How to Make a Simple Tutti-Frutti Moscato Drink
Whenever my friend girls ask what I’d like to drink, my answer is always the same. “Do you have something fruity?”
Fruit-filled ice cubes are a fun, easy and inexpensive way to spruce up a glass of just about anything. Not only can they elevate the look of a tablescape when on display, but they're a tantilizing last treat at the bottom of an empty glass.
These fruity cubes are not to be confused though, with traditional tutti-frutti, which is a kind of ice cream that contains small pieces of nuts and fruit. Usually fruit ice cubes are made with simple spring water and a handful of fruit. But like most recipes, you can modify this to suit your taste.
Recently, I put a spin on this old classic by switching out the water for Pink Moscato. The concoction provides the perfect excuse to have guests over for a light midweek cocktail.

For a unique twist (come on you KNEW that was coming), add fresh herbs like basil, fennel, rosemary, or lemon balm. In the photo below I added lemon balm.
Don't drink alcohol, and you find water is too bland? Try substituting the liquid used for the ice cubes with a non-alcholic distilled spirit like SEEDLIP. It's non-alcoholic, sugar free, allergen free, sweetener free, and contains no artificial flavors.
Place the cubes in a clear glass to show off your masterpiece. Add a bit more fruit for garnish and enjoy! It doesn’t get any easier than that folks now does it? Tell me please in the comments below:
