I did the beer bottles with sugar candy. I made the mold with silicon and then made them with sugar candy. They came up amazing. I used 1/2 cup of regular sugar and 1/2 cup of light corn syrup (equal amount of the ingredients). I cooked in the microwave for about 8 minutes 2 to 3 minutes at the time. With the same recipe you can make the ice cubes, the only problem is that using regular sugar they come up yellow. I hope it helps!
