Sangria Popsicles

Popsicles: they’re not just for kids anymore. There’s no better way to refresh yourself with a nice cocktail on a hot summer day than by eating it in boozy popsicle form. Alcohol doesn’t freeze you say? As long as there’s a proper ratio with a non-alcoholic mixer (i.e. juice) it will work just fine. I’m generally not a red wine drinker (Riesling all the way) but when it’s sweetened, mixed with juice and soaked into fruit, it’s my favorite. These turned out exactly as I’d hoped: sangria on a stick! The chunks of fruit in it are super tasty. Perfect for lounging poolside, relaxing on an Adirondack chair on your front porch or treating your guests at a backyard soiree. 

I have had the same popsicle molds for a few years now and I have no recollection of where I bought them anymore (Target? Walmart? Wegmans?) but they look exactly like these ones I found on Amazon. Mine each hold about ½ cup of liquid. If you have larger molds you may want to change the serving size. If you don’t have popsicle molds you could always use Dixie cups and wooden popsicle sticks, but I think popsicle molds are a great investment so I recommend just getting a set!

Sangria Popsicles

Yield: 6 servings

Ingredients:

  • ½ c diced apples
  • ½ a medium orange, cut into small pieces
  • ¾ c red wine (I used Don Ramon Campo De Borja)
  • ¾ c Trop 50 Orange Juice
  • 3 T sugar
  • ¼ c freshly squeezed lemon juice ( I got this much out of one large lemon with my wooden reamer)

Directions:

  1. In a small bowl, Poor the wine over the diced apple and orange pieces. Let soak for at least 10 minutes.
  2. In a separate medium bowl, combine the orange juice, sugar and lemon juice and stir in the sugar. Microwave on high for 30 second intervals, 2-3 times or until the sugar is dissolved. Stir again and let cool for several minutes.
  3. Add the wine & fruit mixture to the orange juice mixture and stir to combine. Distribute the sangria mixture (fruit and liquid) evenly into 6 popsicle molds. Freeze for at least 8 hours. Enjoy!

    I’ve only made sangria once, years ago, but I know I let the fruit sit overnight to soak up the winey goodness. Do you think that would be beneficial here, or is 10 minutes enough?

    I think they soaked up the winey goodness just fine in 10 minutes! Especially enough to be in popsicles…I doubt they would taste different if you let the fruit soak longer. If you were serving this as a beverage it might be beneficial to have the fruit soak a bit longer. I may or may not have reserved 2 popsicles worth of the mixture to drink as a beverage though and I have to say it was delicious! :) Hope you enjoy these!

    Aw, this was a really nice post. Taking the time and actual effort to create a superb article… but what can I say… I put things off a whole lot and never seem to get nearly anything done.

    Hello! This is kind of off topic but I need some advice from an established blog.
    Is it tough to set up your own blog? I’m not very techincal but I can figure things out pretty quick. I’m thinking
    about creating my own but I’m not sure where to begin. Do you have any tips or suggestions? With thanks
