I found this stars ice tray at Sur La Table and I immediately knew I wanted to try making these cocktails. Of course you can use regular ice cube trays as well, but stars are just so much fun!

I’ve always enjoyed added fruit puree to champagne for brunch or an afternoon champagne cocktail and this is a similar idea but with a prettier presentation.

The fruit ice cubes are made out of fruit puree. Once they melt, they just add fruit puree to the champagne, giving them a little color and sweetness. The fruit cubes also help to keep the champagne chilled.

July 4th Champagne Cocktails

Prep Time: 10 minutes
Course: Drinks
Cuisine: American
Servings: 10 ice cubes

Ingredients:

  • 1 cup fresh strawberry halves for red ice or fresh blueberries (for dark purple ice)
  • 1-2 tbsp water
  • 1 bottle champagne or sparking wine

Directions:

  1. In a blender, add strawberries and 1 tbsp water. Blend on highest speed until smooth. If needed, add more water so that the blender can properly puree the berries. If you are making the blueberry version, add blueberries and water and blend until smooth (it's okay if there are still little skin pieces, but you do want them to be quite small.)
  2. Pour into ice cube molds (leaving a little room on the top for them to expand when they freeze) and freeze until set. I froze mine overnight. Right before serving, add ice to glasses and pour champagne over the ice.
