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."

Ready In:
5hrs 15mins


  • 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)


  • Defrost berries overnight. Push berries and jam through a strainer until you have 1 1/2 cups (approx) of mixture.
  • Put berry mixture into ice cube trays to make 12 cubes. Pour fruit juice into another set of ice cube trays.
  • Freeze at least 3 to 4 hours.
  • Pull cubes out with a small knife and put them into a bag for later use, and back in freezer.
  • 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.
  • 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!

    What a wonderful are only limited by your imagination! I used frozen blackberries and strawberry preserves for the 'fruit' cubes, and strawberry nectar for the 'juice' cubes! I also used sparkling water, but look forward to trying with champagne or spumante. Thanks for stretching my creative boundaries, Andi!

    Made this with fresh mango and mango nectar and Asti - wow - this was really good. The nice thing is that I have ice cubes ready to go for the next time I have a hankering for this - which will probably be later today!
