FRUIT ICE CUBES

cheers to a long weekend! planning to have a little hotel staycation here in los angeles and maybe a beach bbq with friends. what are your plans? if you’re hosting a party of just hanging out by the pool i recommend trying these colorful fruit ice cubes….

for starters we bought a variety of fruit and herbs. then, we cut the fruit into really thin slices before adding them to the water in the tray. it was fun to play around with the colors and shapes, experimenting with different flavors. we kept some simple with a small slice of lemon and made bolder combos like mint + cucumber and lemon + sage.

you can add them to a cocktail or to a pitcher of plain water for a punch of color.

we used the leftover fruit to make fusion water for the office. it’s so much easier to drink water throughout the day when it’s this pretty! hope you have a wonderful holiday weekend! – bri

    This weekend we are in Reno, NV. Not that I am a gambler, but my oldest son is in a basketball league and we have a tournament all weekend here! So we’ll be watching a lot of basketball. Happy to be here with other fun parents too 😉

    Such a great idea! I always “pimp” my water with cucumber or lemon, but I never thought of fruits or even herbs! Such a cool idea, especially as ice cubes : ) I am definitely gonna try it out soon!
