Happy #FatSnacks Friday Cuties!

I am half way to New York for a little fun and #FatSnacks in the Big Apple. {Follow me on Snap Chat @mimicutelips & IG to keep up with me this weekend.} You know I love that city like a fat kid loves cake. Plus, I did a seven-year stint there as a child. Peep my past NYC Eats post here and here. In the name of a great weekend I’m sharing some wine ice cubes I made for my Mother’s Day Tea Party.

If you’re new here, then this graphic will explain what #FatSnacks is all about.

Mother’s Day wasn’t just about the tea this year, it also included a cocktail. Everyone loves a good cocktail because it was a tea party I wanted something really classy and festive like. So I went with Sangria; it is my adult beverage of choice. Note: If you don’t drink alcohol you can make these with lemonade or another type of juice for a good mocktail.

Wine Ice Cubes 1

Strawberries – Pineapples – Blueberries

When I think of Sangria I think fruit; so I cut up the fruit of my choice into bite-size pieces. You know how I roll, make it your own. Cut up the fruits of our choice, toss in some mint for a mojito taste.

Wine Ice Cubes 2

Silicone Baking Pan

I place a little bit of fruit inside each lip cavity of my silicone baking pan. I love these because they are totally flexible, I’ve so baked brownies in here. I also wanted to use something I already had and you know I keep my branding on point at all times. No seriously.

Wine Ice Cubes 3

Filled with liquid

Make sure you don’t overfill them like I did in a few of these. It makes it hard to get in the freezer. Since this is silicone I put them on a flat surface prior to putting them in the freezer.

Wine Ice Cubes 4

All done!

When you take them out of they should look something like this. Cute right.

Wine Ice Cubes 5

Put them in a glass

See, still cute.

Wine Ice Cubes 6

Filler up!

Then add your Sangria or juice; I added a few more blueberries for the sake of appearance.

This is a nice touch of detail to add to a soiree. You can make the cubes in all kinds of shapes, a number #40 could be cute for a milestone birthday or an initial for maybe an Engagement Party. The options are limitless but your quest will surely take note.
