Gummy Bear Ice Cubes

Gummy Bears Cubed

Fun twist on ice cubes for all ages! The flavored sparkling water ice cubes add subtle flavor to still water, or a flavor boost to a fresh glass of seltzer. Plus, the gummy bears add an extra layer of fun and color!

You’ll need:
Ice cube tray
12 oz. AHA Sparkling Water, (we like the Orange Grapefruit flavor)
Albanese Gummy Bears

Pour sparkling water in half of ice cube tray and still water in the other half of tray. Add desired amount of gummy bears to each cube. Freeze overnight.

Frosty Mock-jito

Frosty Mock-jito

Juice from 3 limes
2 tablespoons of sugar
1/2 cup of lightly packed fresh mint leaves, cleaned and stemmed
12 oz. AHA Sparkling Water, Peach Honey Flavor
1 Lime flavored frozen juice/fruit bar
Ice cubes for serving (use frozen seltzer to add flavor as they melt!)

Put lime juice, mint leaves, sugar and frozen lime bar into a blender and process until smooth. Strain out the mint bits if the texture isn’t to your liking.

Fill a 10oz glass with ice, pour over the blended lime and mint, and top off with the peach and honey seltzer. Garnish with mint and enjoy!
