  • 1
    Begin by gathering your ingredients.
  • 2
    Fill a small bowl with chopped fruit. Pour wine over fruit and let soak for 15 minutes.
  • 3
    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.
  • 4
    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.
  • 5
    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.
  • 6
    Place handles (or popsicle sticks) in top center of each mold. Freeze popsicles for at least 8 hours before serving.

More About This Recipe
  • 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! There you have it. A trendy, tasty popsicle that’s perfect for cooling off, chilling out and celebrating these last summer days!
