The Cubist Ice Coctkail

colored ice cubes made of fruit juices meant for a gorgeous cocktail

The following is a slight variation on the first ice drink I ever created. The colors, flavors, and simplicity caught the attention of a publicist and helped me launch Mixed metaPours, my signature cocktail business! I think the colored ice cubes made of fruit juices were the key. 

  • Prep Time
  • 1Servings


  • 2 ounces best-quality vodka, straight from the freezer*
  • 3-5 assorted frozen fruit juice "cubes" in bright flavors/colors (Consider: orange, pomegranate, grape, kiwi, cranberry, blueberry, etc.)
  • Tonic water



1. Fill several standard-size ice cube trays with an assortment of fruit juices.


2. Crack the cubes out of the trays and assemble a mix of assorted- color cubes in the bottom of clear, chilled highball glasses.

3. Top with iced vodka. Fill with tonic.

4. GARNISH: fruit segments or wedges in fruit cube flavors.

*A non-alcoholic version of this drink could be made by simply replacing the vodka and tonic with 7-Up or Ginger Ale.
