Festive Fruit Cubes



These fruit-filled cubes can turn almost any beverage into a party-in-a-glass. Pop a few cubes into a clear glass and add some Prosecco or white wine, maybe Sprite or Sangria, or plain fruit juice, or... whatever, and you'll smile at the result. 

I had some odds and ends of fresh fruit in the refrigerator, left after creating a colorful green salad with fruit. The small amount of leftover fruit could have gone into a smoothie or topped a dish of yogurt, but I really just wanted it out of the fridge, right now. 

Pop a few blueberries, raspberries and sliced grapes into each section of a plastic ice cube tray and top with water. Freeze for several hours until hard. Release and store in an air-tight freezer bag until ready to use.


Next time I might cover the fruit with white cranberry juice before freezing to add flavor without diluting my drink.


Cheers! Prosit! Slainte! Salud! Skaal! Kampai! Na zdravie!

  1. Try using lemonade for the freezing liquid, it will make a simple beverage seem special.
