How fun is TikTok's obsession with fancy ice? On #IceTok, TikTok users are adding fruit, veggies, herbs, and even flowers to ice in all kinds of fun shapes and sizes, for use in water, coffee, cocktails, and more. The flavored ice adds color and taste to water, stops iced coffee from getting watered down, and makes handcrafted cocktails or mocktails even more aesthetic. Even plain ice frozen in a fun container (many TikTokers are fond of small and large spheres, which look like adorable frozen bubbles when added to water) can add a little extra fun to your daily drink.
With many people working from home in this day and age, fancy ice is a fun and inexpensive way to elevate your everyday routine. Plus, it's completely customizable, saves money, and can even be a sustainable way to use up fruits and veggies that are about to go bad. It's a beautiful way to make staying hydrated a fun ritual. After all, who doesn't love the idea of sitting down with a fun drink?
And ice isn't just being stored for the aesthetic. Having a stocked ice drawer with different types on hand can be functional, too, whether you want to make a non-diluted iced coffee with coffee ice cubes, save chicken or veggie broth in premeasured portions for future recipes, or add electrolytes to your post-workout drink while keeping it cold, of course.
