Decorative & flavored ice cubes

It's not that hard, I know, yet still I don't often go to the trouble of making my own decorative and flavored ice cubes. Over the weekend I did, and the results are so pretty I wanted to share them with you!

My favorite is the mint. The leaves look pretty and retain their shape and color when frozen.

I also tried some rosemary, but it ended up looking a little spiderlike to me!

The blackberries froze well, although some of them (in background) colored the whole cube. Do you like to gussy up your ice cubes for summertime iced tea drinking? If so, what do you use?

Hi Angela,

Beautiful!

If you have a moment, please check out my recipe for lavender heart shaped flavored ice cubes. I think you would enjoy making these also.

Thanks for sharing!

What a great idea. I'll have to try this with the blackberries I picked today.

I have not gussied up my ice cubes in a very long time. When I was a kid I loved to make ice cubes with KoolAid, not that could be good in a tea? Just wondering?
