Ice Cube Bliss

Chapter 23 Tutorial: Ice Cube Bliss
Add an elegant touch to sparkling water or any bridal party beverage with these flavored ice cubes. Combine a small amount of lemon juice, several lemon slices, and water and then freeze in ice cube trays. You can also freeze fresh blueberries, mint leaves, or raspberries in ice cubes.
IMG_0959Here's what you'll need to get started:
ice cube tray
lemons or
berries or
mint leaves
Plus water (of course!) and a bottle of sparkling water when serving.
IMG_0963The ice cube trays I used this time were tiny so I opted to zest the lemon instead of slice it. Only do this if you don't mind lemon zest floating in your drink. Otherwise thinly slice and cut lemon pieces to fit inside your ice cube trays.
IMG_0964Cut a lemon in half. Place a strainer over a bowl.
IMG_0968Squeeze the lemon juice into the strainer and bowl. The strainer will catch the lemon seeds.
IMG_0971Pour the lemon juice into a liquid measuring cup. Add the lemon zest if desired. Add enough water to equal one cup. (Or however much you need to fill your ice cube trays.)
IMG_0972  Fill the ice cube tray and place in the freezer. If using lemon slices, place a slice in each ice cube compartment before pouring in the lemon water.
IMG_0974If using mint leaves, raspberries, blackberries, or small pieces of lemon slices, place in ice cube tray and cover with water. Then freeze.
IMG_9748When frozen, remove from the freezer and serve with sparkling water.
IMG_9751Place desired ice cubes in glass and pour in sparkling water.
IMG_9757Garnish with fruit as desired. Serve and enjoy!
