20(ish)--- Strawberry Mint Sangria Popsicles

These are not for kiddos. But they are adult-beverage/dessert perfection.

Strawberry Mint Sangria Popsicles
Makes 5-6 popsicles

1 cup dry red wine
2 Tbsp sugar
3/4 cup orange juice
1/4 cup lemon juice
8 strawberries, stemmed and chopped
10 fresh mint leaves, finely minced

Combine the red wine, strawberries and mint in a small bowl and let sit for one hour.

Combine the orange juice, lemon juice and sugar in a small saucepan over medium-high heat. Stirring occasionally, heat just enough to dissolve the sugar. Place in refrigerator to chill for 30 minutes.

Set a strainer over a medium bowl and strain the fruit from the wine. Divide the strained berries and mint evenly between all popsicle molds (it will fill each 3/4 of the way). Whisk the cooled orange juice mixture into the wine.

Pour the sangria mix over the fruit in each mold, leaving a quarter-inch of space at the top. Place tops on molds or place molds in refrigerator for one hour prior to inserting sticks. Freeze overnight. Run molds under warm water to dislodge popsicles.


  1. These sound amazing...I love sangria! And perfect for hot summer nights, too!

  2. In Mexico they make fantastic fruit pops like this. But I think your idea takes it up on the fun meter for us adults!!

  3. I love this idea! With it being over 100 degrees for over 22 days in Louisiana, I need to make a big bunch of these this weekend! Thanks for the recipe!
