These super easy Red, White, and Blue Ice Cubes are a fun way to dress up boring water at your next backyard cookout. Perfect for Memorial Day or Fourth of July!
Aren’t these cute?!
I found the idea in Food Network Magazine and had to make them immediately. Such a fun way to dress up boring water.
Hey, maybe I just found the solution to the “I hate water” problem! … Nah. Just kidding. I still served them in lemonade. HA.
My kids, who are still pretty young, even considered them dessert. If only everything could be this easy.
- 1/2 cup red fruit juice
- 1/2 cup water
- 1/2 cup blue fruit juice or sports drink
Fill an ice cube tray a third of the way full with the red fruit juice; freeze completely, at least 2 hours. Repeat layers with the water, and then the blue juice, freezing completely in between each color.
Serve with regular chilled water, seltzer water, lemon-lime soda, or even lemonade.
The easiest way to fill the ice cube tray slots is with an angled measuring cup (affil link) or a squeeze bottle.
