Alright you guys, break out your bookmarks! You’re going to want to save this recipe, I guarantee it.
All summer long I’ve been indulging in my favorite wine, rosé. To me, there is nothing better than a cold, crisp glass of beautiful, blushing wine on a warm day, and with new wines like it coming out (https://www.mcbridesisters.com/SHE-CAN) that encapsulate the feeling of summer in a bottle or a can, you just can’t get enough. It’s refreshing, delicate, and goes with pretty much everything! On Instagram, I’ve often shared my favorite winemaker of the pink stuff, Whispering Angel, and just couldn’t resist finding other delightful ways to consume their tasty vino.
My first attempt was with frozen rosé ice cubes which, if I don’t mind tooting my own horn, were brilliant. LOL. However, I was always crunching on them before I even finished my glass of wine. So, why not skip the ice cubes altogether and go FULL ROSÉ POPSICLE status?!
Because really, what better way to combine summer refreshment than frozen fruit and wine all chilled and ready to eat?
Don’t they just look darling? Well, let me assure you, they taste even better than they look. I made sure to impart a few sweet and fresh ingredients so that the recipe didn’t leave you feeling like you’re just sucking on a bottle of wine (although there’s nothing wrong with that).
Are they boozy? Undoubtedly. Are they still delicious? A resounding YES!
