A Festive Touch: Cranberry Ice Cubes

For Thanksgiving and other holiday gatherings, cranberry ice cubes are a simple yet eye-catching touch. Use them to add a pop of color to water, sodas, cocktails, or punches (like these fall sangrias).

To make cranberry ice cubes: Bring filtered water to a boil and let it cool. (You can use regular tap water but the ice will be cloudy rather than clear.) Place cranberries in an ice cube tray, fill each compartment halfway with water, and place in the freezer. When frozen, top off with more water and return to the freezer.
