If you can pour you can make these Blooming Edible Flower Ice Cubes! There isn’t really much skill required or even a recipe, but there are a few key things you should know before you start. 

Pink hued ice cubes with edible flowers frozen into them are oiled onto a round silver tray. There is a glass with liquid in it and a few ice cubes. As they cubes of ie melt they are revealing the edible flowers inside.
Ice cube trays|| Thanks to the invention of silicone ice cube trays you can literally make just about any shape or size, floral filled ice cube you heart desires! I have a large square silicine mold for rocks glasses, a skinny ice cube tray for tall glasses, and even an ice cube mold that makes itty bitty squares. I tend to choose which mold to use by first choosing what type of glass I will be using and what beverage I am making them for.  However, if you just want to use the standard ice cube molds you have had under your kitchen counter for years that is fine too. I do suggest if you plan on investikng in new ice molds of any shape or size to try and find ones with lids. It makes stacking/storing in your freezer a cinch.

Edible flowers|| If you grow your own herbs or have a garden, chances are you have your own small supply of edible flowers to use for these blooming edible flower ice cubes. Stay away from blossoms with really strong, potnetially overpowering flavors like chive blossoms. They may be pretty, but their onion flavor is a bit of a turn off in a fruity drink. Unfortunatley, I have a bit of a black thumb, so I use an online source for edible flowers. While I am glad to have access to an amazing assortment of edible blooms, there is a downside, and it is that it can be pricey to ship edible flowers, so I really only order them for secial occasions. 
When deciding which blossoms to use I first think about what shape ice cube I am making and what glass I am going to serve my drink in. Knowing these 2 things ultimately helps me decided which blooms are best for what occasion and I don’t waste any money ordering blossoms that I don’t need. The ice cubes that I made in these pictures are filled with Alyssum, Dianthuslavender, hibsicus, and Bachelors buttons blossoms.

The liquid|| Honestly, you could use just about anything for the liquid in your Blooming Edible Flower Ice Cubes. If you want a BIG floral reveal as the cubes melt in the glass you will need to use an opaque liquid like I did here. While boiled and cooled tap water will produce perfectly clear ice cubes with suspended flowers! For these beautiful pink hued ice cubes I used Premier Protein Peach Clear Protein Drink. I will be serving these cubes in iced tea and cold filtered water. As the cubes melt they reveal the blossoming flowers as well as lend a subtle peach flavor and an infusion of protein into my drinks.
