The only thing better than a frosty beverage is… okay, there’s nothing better than a frosty beverage. But a grown-up popsicle is darn close 🙂
Sangria popsicles. Sangria on a stick. We had such fun with the margarita popsicles that instead of drinking the pitcher of White Sangria, we poured it into small cups and froze it.
They’re cold and refreshing. And like any other popsicle, they melt quickly in 103 degree weather. So maybe sit in the shade when you eat them. Or enjoy the view of summer from an air-conditioned room instead?
If popsicles aren’t you’re thing, grab a glass. This is my favorite white sangria recipe. I add 2 cups of sparkling water just before serving.
And instead of pouring it over ice, I use frozen peach slices as ice cubes. It keeps the sangria from getting watered down. And they’re delicious after they thaw 🙂
White Sangria Popsicles
Fresh fruit-studded White Sangria popsicles are the perfect summer treat.
- 1 bottle dry white wine
- 1/2 cup simple syrup
- 1/2 cup orange liqueur
- 2 lemons
- 2 cups chopped fruit (I used strawberries, green apples, peaches, and blackberries)
- Combine wine, simple syrup, and orange liqueur in a large pitcher.
- Juice 1 lemon into the pitcher.
- Slice the other lemon thinly and then halve the slices. Add to the pitcher with the remaining fruit.
- Pour into 3-ounce paper cups and freeze for ~2 hours until it starts to ice over.
- Insert popsicle sticks and freeze for another 2-3 hours until solid.
- To serve, carefully peel the paper cut away from the sangria pop starting with the seam.
- Eat immediately.
Yields: ~24 popsicles
Estimated time: 5 hours
Wine popsicles?! I can’t think of anything more perfect! 🙂
Ohhhh, this is great! I have a fantastic red sangria recipe, but have been having a very difficult time finding a good white one. Thanks!
It’s pretty chilly today where I am! I’ll definitely be giving these a go when it warms up though. I like the idea of ice lollies for adults only!
These are so pretty and they sound delicious!
ummm feel like picking one,..-)
That is such a fun idea! Grown-up popsicles!
Oooh. I think I need to leave work ill today… and stop by the grocery store, then the ABC store!
Oooh! These look really good! Heck, let’s be honest, I’d be pretty darn happy with a pitcher of sangria, but the popsicles are a nice change AND the promote moderation as I’m probably more likely to have a single popsicle than I have to have a single glass of a whole pitcher of sangria that I just mixed up! Thanks for the recipe!
Mmmm love these!
These look amazing 🙂
Those look refreshingly delicious. I’m pretty sure Sangria in about any form would be just fine by me. I’ll have to try this. Thanks!
After my bad Sangria date a few weeks back, I think I need to make some positive memories with my favorite alcoholic beverage to outshine three hours of misery. These popsicles will surely do the trick!
Sigh. I really want to move in with you. Can I move in with you?
Ha! Do you clean?
You’re my hero. 🙂
Ive never made a popsicle like this before, and i love the fact it is boozey! Would be great to offer guests on a hot summers day 🙂 lovely recipe indeed
What a great idea – they look delicious!
A mixed drink on a stick, frozen, love it!!!!! It looks fresh, inviting, and much better than store bought anything = )
Oh man. I think I need at least a dozen of these to get me through the work week. 🙂
Eek! What a great idea about frozen peach slices as ice cubes!
Thanks for another fun Popsicle recipe/idea. I just watched an old Throwdown with Bobby Flay and it was about ice pops!
White sangria is my favorite, and these popsicles are just adorable! They sure sound like the perfect solution to a hot summer day to me!
*LOVE*!!!! And…… I have all the ingredients! yay 🙂
and here I thought the MAH-GA-REEEETA’s treats were the answer to my dreams!! YOWZER!!
Ah the best of so many worlds! Fruits, popsicles, and sangria!
These look so refreshing, must make them!
Love these girl!! Linking to this beautiful post tomorrow 🙂
YAY!! I just went from “huh, I wonder if you can use white wine in popsicles? to google!” to “OMG, I need to stop doing everything in my life except MAKE THESE POPSICLES AND SANGRIA.” Awesome!
Where did you find the spoon shaped popsicle sticks? I’ve checked a number of craft stores but can’t find them.
At Michael’s in the “kids crafts” section.
