Planning a Galentine’s dinner or maybe even a festive Valentine’s Day brunch for your closest couple friends? We have found the special finishing touch your party needs.
OXO’s Xs and Os Ice Cube Tray ($13, oxo.com) is an easy and fun way to add a bit of lovey dovey to your dinner party. For the picture above, I froze no-sugar-added cranberry juice in the ice molds overnight. Just before serving. I popped an X and an O into a rocks glass that’s 3/4 of the way filled with club soda and vodka.
If you’re not a decorator, or a person who goes all out with hearts and sparkles and cheesy hanging lights, this ice tray is a creative way to nod to the season while also serving a really delicious purpose.
Possible uses for OXO’s Xs and Os Ice Cube Tray

The frozen goods we tested held their shape really well, but we had a difficulty getting the frozen cream ‘cubes out of the containers. Still it’s not the same.
