Sparkling water or champagne
Square and star ice cube trays (we used these star trays)
1. To make the star-shaped fruit ice, start by filling the trays with fruit. We used raspberries and blueberries. Finish off the trays with regular water, and put in the freezer.
2. To make the cranberry ice cubes, just pour cranberry juice into a regular square ice-cube tray and freeze.
3. Once the cubes are frozen, play with your presentation. Definitely use clear glasses, so that everyone can see your beautiful ice. If you place the cranberry cube in first, then a fruit star, and then sparkling water, you'll get a pretty color gradient going up the glass. Feel free to use champagne instead of sparkling water ... just be sure not to get your drink mixed up with your kid's!
