Red Winesicles Recipe

If you’re feeling a bit tired, let me break it down for you: these Sangria Winesicles are a fun, fruity popsicle made with one of mom’s best friends: wine.

I first made this recipe last year and realized that I had never shared it here! So, please accept my apology for depriving you these beauties for that long – it will never happen again.

Winesicles are a fun option for the grown-ups to indulge in at a BBQ or playdate while the kids get their own less-awesome popsicles – or break them out for girl’s night, or a bridal shower! The whole point of these grown-up popsicles is having a bit of fun and being playful.

Each popsicle only contains about 1/2 cup of wine, so you don’t have to worry about over-indulging. An entire popsicle is equivalent to having a 4oz pour at a restaurant.

The popsicles are sweetened though, so be sure to pick a wine that isn’t overly sweet already.

The gelatin is important because it was the magic ingredient that stopped these beauties from melting too quickly. Believe me, I went through 4 batches before I settled on this recipe. Don’t skip the gelatin! If you don’t have plain gelatin, feel free to use a berry or citrus flavored Jell-O.

They will melt a bit faster than your usual popsicle because alcohol doesn’t freeze completely, so be sure to serve this with napkins and warn your guests to get started enjoying them sooner rather than later!

Tip: I often order my liquor from Drizly because they have a quick delivery time (sometimes within 40 minutes) and no expensive mark-ups. Purchasing from them supports local retailers, too. You can order the red wine needed for this recipe from them.

How to Make Red Winesicles

Place the water and sugar in a saucepan over medium heat. Cook until boiling and reduced by half, then add the gelatin and remove from heat. Let cool.

If desired, puree half of the fruit – it helps create texture for the popsicles.

Stir together the cooled gelatin syrup, fruit puree and wine.

Place the remaining fruit in your popsicle molds and then pour over the winesicle mixture.

Freeze until set, approximately 6 hours or overnight.
