READ Coconut Water Surprise Ice Block Recipe

80ml white wine (the sweeter the better)
220ml white grape juice
A small handful of hulled and diced strawberries
A small handful of pitted and diced peach
A small handful of diced blueberries
A small handful of peeled, diced orange
A small handful of diced red grapes
A small handful of chopped fresh mint
A few edible flowers (optional)

1. In a jug, stir together the wine and grape juice. Place a few pieces each of the fruit and mint into each mould. Pour the wine mixture into the moulds, leaving a 3cm gap at the top.

2. Place more of the fruit, mint and flowers, if using, into each mould. If needed, top up the moulds with any remaining wine mixture to leave just a 1cm gap at the top.

3. Insert the sticks with the stick-holders and place in the freezer.
