White Sangria Summer Ice Pops
Sure, stemware is important when serving wine — from whites to reds to champagnes, there is always the perfect glass. Well sometimes in the dead of summer, wine just needs to be served frozen on a stick. Nothing is quite as refreshing as a crisp glass of white wine to fend of summer heat unless of course you are eating one of these white sangria ice pops!
- 1 bottle white wine
- 1/4 cup of mint simple syrup
- 1/4 cup of water
- Lemon slices
- Diced fresh fruit (apples, grapes, peaches, blackberries)
Combine all ingredients into a pitcher, stirring to combine. You should probably enjoy a glass of freshly made sangria for yourself while pouring the remaining liquid evenly into ice pop molds. You may have to selectively divide the fruit pieces amongst the molds to get even distribution (it's also OK if a few pieces of fruit make it into your mouth instead of the molds during this step). Place the molds into the freezer and allow them to freeze overnight or for at least 6-7 hours.
Once frozen, remove from the freezer and enjoy — or serve as a clever dessert for your next wine party dinner! Who said wine has to be served in a glass?
