Cascade Ice Melon Mixer

Nothing says refreshing more than this Melon Mixer! Fill a glass halfway with ice cubes (try the Fruity Ice Cubes below!) and then add a small handful of blueberries and a few squares of watermelon. Top it off with delicious Cascade Ice Blueberry Watermelon. Let stand for a minute or two to allow the fruit to enhance the delicious taste of Cascade Ice, and you’ll have a flavorful drink that all of your friends will be raving about!

Fruity Ice Cubes

We think that these fruity ice cubes are the perfect addition to any summertime drink cocktail or beverage you can dream up! Mix and match your favorite fruits to try different flavors and see what you come up with! We’ve got this one to get you started.
