Ideas for Making Make-Ahead Single Servings of Sangria?

Q: I took a recent trip to Spain and am still day-dreaming about all the fresh sangria I had. I'd love to re-create those drinks at home, but I'd rather not make a pitcher at a time. So I had an idea for making single-serving, almost ready-made, but fresh, sangria. Any ideas for how I might do this? 

I'm thinking of leaving fruit juice frozen in ice trays or whole fruits ready in the freezer. When the mood strikes, I could just pour once cup of red wine and add cubes/fruit as necessary to prepare a single glass of sangria. Has this been done before? If not, any tips on choosing the right fruit, prepping the frozen ingredients, and getting the proportions right?

Editor: It sounds like you're already on the right track, Stephanie! What about freezing chunks of fruit and juice together in ice cubes? If you infused the fruit in a little red wine before freezing, you'd get even closer to that perfect sangria flavor.

Readers, any other ideas for making individual portions of sangria?

Next question?
