I adore adding these colorful and flavorful ice cubes to my beverage whether I’m poolside in summer or fireside in the fall or winter. The cubes are a perfect addition to a BBQ or for backyard entertaining. They are a hit at parties and bonfires too!
These would also be a great addition to holidays beverages at Christmas, New Year’s Eve, Thanksgiving, Easter, or the Fourth of July. They would be delightful to include in a baby shower or bridal shower menu as well. A great and refreshing idea for birthday parties too.
However, the cubes are easy enough to make for everyday enjoyment too!

Suggestions for Cocktails and Mocktails to Add these Fruit Ice Cubes too
There are many options to add these Margarita Flavored Fruit Ice Cubes too, including both cocktails and mocktails.
Ideas for Mocktails:
I’m sharing several drink ideas for kids and those looking for nonalcoholic beverages to add these flavored ice cubes too. Kids will love having these special ice cubes added to their drinks. My kids love mocktails. They simply love having a special drink of their own. Plus, they get some fruit, which is always a bonus in my book!
- 7up or Gingerale or other clear soda pop
- apple juice or other juices
- iced tea
- charged water
- sports drinks
Mocktails are fun for pregnant moms too because they can enjoy a special drink without any alcohol in it. With a mocktail in hand, pregnant moms can join in the fun of adult beverage time too, plus get some extra fruit!
Ideas for Cocktails:
Drink ideas to add these fun and tastily flavored ice cubes too for alcoholic beverages.
- Rosé wine
- Chardonnay, Pinot Grigio, or any white wine
- any other cocktails with liquor
- red wine
- peach iced tea mixed with white wine (half and half) or champagne
The ice cubes could be added to any beverage for added color, flavor, and fun! Grab an ice cube tray to prepare these festive little cubes and pop it in the freezer until frozen.
Try other types of fruit to mix it up. Some of my other ideas include mango, lime, lemon, herbs, apples, kiwi, raspberries, blackberries, and jalapeños. Another fun idea is to make these ice cubes for a bloody mary (or NA version) by using olives, limes, tomatoes, chopped pickles, onions, and jalapeños. I’m trying that idea out next! The options are endless and the cubes so easy to prepare.
Mom’s Time for Self-Care
The result of using these ice cubes is a very colorful and pretty beverage to enjoy, perfect for busy moms! Moms need to pay attention to self-care and relax. We can’t pour love into our families if we are on empty ourselves. We need to recharge the mom battery! Sit back and relax with a fun beverage with a blast of fruit in the end. You will be happy you did it:)
I love how these cubes keep your beverage cold and as the ice cube melts, it doesn’t water down the drink but adds flavor from the margarita mix. Plus, as the cube melts, it loosens the fruit from the ice so I get bits of fruit as I drink. At the end of the cup, there are more delights as most of the fruit falls to the bottom of the cup and becomes the treat to enjoy at the end:) Yummy!
These ice cubes at a flair of enjoyment to any beverage, perfect for grabbing a good book to get lost in reading while sipping a drink poolside, out on the patio, or deck.
I hope you enjoy these fruit ice cubes for your own cocktails and mocktails:) Eat well (or drink well) and enjoy life!
