Summer Strawberry Star-Cube Refreshers

summer strawberry star-cube drink in a glass with garnish

5 from 1 reviews

Meant to add a little burst of fresh Summer flavor to your drink, these star-cubes give you hints of strawberry, mint, and lemon zest. When added to sparkling water, the star-cubes melt and bubble ever so gently to give your drink a pretty pink hue and a refreshing splash of flavor. I also love that you can adjust the amount of flavor by adding more or less star-cubes to your drink!



8oz Strawberries

1 1/2 tablespoons Lemon zest (1 medium lemon)

1 1/3 tablespoon Sugar

4 medium Mint leaves

1 cup Blueberries

Sparkling water

Optional drink garnish: Lemon slices and mint sprigs


  1. In a food processor, blend trimmed strawberries, lemon zest, sugar, and mint leaves until it becomes a smooth puree (about 30 seconds).
  2. Spoon your strawberry puree into an ice cube tray or mold shapes and freeze overnight. Lay your blueberries out flat on a freezer safe surface and freeze overnight as well.
  3. Keep the strawberry puree and blueberries frozen until you are ready to serve. Prepare the glasses by adding ice, star-cubes, and frozen blueberries to the drink, then topping off the top with sparkling water and garnish. Add about 2-4 strawberry star-cubes to each 8 oz glass, adjusting the amount depending on your desired flavor strength. Enjoy!
