Make These Sangria Ice Pops and Win Summer
What's better than sangria on a hot summer day? Frozen sangria! Made with white wine, fruit juices and chopped fruit, these refreshing treats will be a big hit at your next warm-weather gathering.
Yield: 8-10 ice pops
- 1 cup white wine
- 1/2 cup orange juice
- 1/2 cup pomegranate juice
- 1/3 cup fresh or frozen strawberries, thinly sliced
- 1/3 cup fresh or frozen peaches, chopped
- 1/3 cup oranges, peeled and chopped
- 1/2 tablespoon sugar
- ice pop molds
- ice pop sticks
- mixing bowl
- colander or strainer
- large measuring cup with pouring spout
1: In a bowl, mix wine, orange juice, pomegranate juice and sugar. Stir thoroughly to dissolve the sugar.
2: Add fruit to the bowl and stir. Cover and refrigerate the wine, juice and fruit mixture for at least one hour.
3: Using a colander or strainer, strain the wine mixture into a large measuring cup with a pouring spout, reserving the fruit.
4: Pour wine mixture into the ice pop molds, filling each mold about halfway to leave room for the fruit.
5: Add the reserved fruit to the molds. Drop a few pieces of strawberry, peach and orange into each mold, leaving about 1/4 inch of space at the top. (The mixture will expand as it freezes.)
6: Insert ice pop sticks, freeze for at least four hours, then enjoy! If the pops are difficult to remove from the molds, run hot water over the mold for 15-30 seconds.
