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 Red White and Blue ice cubes cute?!
I found the idea in Food Network Magazine and had to make them immediately. Such a fun way to dress up boring water.
you only need a couple items
red fruit juice
blue fruit juice (or sports drink)
My kids, who are still pretty young, even considered them dessert. If only everything could be this easy.
These colorful ice cubes are also good for that cold drink you’ll need…to wash down all these Red, White, and Blue Muddy Buddies you’ll be consuming!
Hey, maybe I just found the solution to the “I hate water” problem! … Nah. Just kidding. I still served these ice cubes in lemonade. HA.
- 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.
