Here's a cool new way to savor the beauty of flowers: Freeze them in ice cubes to brighten drinks. To suspend flowers in the cubes, work in layers: Fill a large-cube ice tray a quarter of the way with water, add flowers facing down, and freeze. Add water, freeze. Repeat. Use only edible flowers and cooled, boiled distilled water.
Party punch calls for festive ice: giant frozen cubes capturing bright slices of fresh citrus. To make the ice, thinly slice lemons, limes, and oranges, and layer the slices in muffin cups. Fill each cup halfway with water or nonalcoholic punch, and freeze.
