These look amazing in vintage cocktail glasses as part of an aperitif when guests arrive. For a really personal touch, ask your guests their favourite colour and use that to choose the right flower cube. What I love most about this is the ability to preserve the flowers a little longer than normal and to enjoy their beauty.

What you will need (Makes 12 extra large cubes):

Water (distilled water gives a really good effect)

2 extra large ice cube trays (we use silicone ice trays that make 6 cubes and are designed for sipping bourbon)

12 edible flowers in a variety of colours and shapes (source flowers that are grown to be eaten, without pesticides or other chemicals)

Method:

Although this seems a little time consuming, it’s worth doing, as this process ensures the flowers are suspended perfectly in the cubes.

1 Fill ice cube trays about a third full with water and add a flower (the flower should ideally be facing down). Freeze.

2 Once frozen, fill the second third full with water. Freeze.

3 Fill to the top with water and freeze again.
