Looking for a wine popsicle recipe? These strawberry winesicles are super easy and made with just three simple ingredients. They’re the perfect adult treat for those hot summer days or weekends at the beach!
Here’s an easy boozy popsicle recipe for summer. Just stir a few things together and pour into a popsicle mold! Once the pops freeze a few hours or overnight, you have a fun dessert cocktail or ice pop for a hot afternoon.
This adult treat is so simple to make (with a popsicle maker under $20) you’ll never need store-bought frozen wine pops again. This kit comes in two sizes and includes popsicles sticks, silicone popsicle molds, and a lid to hold the sticks in place and prevent spilling. It even includes a funnel to make it easy to fill!
How to make strawberry winesicles
The most important thing to remember when making wine popsicles is the ratio of wine to juice. Since alcohol doesn’t freeze solid, you need to make sure you have enough juice in the blend to get the pops to freeze.
I also find putting them in the coldest spot in your freezer helps. I have a side by side refrigerator and when I tried freezing the winesicles on the bottom shelf they didn’t freeze all the way through. But when I moved them to the middle shelf, they froze solid and were easy to remove from the popsicle molds.
As for wine, I love rosé wine with strawberries! It’s my favorite wine popsicle combination (rosé is my go-to summer wine). But you can also use your favorite white wine—chardonnay or pinot grigio would work well with strawberry and fruit flavors.
Here’s the key to making these popsicles so quick and easy—use your favorite berry flavored fruit juice! Of course, you can puree fruit in the food processor (watermelon is my favorite if I’m making juice from scratch), but it’s so much quicker to just stir together the juice and wine in a large measuring cup.
For strawberry popsicles, use a red juice blend with berries in it. Then just slice a few sweet strawberries—use fresh strawberries from the farmers market for the best flavor—and you’re ready to create this frozen treat.
Wine popsicle ideas for other flavors
Once you know how to make wine popsicles, you’ll want to try all kinds of different flavors. Here are some ideas to get you started:
- for ice cream like creaminess, substitute sweet coconut milk for some of the fruit juice
- try adding other fresh fruits—I love peaches with chardonnay and white fruit juice
- if you love strawberries, you can puree watermelon and fresh or frozen strawberries to make the juice
- and don’t forget the bubbly—try substituting prosecco, cava, champagne or sparkling wine for the wine in this recipe
No matter how you make them, these homemade strawberry winesicles are the perfect treat for hot days!
- 3/4 cup white or rosé wine
- 1-1/2 cups red fruit juice blend
- 4 strawberries, sliced
- Combine wine and juice in a large measuring cup with a pour spout.
- Place a few strawberry slices in each popsicle mold. Fill molds with wine mixture. Cover with lid or plastic wrap and insert popsicle sticks.
- Freeze until solid.
Quickly rinsing the bottom of the popsicle mold under warm water will make the frozen pops easier to release from the mold. The silicone molds are much easier to work with because you can push the popsicles out from the bottom.
