COCKTAIL POPSICLES: COOL SANGRIA POPS RECIPE

Here is my latest version of cocktail popsicles: Sangria Pops. 

I always have loved serving big pitchers of fresh fruit Sangria for a party and I like to use the fruit that is fresh and locally available. But here is a new way to greet your party guests that pretty, frosty cold, and delicious... perfect for a hot summer night. They are even pretty enough for a special occasion. Make up tons of these fresh fruit Sangria Pops in advance and serve them on a platter filled with ice or in a chilled wine glass. Either way, guests will love them!

SANGRIA POPSICLES

Makes 12-24 popsicles depending on the size of the cup or mold

1 bottle white wine (you can use what you like- even Rose is good)

3 cups white grape juice

2 cups fresh fruit of any combination (I used peaches, strawberries, cherries, and green grapes)

1 teaspoon sugar

2 teaspoons orange juice

Small plastic cups or popsicle molds

Popsicle sticks

Slice the fruit into small chunks or slices. Put in the bottom of a pitcher and add the sugar and orange juice. Stir well so that the sugar dissolves. Pour over the wine and the grape juice. Stir well. Pour into small plastic cups arranged on a sheet pan or cake pan that will fit into your freezer. Let them become semi-frozen for an hour or so and then add the popsicle sticks. Let them freeze for at least 4 hours- more if you have a large mold or larger cup.

Serve on ice or in chilled wine glasses... you can even pour chilled white wine over them... easy and delicious!
