DIY: a glass of ice with edible flowers

In cocktail bars, cocktail glasses are often cooled by ice cubes that are placed in there a while before a drink is poured. This keeps the glass cold for a long time. You can take this to the next level at home, by making a glass of ice! It’s really fun and refreshing on a warm summer evening. And, of course, we made it extra beautiful by incorporating edible flowers.

To make a glass of ice, you need two cans or flexible plastic molds. Don’t use glass for this, because water expands when it freezes and the glass will break. In addition, make sure that you don’t use normal flowers, but look for edible flowers.

  • 2 cans or flexible plastic molds: one slightly larger than the other because they have to fit into each other
  • Something that doesn’t freeze, like corn, sugar or salt
  • Wooden skewer
  • Tape
  • Edible flowers
  • Beverage of your choice

How to make a glass of ice

Start with the large can: pour water into it and place the smaller can in it. Weigh the small can down with corn kernels, salt or sugar. Then slide the edible flowers into the water, and arrange them with the skewer until everything is nicely distributed.

Done? Stick a piece of tape over the small can, and secure it to the inner edge of the larger can. This way everything will stay in place. After that, place the can in the freezer, for at least 4 hours.

If everything is frozen properly, remove the can from the freezer and hold the outside under the cold tap for a little while. This will help you to effortlessly remove the small can from the ice glass, and the ice glass out of the can.

Put the glass down and pour in a beverage of your choice. Cheers!
