Sangria popsicles

PopcycleIt’s getting close to spring break time- so time to come up with something frosty and fruity and delectable.  The secret to these is to begin by making a wine syrup- that gives you the flavor without the freeze resistant alcohol.

1 cup of red wine -nothing too bold or strident- think summery and soft

1/2 sugar

1 cup of white grape juice

Enough finely diced fruit to fill your popsicle molds(don’t pack it, just daintily strew whilst humming “Bolero”.- Any finely diced fruit, except for apples, pears or bananas will work.  Citrus should be an accent and not the primary flavor- but nectarines, melons, berries, plums are all perfect. This is a great way to use up the “spinster” fruit that you might have.  Boil the wine until it’s reduced by half. Stir in the sugar and juice. Pour the liquid over the fruit, insert sticks and freeze.
