Seeing the American flag flying high may cause you to shed a patriotic tear, but we get most excited for the ol’ red, white and blue when it’s chilling a boozy beverage. While color coded cocktails are a great way to toast a patriotic holiday, American flag ice cubes allow a bit more leeway when it comes to drinks, as you can plop them into any clear cocktail of your choosing (we recommend white rum, gin and vodka-based drinks with these cubes). Made with bananas, strawberries and blueberries, these frozen fruity cubes infuse more flavor into the drink the longer they sit in the glass. The next time you’re celebrating our nation (or France), don’t just wave a flag, swirl a few of these colorful cubes around your cocktail glass.
