Red Sangria Popsicles by

Like I mentioned before, my husband is very excited and amused with his ability to make his boozy popsicles using dry ice. So far this summer he has made margarita popsicles, our vodka red-white-and-blue popsicles and now these red sangria popsicles. Popsicles aren’t just for kids during the summer, as I’ve discovered with my husband’s youthful enthusiasm for his boozy pops. And since he didn’t care for the light-weight boozy pops that you can freeze in your freezer, he is having his fun with his experiments.

The hubby made a large pitcher of red wine sangria (click here for recipe) (for no reason except that it’s summer) and let it sit in the refrigerator for a day or two. You really do need to let the flavors mingle together a bit. The fruit soaks up the red sangria goodness – yum!

Pour them into small Dixie cups or whatever popsicle molds you want to use. Place a popsicle stick in and freeze in a cooler full of dry ice chunks. It takes about an hour for it to freeze, depending really on how many popsicles and how much dry ice you have. The hubby liked how the popsicle sticks didn’t freeze straight, making it easier to suck on, supposedly.

Make sure you let the popsicles warm up a little before pressing your lips on these red sangria popsicles. No one wants a bloody lip.

  1. What a great idea! My hubby’s new favorite drink this summer is my Sangria too, I’ll have to make these for him since his favorite summer treat in the world is freeze pops!! 🙂 Thanks for sharing!

  2. Maybe we should slurp on these during our writers’ group tomorrow 😉

  3. Yum, these look amazing! I finally broke down and bought popsicle molds over the weekend – my first batch is waiting for me in the freezer :).

  4. Right now a warm glass of sangria would go down well. Those popsicles are making me shiver. We have the sun shining but it’s sure chilly. I have a heater at my feet to warm up.

  5. Mmm…love sangria, and these Popsicles look delicious! I’ve definitely made my fair share of Popsicles, but have yet to jump on the boozy Popsicle bandwagon. I love that your husband is so in to making boozy Popsicles 🙂

  6. they look yummy!

  7. These look great! Someone recently gave me a popsicle cookbook (I’m not sure one really needs one, but now I have it!), so I guess I’ll be trying my own at some point this summer. They look like lots of fun, and I really like your husband’s dry ice method. Fun post, fun flavor – thanks.

  8. Not yet – I have a popsicle maker too, yet I haven’t started yet. Now I’m working on frozen yogurt ice cream. I love your picture Laura! I should start working on it. =)

  9. I’ve joined the popsicle craze!!! I’ve been crazy about this stuff since I was a child! Hehehe!
