Day 6: Festive Christmas Wine Ice

Day 6 of 50 DIY Days: Festive Christmas Wine Ice!

I’m not really a cocktail drinking kind of girl. 99% of the time I will always choose a glass of wine if I’m drinking. SO, when it comes to the holidays I like to get a little creative with my wine drinks so I can feel like I’m drinking something fancy. Today I’m sharing how I make some Festive Christmas Wine Ice so my fellow wine lovers can also feel like they are having a “cocktail”.

Supplies needed:

  • pomegranate seeds
  • one orange
  • mint leaves
  • white wine
  • optional: silicone ball ice cube tray

Directions:

Step 1: Cut up your orange into small little triangles and pick out some small leaves from your mint.

Step 2: Place a small portion of each of these items into the bottom of each little ice tray spot. Fun fact: it seems pomegranate seeds sink, so you’ll probably find them at the bottom of each ice piece.

Step 3: If you have the ball ice tray, I suggest using a tiny funnel for this step. Carefully pour wine into each ice spot. Tap the trap a bit to get any bubbles out and refill more if needed.

Step 4: Place the ice tray in your freezer for at least 6 hours. Overnight is probably best. That’s it! You now have the perfect little ice to keep your white wine chilled for your wine “cocktail”. IF you really like pomegranate, you can sprinkle some extra seeds into your wine “cocktail”. Yum.

Day 5 of 50 DIY DaysApple Pie Butter Recipe (it’s so simple)!

I’ve have shared this recipe a FEW times on my blog because I love it! There is no sugar added to this yummy apple butter spread and it’s quite easy to make. It does take a long time to finish, but you don’t have to do much. Just blend it every few hours.

In addition to the recipe, I’ve also shared free canning labels for you to use and maybe give these as gifts (if you can part with this delicious stuff).

Head on over here to the original blog post so you can get the recipe and download the free canning labels.
