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.
