and the visual effect is well worth the prep work.

How to make these elegant ice cubes; Boil filtered water, this step creates a smooth and glossy finish. Cool water to room temperature, fill a large silicone ice cube tray ½ way, place flowers/herbs and freeze. Add the remaining ½ of the water into the cube and freeze. The finished product will be photo-ready and will wow the guests.
