Peach Sangria Popsicles Cooking View
Annie's Original

From the moment popsicle fever took hold of me earlier this year, I have been aching to play around with so many different cocktails in popsicle form. The primary obstacle has been the kids – they see popsicles and instantly want to devour them.  I knew the idea of an adult-only popsicle would not be well received.  But, with good quality ripe peaches finally arriving in our produce bins, I simply couldn’t wait any longer. Thankfully having possibly the best ice cream ever on hand has served as an adequate distraction.

After a long day of work followed by a few hours of kid wrangling, or a weekend day of non-stop kid wrangling, a cocktail popsicle seems like the perfect reward. These are exactly what I was hoping for – a peachy, potent icy sweet treat.  These would be perfect for a summer girls’ night.  Any of my friends who want to come over and share, feel free! But hurry – I doubt they’ll last long.

Mix it Up – Some variations to try:

  • Favorite fruits – As with any sangria, this is highly adaptable. Try with nectarines or plums, other berries such as strawberries or blackberries. The possibilities are endless!
  • Fresh herbs – Feel free to add in fresh herbs as you like. Fresh mint or basil could be a nice pairing.
  • Spirited subs – Use whatever spirits you prefer in the sangria. If you like to use brandy or vodka in yours instead of schnapps, go for it!
Peach Sangria Popsicles
Yield: about 10 popsicles

Ingredients

3 peaches, divided
¾-1 cup fresh raspberries
1 tbsp. granulated sugar
1 cup plus 1 tbsp. white wine, divided
3 tbsp. peach schnapps

Directions

  • Pit and thinly slice 1 peach. Add to a bowl with the raspberries, sugar, and 1 tablespoon of white wine. Stir together gently (avoid smashing the berries or bruising the fruit.)  Let stand about 20 minutes.

  • Peel, pit, and coarsely chop the remaining 2 peaches. Combine in a blender or food processor with the remaining 1 cup of white wine and the peach schnapps. Puree until smooth.

  • Pour the peach puree mixture into popsicle molds, filling each about 2/3 of the way full.  Add a few peach slices and raspberries to each mold. (This is the popsicle mold I use. I love it!)  Insert popsicle sticks* and freeze until fully set, at least a few hours. Unmold and enjoy!

  • *Using popsicle sticks that don’t fit the mold you have?  No problem. Cover the mold(s) with foil instead of the usual lid, make a very small slit where you want the popsicle stick to go, and slide the stick in. The foil will help hold it in place in lieu of the cover. See the strawberry yogurt pop post for a visual.

    Your ice cream obsession is getting more and more fabulous with each passing day Annie! I love it! I did see one on unique sweets that was like peach pie filling and then the popsicles were rolled in cookie/pie crust crumbs!
