Looking for a simple yet festive way to spruce up your cocktails for the holiday season? Well, look no further because this is it! These Holiday Pomegranate Ice Cubes are a fun and flavorful way to take any cocktail recipe to the next level, without watering it down. They come together with only 4 ingredients, and can be completely customized to meet your holiday cocktail needs!
Friends, what has your favorite food trend of 2022 been? For me, mine has undoubtedly been ice cube tray recipes. From my Ultimate Fruit Ice Cubes to my Chocolate Dipped Strawberry Cubes, ice cube trays are for so much more than just making ice. In fact, they can be the key to making so many healthy and delicious recipes!
But aside from the deliciousness of these recipes, I also love ice cube trays because they are a “set it and forget it” type of recipe. You can’t necessarily freeze them for too long, and you don’t need to watch them, either. They’re the perfect recipes for busy moms like me who don’t always have time to sit and watch something cook!
And these Holiday Pomegranate Ice Cubes are no exception. They are such a delicious and easy way to keep your cocktails cool, without watering them down! And that’s because instead of using water to make these ice cubes, we’re using pomegranate juice. Why? Well, not only does pomegranate juice make for the perfect base for my Holiday Pomegranate Mimosas, but once they melt, they add a delicious, sweet, pomegranate flavor that won’t water it down. Because let’s be honest: the holidays are too stressful for watered-down drinks. 😉
As mentioned above, all you need are four different ingredients to bring these holiday cocktails to life!
To make these ice cubes we, of course, need an ice cube tray. And while any ice cube tray works, I have truly found that some ice cube trays are better than others!
Personally, I love using ice cube trays with lids. Why? Because it ensures that none of your ingredients spill out! These trays from Amazon are perfect because they’re nice and deep, and also come with lids, so you can stack them in your freezer without worrying about messing up your precious ice cubes!
Now, this is the easiest part. To make these ice cubes, simply start by chopping your oranges into small slices. You may also want to chop your rosemary into smaller sprigs as well.
Next, place your cranberries into the ice cube trays, along with your chopped oranges and rosemary.
Finally, fill each cavity of the ice cube tray to the top with pomegranate juice, then freeze them overnight. Once they’re done, pop 3-4 of them into a glass along with some Prosecco (or beverage of choice), serve, and enjoy! Store any leftover cubes back in the freezer for up to three months.
