If you feel more adventurous, you can also try:

Floral Ice cubes: freeze edible flowers in ice cubes to brighten drinks. To suspend flowers in the cubes, work in layers: Fill an ice tray (one that makes large cubes so the ice will last longer) a quarter of the way with water, add flowers facing down, and freeze. Add more water to fill halfway, and freeze. Fill to the top, and freeze again.

Coffee ice cubes: enjoy your iced coffee till the last drop adding coffee ice cubes. If the ice is made from coffee, it won’t dilute your drink as it melts.

Lemonade cubes: freeze fresh lemonade or the fruit nectar of your choice in an ice cube tray. Top with sparkling water and lime slices for a refreshing fruit cooler.

Watermelon ice cubes: cut watermelon into cubes, place on a baking sheet and freeze. It will keep your drink cold and make a great snack.

Melon ball ice cubes: for a colourful twist to cocktails or sparkling water, freeze scoops of cantaloupe, honeydew, and watermelon.

Mimosa ice cubes: pour blood orange juice into an ice cube tray and freeze overnight. Add the cubes to a champagne flute and pour in your favourite bubbly. As the cubes melt into the champagne, you’ll have a juicy twist on the classic mimosa.

Mint ice cubes: incredibly versatile, mint ice cubes are ideal for everything from seltzer to mojitos. Fill an ice cube tray with a generous number of mint leaves, add water, and freeze (try basil ice cubes in lemonade and rosemary ice cubes in your sparkling water).

Glittery ice cubes: even plain old water gets exciting when you add in some glitter-infused ice cubes. Just make sure you use edible glitter!

Fun ice cubes: creepy-crawly ice cubes will make any kid (or playful adult) squirm with delight. All you need is bug-shaped gummy candies, water, and an ice cube tray!

Chocolate ice cubes: this is a quick way to give a glass of milk a makeover. As these dark chocolate cubes melt, they leave their cocoa goodness behind. Add a tablespoon of instant coffee in the melted chocolate to have a more intense chocolate flavour.

Valentine’s ice cubes: Feeling romantic? Freeze one or two rose petals in an ice cube tray and add these ice cubes to your favourite drink or cocktail to make it even more special!
