Some food bloggers would treat you to a sangria recipe to celebrate a warm spring weekend, but I think you deserve better than that. So instead of sharing an easy sangria recipe with you guys today, I'm turning it up a notch and sharing a sangria popsicle recipe with you today!
Like a handful of other recipes on Pink Recipe Box, this sangria popsicle recipe is one of those "can this really be called a recipe?" recipe. Basically, all you need to do is slice your favourite citrus fruit into small semi-circles, place them in popsicle molds and pour over some sangria. Freeze for a couple of hours then you're good to go! See what I mean about this not really being a recipe?
I actually used my favourite carton red wine sangria to make these popsicles because it's cheap and I love it so much. If you're looking for something more exotic or homemade, I've got loads of sangria recipes - caramel apple sangria, fall sangria, rosé sangria, sparkling summer sangria, strawberry rose sangria and very berry sangria. All of these would work wonderfully in popsicle form.
This is probably the only time you'll ever hear me say this, but you've got to go easy on the alcohol when making these popsicles. If you put too much in, your popsicles won't freeze and you'll just end up with very cold sangria. Equally, if your sangria ingredients include lots of fruit, you might not want to push them all into the popsicle molds, otherwise you'll end up with a frozen fruit cocktail with a splash of wine.
I used popsicle molds similar to these ones, but I got mine from IKEA. Amazon has some awesome choices when it comes to popsicle molds, including these awesome ice pop shaped popsicle molds, these super-cute star-shaped popsicle molds and these amazing tie-dye ice pop molds which are the coolest things I've seen all day.
I love red, white and rosé sangria equally - I really can't choose a favourite! Which type of sangria do you love most - red, white or rosé?
- 2 cups sangria
- 1 citrus fruit such as orange, tangerine, lemon or grapefruit
- Cut off two thin slices from your citrus fruit and cut each slice in half horizontally.
- Place one fruit slice into each popsicle mold and pour over the sangria.
- Place the popsicles in the freezer for at least four hours to fully freeze and then enjoy!
