Froscato is the new Moscato! To create these tricolored beauties, mix and freeze Moscato wine and orange juice in one ice cube tray and pink lemonade, grenadine and more Moscato in another. You'll then blend each mixture separately and layer them on top of one another for a magical ending to any weeknight or weekend.

There's no better way to get through a scorching hot day then with a crisp glass of rosé. To make this new version, you'll puree strawberries, sugar and lemon juice in a blender. You'll then run the mixture through an ice cream machine, transforming it into an ultra-thick and deliciously creamy treat.

If you didn't think sangria could get any better, think again! To make this frozen version, fill an ice cube tray with red wine and freeze overnight. Once ready, you'll blend them with brandy, orange liqueur, superfine sugar and frozen mixed berries. The end result is a citrusy explosion of fruity flavor that you’ll want to drink year round.
