Citrus Ice Cubes

Citrus Ice Cubes

I’ve always been an avid water drinker, preferring a simple glass of chilled water over soda or juice. Though I have to admit, sometimes I have drink envy and want to add a subtle flavor to my water. In these instances, citrus ice cubes are the perfect solution!

Not only do they add a cheerful pop of color to your drink, they add a hint of citrus to your water. They are easy to prepare and offer a simple way to transform a glass of water into a fun summertime drink. Not a fan of citrus? Feel free to get creative and add in a variety of different fruits!

I look forward to sipping on a warm cup of apple cider every fall, so I was surprised this was the first time I incorporated it into a cocktail! I asked Ian to taste test my new concoction and he gave it two thumbs-up, so it has been approved to be served to house guests (yay!)
