These slightly sweet and highly addictive wine-based popsicles will keep you coming back for more.
I’ve been all over these popsicles the past two weeks. If you are like me and have a bit of a love affair with wine, these popsicles are for you (and go really well with a glass of wine on the side!). I was inspired by the plum wine I would always order when my friends and I would go to Wagamama. I honestly haven’t thought of the noodle bar in ages, but I just bought their cookbook and all the memories came flooding back. The stores near actual me didn’t have any, so I thought instead I would take the literal road and mix ripe plums with my favorite pinot noir. Best. decision. Ever.
These popsicles are so addictive and are lightly sweet with a wonderful balance of wine and plum. I promise you won’t be able to just have just one!
- ½ cup sugar
- ½ cup water, divided
- 6 plums, peeled and sliced
- 1 cup pinot noir
- In a saucepan, heat the sugar and ¼ cup of the water until the sugar dissolves and the mixture just begins to simmer. Add the plums and allow to cook for about 1 minute. Allow to cool slightly.
- Blend the plums in a blender until smooth. Add in the wine and remaining water and blend until combined. Pour the mixture into popsicle molds and freeze for about 1½ hours, then insert popsicle sticks. Allow to freeze until solid - about 3 - 4 hours. To remove, run warm water over the molds to help release the popsicles.
