It’s been a hot month here in the Hamptons! If we aren’t at camp or the beach, you can definitely find us trying to cool off. And, what’s better than your favorite cocktail after a long and hot day in the sun? Your favorite cocktail…in popsicle form. The rule is if you can drink it, you can freeze it. I’m obsessed!
If you’ve been following me on social media, you can probably see that we have been entertaining in the backyard quite a bit. I prefer that over anything. It’s super low-key and the kids are able to have room to run around.
The kids obviously love their popsicles so I thought it would be fun to make some for the adults, too. I recently found this delicious sangria popsicle recipe online that we loved. The fresh fruit and the icy coldness together is so refreshing! It also doesn’t hurt that you get a nice little wine buzz while you’re at it. Best of both worlds. Am I right!?
Scroll down below for all the ingredients and directions. It’s super easy and all it takes is TWO STEPS! Make ahead of time and keep in the freezer for your backyard bbq or…whenever the craving hits. No one is judging. It’s summertime!
2 cups red wine
1/4 cup triple sec
2 cups club soda
1/4 cup orange juice
1/4 cup honey
1 cup frozen mixed berries
1 kiwi, peeled and sliced
1 nectarine, cut into small slices
…or any fruit that you prefer!
1. Mix together wine, triple sec, club soda, orange juice, and honey. Fill 8 popsicle molds with an equal amount of fruit to each, then fill with wine mixture.
2. Insert sticks and place in freezer overnight, or until frozen through. Enjoy!
Another option? Freeze the same recipe in an ice cube tray, blend it up, and you have yourself a sangria slush! So good.
Like I said, you can make any cocktail into a popsicle. Here are some recipes I found online that would be a great option if Sangria isn’t your thing:
Cucumber Gin & Tonic Ice Pops // Boozy Campari Citrus Pops // Creamy Margarita Popsicles // Bloody Mary Popsicles // Watermelon Mint Julep Pop
