Design Fixation: Wine Ice Cubes


Wine Ice Cubes

I had a few extra bottles of open wine laying around, and they were on the verge becoming what I like to call "cooking wine." This is when they aren't so great to sip on, but still perfectly usable for sauces and marinades. And it hit me - why not freeze the extra wine so I always have some on hand? That way, the next time I feel the urge to make marinara sauce, I won't have to go buy a new bottle of wine. So I froze them in an ice cube tray!

I would recommend using a wine pouring spout to make your aim a bit more exact... it's tough to get the juice in the right spot. Then pop it in the freezer for a few hours, and voila - wine cubes that are ready for your next fancy recipe. I popped them out of the tray and into a Ziploc bag. In retrospect, I probably should have put the whites and the reds in separate bags... next time. Now go cook something delicious with them and let me know how it turned out!

  1. Thanks! I just wish I had thought of freezing wine sooner :)

  2. Thanks for posting this wonderful idea! I'm totally doing this at an upcoming party I'm planning.
