Ingredients For Christmas Ice Cubes
Pair together your favorite fruit, mint leaves, and distilled water.
How To Make Cocktail Ice Cubes
Cut your fruit of choice into small pieces along with the mint leaves. Place the fruit and leaves into the sections of two ice cube trays.
Fill them with distilled water and freeze overnight or at least 4 hours. Keep in mind big cubes take longer to freeze.
To ensure you avoid cloudy ice I recommend that you boil the distilled water, this makes them even clearer. Just boil the water and then let it cool to room temperature before adding to the ice cube tray.
Have fun with this recipe by picking out different shaped or sized ice cube trays or even using edible flowers! Square silicone ice cube trays are great for large cubes of ice, allowing the fruit, leaves, or flowers to be seen better.
How To Serve Decorative Ice Cubes
Don’t all good bartenders serve decorative ice at home to bring their parties to the next level? Try serving this ice at Christmas, at your cocktail bar, or for tiki drinks at pool parties.
When serving at parties place the decorative ice on top of crushed ice to preserve the life of the cocktail ice. As your guests craft their own cocktails they can choose which ice they prefer in their drinks!
