How to make ice cubes with flowers and useful tips

  • Collect the flowers just before using them, at their optimal point of freshness and without signs of disease.
  • Separate the petals of larger flowers so they fit better into the tray's compartments. Then, place them back together to create a dazzling effect.
  • Test the flowers before using them! Make sure its flavor matches the drink you are chilling. For example, we use lavender to add flavor to our GIN and we discovered that homemade lemonade is ideal.
  • Freeze in layers for a stunning result. Fill the ice cube tray halfway with water and place the flower on the surface. Gently add a few drops of water to the flower to set it in place. Freeze for 12-24 hours, then pour another layer of water to fill the ice trays. Work quickly so they don't melt. Freeze for 12-24 hours and they are ready to use!
