Want to get creative in the kitchen (children are invited too), play with flavors and styling, and feel fancy to boot? Dress up your drinks with ice cubes infused with essential oils!

With a mix of herbs and fruit, you’ll get ice cubes that taste nice and look even nicer. As they melt, they add subtle flavor to your beverages, make a gorgeous statement with little effort, and lend that little extra something every party or snack time needs.

Start whipping up some culinary creations that are as striking as they are scrumptious. Cheers to you!
