One way to create that feeling of indulgence is to add fruit, herbs, food coloring or edible flowers to your cubes. You can also freeze coffee or tea in ice trays; to keep your beverage from getting watered down. For example, make some pink lemonade and add raspberry flavored ice cubes then pop in some fresh raspberries.
Or, for the health conscience- freeze some pomegranate seeds in ice cubes. And of course, nothing says summer like melon- add some frozen melon balls to your seltzer or wine spritzer.
