Despite our best efforts, and even with exceptional wine, sometimes we just can’t finish the bottle. This was something I used to fret about — let’s be honest, who hates wasting good wine? For those rare occasions, I no longer worry, because I know that I will be putting leftover wine to good use.

How?

Wine Ice Cubes!

I keep a few trays of wine ice cubes handy. Each ice cube is approximately 2 tablespoons, so I can easily plop them into a recipe requiring wine (like my cranberry wine sauce), rather than opening a bottle just for cooking.

HOW TO USE WINE ICE CUBES

  • In recipes! (see some ideas below)
  • An easy granita! Just use a fork to mash the cubes.
  • To chill your¬†sangria (or wine, if you happen to like wine with ice cubes)
  • Freeze champagne for frosty mimosas
