Here’s a fun way to add some extra pizzazz to your sangria glass: make fruity-boozy ice cubes! It’s a festive way to keep your cocktail chilled without diluting it. As the inventive cubes slowly melt, they infuse more fruity flavors into your drink. Plus, they add a decorative touch to any mocktail, cocktail, or sparkling water.

When it comes to the fruity pieces, you can use whatever you prefer. And as for the liquid, you can use wine or fruit juice. While the wine is on point, it takes a much, much longer time to freeze compared to using fruit juice. When it comes to fruit juice, I like to stick with a red theme and use either pomegranate or cranberry juice. Of course, you’re the boss of your sauce… and it’s a sipper’s paradise!

Add ‘em to a glass and top with sparkling water or my  Pomegranate Sangria!
