All right, so ice may not sound like a flavour, but when it's added to food or beverages, the effects are just as noticeable as when any other component is used. Everyone agrees that sweet drinks with lots of ice taste better than ones without, but it's important to pay attention to how much ice you add. 

Adding additional ice is the correct solution, despite seeming paradoxical, if you're concerned about things getting too wet. One small cube will melt more quickly than a few.

Ice doesn't have to be limited to water, either. By incorporating other components, you'll discover that their aromas and scents gradually seep out, allowing you to experience a smooth transition between distinct sensations. This is one drink that doubles as two!

The ability to form the ice into enormous spheres that melt gradually in a glass of your favourite beverage or into sea life, pineapples, your favourite emoji, or even the Death Star, has made moulds more enjoyable. To learn more, continue reading!

7 Flavoured Ice To Add In Your Midnight Brew

1. Lavender Flavoured Ice Cubes

In addition to adding colour to water or iced tea, a lavender-flower ice cube enhances the taste of gin and bourbon. The dried type must be brought to a boil before being cut into cubes. Bonus: For an even stronger flavour as the cubes melt, add some chopped basil before freezing.

2. Ice Cubes With Lemon Flavour

If life hands you lemons, turn them into lemon ice cubes. Here's a basic recipe for lemonade: After you've squeezed a few lemons, add some sugar and water to a bowl. However, the liquid should be transferred into ice cube trays rather than a pitcher. It's like sunshine captured in a glass when you add a handful of these vividly coloured cubes to water or a Tom Collins.

3. Dark Chocolate Flavoured Ice Cubes

This is a simple method to transform a glass of milk. These cubes of dark chocolate melt, leaving their delicious cocoa behind. Even though the recipe indicates that adding a tablespoon of instant coffee is optional, you should still use it because the granules intensify the chocolate flavour without giving it a coffee aftertaste.

4. Rainbow Coloured Ice Cubes

To make these clever cubes, you need a gin and tonic with seven coloured liquids, including Gatorade (chilled to prevent the ice from melting too quickly). Make sure the new beverage is colourless before substituting it. For optimum WOW impact, drop the cubes in the following rainbow order: red, orange, yellow, green, blue, indigo, and violet.

5. Vanilla Ice Cubes

Do you believe that there is no way to improve on iced coffee? You'll be amazed if you try tossing a couple of vanilla ice cubes into the cup. This also applies to iced tea. Vanilla bean, sugar, vanilla extract, and almond milk are used to make the delicious, creamy cubes.

6. Crimson Cubes

While there are edible varieties of this attractive flowering plant, it's best to be cautious and use dried hibiscus intended for human consumption while making these crimson cubes. As with brewing tea, boil the flowers and steep them, then pour the cooled liquid into ice cube trays.

7. Matcha Latte Cubes

Combine all the latte ingredients in a small bowl and whisk until well combined. Strain the mixture through a fine-mesh sieve into a measuring cup or other spout-equipped receptacle. Evenly divide the mixture among the 12 cubes by pouring it into a silicone ice tray. Store in the freezer for a solid frozen state.

This is your cue if you haven't thought about the kind of ice you should use for your brew yet! Prepare to elevate your drink to a new level.
