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.
