This Sparkling Pomegranate Cocktail is a simple and delicious summer drink! Make them extra special with edible flower ice cubes and fresh edible flowers.
Cocktails on the patio anyone? Is there anything more lovely than time spent on the patio in summer, sunshine, warm air and a cocktail in hand? It’s these moments we wait for all winter long.
An Outdoor Summer Ideas Blog Hop!
Today I’ve teamed up with some blogger friends, and we’re each sharing some inspiring ideas for outdoor fun! Everything from summer drinks to table settings, planter ideas, fairy gardens and more! Thank you to Janine of Happy Happy Nester and Ashley of Modern Glam for hosting! Make sure to scroll to the end of this post to see all the great ideas.
As part of this hop I’m sharing a suuuuuuper simple summer cocktail idea, Sparkling Pomegranate Cocktails (with alcohol and without). Seriously, with just 2 ingredients it really doesn’t get any easier than this. But to kick it up a notch, I made these cocktails extra special by adding some Edible Flower Ice Cubes.
Lately I’ve been having some fun with edible flowers…I shared 10 Edible Flowers to grow in your Garden, as well as a Lemon Tart garnished with edible pansies. I just LOVE the idea of using edible flowers to make things extra special. And because I can’t stop, I decided to make some ice cubes with edible flowers too…such a simple way to make a drink even more special!
How to make Edible Flower Ice Cubes
- Fill an ice cube tray half way with filtered water.
- Add an edible pansy.
- Then add another layer of filtered water.
Then, when you’ve made your cocktail, add an ice cube or two, and a few extra fresh pansies and leaves as a garnish. So pretty.
These cubes look lovely in all different kinds of cocktails. They look especially gorgeous in sparkling water. But I really love them in these Sparkling Pomegranate Cocktails…they’re so pretty and just scream summer!
Such a simple way to create a showstopper summer drink…nothing left to do but get outside on the patio and sip away!
- You can also turn these cocktails into mocktails and use a sparkling water or soda instead of Prosecco, so everyone can enjoy them!
