Ask anyone and they’ll tell you that brunch is the most important meal of the day (probably). From the utter decadence of menu staples like stuffed French toast and Eggs Benedict to the endless rivers of Bloody Marys and mimosas that are the trademarks of any boozy Sunday, brunch has unofficially supplanted baseball as America’s pastime.
However, with the quest for that perfect brunch-themed Instagram, chefs both professional and amateur alike have pushed the brunch boundaries to bold new heights, making it nearly impossible for new innovations—until now. Say hello to the champagne ice cube, the must-have brunch addition of the summer.
All you need to do to soup up your mimosas is pour your Champagne (or Prosecco, for the more adventurous types) evenly into any ice cube tray and freeze them overnight. Just remember that Champagne ice cubes won’t be as solid as regular ice cubes, but they’ll make your brunch beverage taste infinitely better. Brunchers with important client meetings the following day should keep in mind that the extra alcohol might lead to a bit of an extra hangover on Monday morning, so don’t forget to drink responsibly.
