Edible Floral Ice Cubes

Garden to table edible entertaining can add a rustic and lovely touch to your everyday entertaining. By incorporating lovely flowers and plants from our garden they lend a certain earthiness that screams summer. These beautiful flavored floral ice cubes are a great way to jazz up any mocktail or cocktail for your summer entertaining.

MATERIALS:
Ice Cube Trays
2-4 Lemons
Microplane or Lemon Zester
Lemon Juicer
Filtered Water

EDIBLE FLOWERS CHOICES: 

Pansy 
Nasturtium 
Borage
Lilac 
Honeysuckle 

Steps: 

• Forage your flowers
• Squeeze your lemons into a separate dish making   sure to discard any seeds
• Fill your ice cube trays first with flowers 
• Zest your lemon into your tray next
• Pour a splash of lemon juice into each cell 
• Fill the remainder with water

You can make countless different varieties of these ice cubes to have on hand to dress your favorite drink. Sometimes I substitute in lime for lemon or fresh berries rather than flowers. Whatever combination you choose will add that extra note of freshness and flavor.
