The trick to making these aromatic and visually stunning frozen swizzle sticks is a combination of freshly snipped herbs and an ice mold dubbed for “water bottle” cubes.
Things You’ll Need
Cylinder shaped or “water bottle” sized silicone ice cube trays
Fresh herbs: rosemary sprigs, sage leaves
Orange zest or peel, thinly sliced
Filtered or distilled water
Arrange a mix of freshly cut herbs and citrus peels evenly among cylinder ice cube molds. While we were at it, we also froze a batch of fresh flowering peppermint sprigs, which pair well with a glass of sparkling seltzer or fresh lemonade during warmer months.
These citrus swizzle sticks pair amazingly well with a combination of cranberry cocktail and a bubbling seltzer. For a kicked-up version substitute the seltzer with a sparkling wine or champagne and garnish with a single segment of orange for added color and seasonal flavor.
