How to Make a Simple Tutti-Frutti Moscato Drink

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.

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:
