For Valentine’s Day, Mother’s Day, spring and summer entertaining, parties, showers and Valentine’s Day: Make your drinks stand out with flower ice cubes.

It couldn’t be easier: Just place edible blossoms in an ice cube tray, fill and freeze.

To get the flowers perfectly centered in the cube, wait until the ice is halfway frozen and then place them in the center (we use a tweezers).

You can also use blueberries, raspberries, mint leaves, etc. Use the floral ice cubes in cocktails or soft drinks—even ice water.
 
 
PICK THE RIGHT FLOWERS

Not all flowers are edible; many will upset your stomach (or worse). But there are quite a few to choose from. Here’s a list of edible flowers.

Flowers have been eaten since before Egyptian times. Here’s more about edible flowers.

Want to grow your own? Sure, but be sure to grow the flowers with no chemical pesticides. More about growing edible flowers.
