My wife and I are drinking these right now with the homemade wine we made with the recipe we found on this site. We didn't freeze the wine in cubes, but put filled glass with ice, filled glass 1/3 with the wine then topped off with ginger ale.. We will try freezing the cubes too.. but what we're drinking now hits the spot!

Loved it! I can't drink a lot of red wine because of migraines and there was no way I was going to waste wine in my house! I had a lonely little bottle from Christmas that was just sitting there so - why not? This turned out very good in a nice chilled glass garnished with a lime. Great idea!

Loved this! I made 3 different types. For the first one, I used white wine and added mango to it before freezing it. The second one was red wine with frozen blueberries. With the third, I poured white wine in the ice trays and topped them with just a splash of red wine. The third ones looked so pretty! All of my guests LOVED this, and it was a nice beverage to serve at noon. Thanks for the recipe!

Great summer drink! Definitely one of my new all time favorites. Its is not too strong. I now keep an extra ice cube tray in the freezer with wine in it so I can have this whenever its hot out. I made it with both red and white wine. I preferred the red wine but hubby preffered the white. Great way to get rid of the so-so wine someone gave you for xmas. The only thing extra I did was a squirt of lemon juice. Really made a big difference.

Awesome drink! I didn't have an ice cube tray so I used a muffin tin and just filled them a little bit of the way. I also used diet ginger ale. They were super yummy and not too bad on calories!

UPDATE: MY FIANCE AND I ENTERTAINED FRIENDS RIGHT BEFORE THE HOLIDAYS. THEY BROUGHT A BOTTLE OF WINE TO SERVE WITH DINNER. THE "LADIES" MADE WINE COOLERS (I HAPPENED TO HAVE LEFTOVER WINE ICE CUBES IN THE FREEZER - YEA!), BUT THIS TIME, I ADDED CHOPPED FRUIT (I.E. LEMONS, ORANGES AND LIMES). DELICIOUS!!! Pretty good, even for someone who is NOT a wine drinker (at all!). My fiance enjoys wine very much, but never wants to drink alone. :-) Since I made a simple red pasta sauce for dinner tonight, I thought it would be a shame to not open one of our (i.e. "his") bottles of wine to serve with it. I wasn't wowed with the combination of the Chianti I mixed with the ginger ale, but thought it was decent (and is the only way I will drink wine from now on!). My only gripe (if you can call it that) is that my wine cubes didn't freeze well. I stuck them in the freezer at 2:30 PM this afternoon and at 7:30 PM, they were only semi-solid. My fiance said that alcohol takes a LONG time to freeze, so I guess I'll need to plan ahead next time (or keep a supply handy). I can't wait to try this with fruity wines - strawberry, peach, blackberry, etc. My local winery sells a variety of these kinds of wine. Now I have a reason to stock up! Thanks for sharing. :)

Super simple to make, these coolers taste not too soda-like but not too wine-like either. Plus, they look amazing.

I used a Trader Joe's (cheap!) red wine for this. The drink turned out very pretty and tasted good, but I ruined my ice cube trays making them, which was the only downside!
