Looking for a pretty way to dress up drinks while entertaining, or a simple flavoring for ice water? Martha Stewart has a couple ideas for making ice cubes that are more eye-catching and tasty than the usual.

Herb- and fruit-infused ice cubes are any easy way to flavor drinks and Martha has a few recipes for making colorful cubes. Frozen cucumber-basil puree sounds especially refreshing, and might be the perfect in a simple gin cocktail.
