Fruit is a clear choice for putting in your moulds but we’ve also seen edible flowers make a real statement.

How about edible violets to match your violet gin or rose to match your rosé gin? 

Just pop your chosen ingredient into the base of the mould and make up your ice cubes as you usually would. We’d love to see some inventive cubes that matches a gin’s usual garnish.

How about freezing basil or rosemary as an accompaniment to your next Gin Mare? Alternatively, cucumber and rose ice cubes are bound to make your next Hendrick’s G&T really sing.
