Berry Sangria Popsicles are something you make for a Sunday afternoon on the patio, but can easily be enjoyed just as much on a Wednesday night in, when you just need to take it easy. Either way, these popsicles are a rush of summer relaxation and carefree living.
I'm not much of a drinker, but these are the sort of pops you make because cherries are in season and the raspberries at the farmers market are plump and you have something to celebrate: I originally made these for a 4th of July barbeque, only to make them again the very next day just to have around. Sangria popsicles are something you want to just have around-- a chilled cocktail using seasonal ingredients ready right when the clock strikes 5 somewhere? Yes, yes, yes!
Serves: 6 | Total Time:
- 1 cup fruity red wine
- 1/2 cup pomegranate juice
- 1/2 cup cherry juice
- 1/4 cup cherries, pitted and sliced
- 1/4 cup raspberries, halved
- In a bowl, mix together the wine and juices.
- Divide fruit evenly among popsicle molds. Pour wine mixture into molds, over fruit until 9/10ths of the way full.
- Place popsicle sticks in mold, and freeze overnight. (Note that wine contains alcohol, which does not freeze well. I found I had to freeze these pops overnight for them to solidify (they were quite juicy/melty after only 6 hours).
