• 1/2 pound seedless red or green grapes
  • 2 cups chilled still water

yield: 28 ice cubes

time: 15 minutes + 2 hours to freeze

I have to admit that this idea came to me while watching my young son drop grape halves into a glass of water. Since that day I have been watching him closely for further inspiration.

1. Cut the grapes in half and divide into two equal parts. Puree half of the grapes with 1/2 cup of the water in a blender until smooth, for about 30 seconds.

2. Pour the rest of the water into a pitcher. Strain the pureed grape mixture through a fine-mesh sieve into the pitcher, and stir well.

3. Place the remaining grape halves in the wells of standard ice cube trays. Fill the trays with the grape-water mixture and freeze.
