Rosé Sangria Ice Pops
Rosé sangria in ice pop form. This pink popsicle consists of rosé wine sweetened with simple syrup and filled with fresh fruit.
I have to confess, I’m not as into rosé wine as all my girlfriends seem to be. But I love the blushing pink color, so I find myself getting excited when rosé wine is served at a party, and fawning over anything that incorporates rosé. Like my rosé champagne gummy bears.
I had rosé sangria at a party recently and I quite enjoyed it. I’ve made Iced Tea Sangria Popsicles before and this gave me the idea to create these rosé sangria ice pops. To keep these simple, I filled them only with strawberry slices, as I like the contrast of the bright red with the pale pink.
These are fun to eat, though they do melt fast since they are made of wine. And you do have to be careful, as each one has about 2 oz of wine. I’m a complete lightweight so I was feeling the alcohol even after a single ice pop!
- 2 cups rosé wine
- 6-8 tbsp simple syrup
- 2 cups of sliced strawberries
- 1/2 cup granulated white sugar
- 1/2 cup water
Add ingredients for simple syrup to a small saucepan. Bring to a simmer and stir until sugar is completely dissolved. Allow syrup to cool.
Stir syrup into rosé wine. Add 1 tbsp at a time until it reaches your desired sweetness. How much you will need will also vary on the wine you use as some are sweeter than others.
Add about 3 slices of strawberries to each popsicle mold. Then fill with rosé wine. My popsicle molds hold 3 oz of liquid, and after the strawberry slices, I added 2 oz of wine to each mold. Place in popsicle sticks. If the sticks float, you can put mini clips on them to hold them down in place.
Freeze ice pops overnight. Remove according to manufacturer's instructions. For the ones I use, it requires you to run the molds under warm water for a couple of seconds. Even though these ice pops will start to loosen after a few minutes at room temperature, I still find it's best to unmold them after running under warm water, otherwise if I just remove them after letting them defrost at room temperature, they usually will break as I try to remove them.
