Ice to Meet You

Flavoured water has never been my thing, but lets be honest, how great do these ice cubes look? My new favourite thing as of late is cucumber beverages. It’s just so cool and refreshing and SO damn tasty! So I decided to whip up a batch of cucumber ice cubes to add to my drinks and, as these things usually happen, I got a little carried away. Summer is hot and it’s important to keep hydrated kids. I know, I know. Water is boring after your 27th cup of the day, so why not spice it up a bit?There is no real recipe for these bad boys, pretty much fill your ice cube trays with different flavour combinations, top up with water and freeze. I made 4 even batches of Cucumber, Strawberry/blueberry, Lemon & Lime and Lemon and Mint. We kicked back on Sunday afternoon, relaxing on our balcony with some nice big glasses of flavoured sparkling water. They were a huge hit! I’m going to make a few more batches to keep in the freezer for the next hot day (or even better, the next time we have guests! They look so great in a glass!)

Have you made flavoured ice before? What flavours did you come up with? I’m thinking these combinations for my next batch:
  • Lemon & honey
  • Celery and Fennel
  • Basil and Cucumber
  • Orange and Lime
  • Lemon and Raspberry
  • Kiwi
  • Watermelon
  • Coffee
