Rosé Popscicles

Rosé Popscicles

These berry delicious icy treats are a summertime indulgence that you never know you needed! Dipped in a glass of rosé, you’ll be craving these on the daily. Here’s how you make them!

Prep time: 15 minutes
Total time required: at least 8 hours
Makes 20 popsicles

Ingredients

  • 1 bottle of Two Sisters Vineyard Rosé
  • 6oz thinly sliced strawberries
  • 6oz raspberries (halved)
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice
  • 2 tablespoons granulated sugar
  • Popsicle mould

Instructions

  1. Pour 3oz of Two Sisters Vineyard Rosé into each popsicle mould and add 3 strawberry slices and 3 raspberry slices. Set aside.
  2. Add the remaining strawberry and raspberry slices to a small bowl and mash. Once all solids are mashed, add the lemon juice and sugar and stir until combined.
  3. Pour the mash into each ice popsicle mould equally, leaving room at the top.
  4. Put the lid on and add the sticks if they are not attached. Freeze for three hours.
  5. Remove from freezer and move the sticks around to prevent the berry slices and berry mash from settling at the bottom.
  6. Freeze again for five hours.
  1. Note: the alcohol in Rosé makes it more difficult to freeze so when serving, plan to enjoy immediately.
