Continuing our basil-in-cocktails theme this week, these impressive ice cubes pair well with our Orange-Basil Sangria recipe.

A pretty edible flower adds an extra-special touch, and they keep your drink cold longer without watering down the flavor. Try using violas, chamomile, sorrel, citrus blossoms, apple blossom, borage, basil flower (yes, they’re edible), lavender, mint, lemon balm or sage blossoms. (this is hardly an exhaustive list, but I think all of these choices would combine very well with this recipe!)

They sound so fancy, but they’re actually quite easy! Plus, they’ll add that finishing touch to cocktail hour the next time you entertain company!
