Rose petal ice cubes are a simple way to add a gorgeous twist to your everyday drinks, cocktails, mocktails, ice tea, or fruit waters. They turn a simple can of seltzer water into a gorgeous drink that gives you the feeling that you’re sipping on something fancy and luxurious. I can not take credit for this idea, as I’ve seen many people making these and fruit cubes for years. But as we head in to Spring, I thought it was a good idea to share my variation with you.
To make the rose ice cubes, first, get yourself a cute ice tray. I use this one that makes adorable mini cubes. The trick to using mini cubes is to use them with drinks that are already cold, as they melt a bit quicker. If you might want something bigger, give these a try.
Ways To Use Rose Petal Ice Cubes
These cubes are so simple to make and a gorgeous detail to add to almost any moment. Here are some ways to use them to add a beautiful touch to your occasions:
- self-care Sunday
- holiday parties
- baby showers
- bridal showers
- Mother’s Day
- ladies night
- iced tea
- at-home spa days
- dinner parties
- in the bath
- tea parties
- just because
When the cubes melt, the petals will be released into your drink and add the light flavor and aroma of rose into your beverage. I recommend replacing half of your normal ice cube amount with rose petal cubes so your drink isn’t full of petals when the cubes melt.
You’ll want to add these cubes to a beverage that will be complimented by the rose flavor. Some examples are:
- My Roseberry Mocktail
- Fruit water (fresh water with freshly sliced strawberries and blueberries)
- Lemon water
- Raspberry Seltzer
- Wine Spritzers
- Vodka Seltzers
- Rose Alkaline Water
- Probiotic Soda
Rose Petal Ice Cubes
- fresh filtered water
- dried rose petals
- ice cube tray
- Add a dried rose petal to each empty ice cube space in your tray. Very gently and slowly pour fresh water into your tray. This works better if you're pouring the water using a measuring cup or spouted mug. If you try to fill it under the tap or your water filter the rose petals will just spill out.
- Cover the tray and gently place it into the freezer. Leave the tray for a few hours to freeze.
- When the cubes are fully frozen, use them in your mocktails, cocktails, or seltzers to add a gorgeous touch.
