4 Fun and Refreshing Family Ice Tray Projects

Happy Family Enjoying Colored Ice Cubes | Lipsey Water

As summer heat settles in, people are looking for fun and refreshing ways to drink more water. While receiving home water delivery in Atlanta ensures you have delicious, chemical-free mountain spring water, there will be times when you’ll want to add a burst of flavor to keep your favorite summer drinks invigorating. Infused ice cubes are a great way to give water a burst of flavor, are easy to make and will impress your friends and family at your next summer bash. Here are a few ideas to get you started.

Add Some Excite-Mint

Mint is refreshing all on its own, and it’s even better in a glass of water, a cocktail, or a fruity beverage. Start by filling your ice trays half-full of water, and let them freeze for about an hour. Take a bunch of fresh mint leaves and place them in each square of the ice tray. You can use one leaf per square or several, depending on how minty you like your drinks. Fill the trays the rest of the way with water and freeze, encasing your mint leaves in a block of ice.

Ice Cubes in Bloom

Edible flowers make ice cubes blossom! Large blossoms or a group of petals work best, and make sure the blooms you get are free from pesticides. Choose the flowers you like, such as roses, lavender, pansies, or geraniums, and place them in ice trays that are filled halfway with water. Once the first layer has frozen and locked the flowers in place, top with more water and freeze.

Fruit-Infused Cubes

Dice up your favorite fruits like peaches, blueberries, strawberries, or melons, and add them to your ice cube tray. As the ice melts, the fruit flavor infuses into your drink.

A Rainbow of Flavor

Pouring fruit juices or pureed fruits into an ice cube tray is a great way to add an array of color and flavor to your drinks. For a little extra fun, build ice cubes by layering different juices, such as orange, apple, and cranberry. It’s like summer in a glass! Fruit purées will cover the color spectrum without adding unwanted food coloring or artificial flavors. You can use raspberries for red, peaches for orange, pineapples for yellow, honeydew melon for green, blueberries for blue, and blackberries for purple.
