CwU #31 Theme - Trendy Ice Cubes

It is time to get creative with water! The Cook with Us team, @chefsteve, @pandamama and @offoodandart, want so see you make some inventive ice cubes to go with your favorite drink. Trendy ice cubes are used in all kinds of drinks from cocktails to juices, iced coffee and teas. Some are made with juice or coffee to color the cube, while others are stuffed with herbs, flowers, vegetables or fruits. Some are special for being crystal clear. Perfectly clear ice is tricky to make, so we hope someone takes on this challenge! Below are some photos to get you inspired.
