Sangria Popsicles

Sweet, fruity (and BOOZY) popsicles made with fruit juices and red wine. You're welcome.

Ingredients

1
cup chopped fruit (oranges, apples, grapes and blackberries work well)
3/4
cup red wine (Tempranillo, Malbec, and Garnacha are good bets)
3/4
cup orange juice
1/4
cup fresh-squeezed lemon juice
3
tablespoons granulated sugar

Directions

  • 1 Fill a small bowl with chopped fruit. Pour wine over fruit and let soak for 15 minutes.
  • 2 Meanwhile, heat a small saucepan on the stovetop over medium heat. Add orange juice, lemon juice and sugar and stir until sugar is dissolved, about 2-3 minutes. Remove from heat and cool to room temperature.
  • 3 Pour fruit-wine mixture over a strainer into a large spouted measuring cup (for easier pouring) and reserve the fruit. Pour the orange-lemon simple syrup over the strainer into the measuring cup, as well.
  • 4 Divide reserved fruit among 6 3-ounce popsicle molds. Pour liquid evenly into molds, leaving about 1/4-inch of space at the top of each mold.
  • 5 Place handles (or popsicle sticks) in top center of each mold. Freeze popsicles for at least 8 hours before serving.

Sangria Popsicles

As prepared by Girl Versus Dough,

So there’s this trend out there right now where people turn their favorite boozy concoctions into popsicles and stuff.


I’m not really one to follow trends just because they’re popular (the elementary school lesson of “What is right is not always popular; what is popular is not always right,” YOU GUYS)… but this trend? It is so, so right. And in these waning summer days (sniffle), I’m not about to let this fad go down without a few more boozy pops in my near future – especially these fruity Sangria Popsicles.

Sangria – that sweet, fruity, iced wine drink with bits of real fruit floating around in it – is the ultimate summer drink to me. It’s refreshing, unique and tastes like fruit juice for grownups. And in popsicle form, it’s even better! Here’s how to make it:

Ingredients for Sangria Popsicles

First, grab your ingredients, including whatever fruit you want to chop up and put in the popsicle. For this round, I chose apples, oranges, blackberries and grapes, but strawberries, peaches, raspberries, even pineapple works great, too.

Chopped up fruit for Sangria Popsicles

Chop up about a cup of fruit (like a FRUIT NINJA).

Pouring wine into fruit

Place the fruit in a small bowl or measuring cup, pour the red wine over it and let it soak for a few minutes. My favorite varietals for sangria are Tempranillo, Grenacha or Malbec, but feel free to use whatever wine you love!

Cooking sugar out of mixture

Meanwhile, heat some orange juice, lemon juice and sugar in a small saucepan on the stovetop until the sugar is dissolved. Let the mixture cool to room temperature.

Straining fruit out

Strain the wine and the juices, reserving the fruit, into a large spouted measuring cup. Divide the reserved fruit evenly among your popsicle molds.

Sangria in popsicle molds

Pour the wine mixture into the molds and freeze until firm, at least 8 hours or overnight.
