Summertime calls for all things cool and refreshing. And what better way to spruce up classic drinks like iced water, iced tea, lemonade and cocktails than with decorative ice cubes? Cooking Light has a few decorative ice cubes that we think will be perfect for you while you’re sipping on your drinks this summer.

Directions:

All – For each of these recipes begin by boiling 3 cups of water. Then pour the water into a heatproof bowl and refrigerate for 4-5 hours. Next, continue with the directions below.

We’ll indicate in parentheses which drink we think each ice cube recipe would pair well with, but feel free to mix and match!

Blueberry Lime (water)

Put 6 blueberries and 3 lime curls in each part of an ice cube tray. Pour 1/4 cup of the refrigerated water into each part of the tray. Freeze trays 5-6 hours. Once ice cubes are frozen, remove trays from freezer, and let sit at room temperature for 4 minutes. 

Strawberry (water, lemonade and cocktail)

Put 1 strawberry half in each par of an ice cube tray. Pour 1/4 cup of the refrigerated water into each part of the tray. Freeze trays 5-6 hours. Once ice cubes are frozen, remove trays from freezer, and let sit at room temperature for 4 minutes.

Thyme (water and iced tea)

Put 2 fresh thyme sprigs in each part of an ice cube tray. Pour 1/4 cup of the refrigerated water into each part of the tray. Freeze trays 5-6 hours. Once ice cubes are frozen, remove trays from freezer, and let sit at room temperature for 4 minutes.
