  • Place your ice cube trays or silicone molds onto the baking sheet to give them stability. Pour the wine into your ice cube trays or silicone molds.

  • Transfer the filled molds on the baking sheet to the freezer. If you have a deep freezer that works best, but this should work in most standard freezers as well.
  • Let the wine freeze for 24 hours. Since there is alcohol is wine, it won't freeze as solid as water.
  • Once the wine is solidly frozen, remove the trays from the freezer, and transfer your frozen wine cubes or blocks to a freezer-safe glass storage container (I love wide mouth pint size mason jars because they're freezer safe and affordable - plus they stack well).

To use, just remove the appropriate number of wine cubes from the storage container in the freezer and add to your recipe.
