This past weekend we showered by best friend & Aprons & Stilettos partner, Rochelle. It was such a beautiful day of great company, delicious food, and these adorable floral ice cubes which graced our mimosa bar.
- Edible flowers (organic rose, geranium, lavender, nasturtium, cornflower, violets, snapdragons)*
- Distilled water
- Large ice cube trays / molds
Boil the distilled water and let cool (this limits impurities and air bubbles, which make ice cloudy). If using ice trays, fill 1/4 of tray with cooled water, add edible flower and freeze. Once frozen, fill tray 1/2 way and freeze. Repeat until tray is filled to the top. If using round ice cube molds, no need to work in layers. Simply add flower, fill to the top and freeze.
These flower ice cubes make the perfect addition to any cocktail or ice bucket.
*Edible flowers can be found at your local farmers market, Whole Foods, Sprouts or online.
Great idea! Perfect for summer
