Creative Takes on the Ice Cube

Where’s the fun in a plain old cube of frozen water? This recipe is as simple as finding a pair of ingredients you like, chopping them up, and dropping them in an ice cube tray.

Ingredients:- cucumbers and basil
- fig and rosemary
- lime and mint
- lemon and honey
- raspberries and blackberries
Tools: ice cube trays! (we used these Tovolo ones that make perfect cubes)
1. Cucumber and Basil
2. Fig and Rosemary
3. Lime and Mint
Create a few wedges of lime, and then a round of tinier ones. Chop up the mint. Squeeze a bit of lime into the tray along with your lime and mint pieces.

4. Lemon and Honey
Slice your lemons and then cut them into mini wedges. Squirt a bit of honey into your ice cube tray, add lemons and a little squeeze of lemon juice for good measure.
5. Raspberries and Blackberries
The prep for these couldn’t be simpler. Find the smallest ones in the carton, and place them in your ice cube tray.

Feel free to mix and match if you’ve got extra ice trays.
Pour water into the tray – be careful not to overflow, you don’t want to lose ingredients.
