Fruit Rocks Au De Champagne- or Fruit in a Cube -Lmf

Cute little berry cubes that bring joy to your life as well as your glasses. I use these in the Summer or Spring to bring a joy to a tickling glass of ice tea, farm water, champagne, wine, or tonic water. Easy to put together, and a glorious in view.

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 1 (12 ounce) package unsweetened berries (raspberries, strawberries or mixture)
  • 14 cup raspberry preserves
  • 1 12 cups orange juice (or cranberry)
  • 1 (12 ounce) bottle champagne (or dessert wine optional)
  • iced tea (optional)


  1. Defrost berries overnight. Push berries and jam through a strainer until you have 1 1/2 cups (approx) of mixture.
  2. Put berry mixture into ice cube trays to make 12 cubes. Pour fruit juice into another set of ice cube trays.
  3. Freeze at least 3 to 4 hours.
  4. Pull cubes out with a small knife and put them into a bag for later use, and back in freezer.
  5. 30 minutes before serving put 2 / 3 cubes of berry/ juice mixture in each glass. Place the glasses in the fridge for 20 minutes or on the counter for 15 minutes to soften cubes slightly.
  6. Pour wine, or even water over cubes and serve with something sweet like a piece of cake.

These little things are so good, and not hard to make! I ran the fruit and jam through a food processor before straining, I think that helped a little. I had just enough to make 12 cubes. Made for ZWT 7.

Made mine with just orange juice and fresh blueberries . . . they're also a great addition to smooties! Thanks Andi!
