Raspberry and Kiwi Sangria Popsicles -- A summertime treat for adults only | wearenotmartha.com

If you’re like me, you have a summer bucket list filled with 43,595,924 things that you didn’t do this summer. Mine consists of things like spending a million hours on the beach, eating fried clams, toasting s’mores over a campfire, and sipping gallons of sangria on my deck. Ok, now that I’m officially bawling my eyes out, I need to come to terms with the fact that this is Labor Day weekend. Deep breaths.

The good news is, last year I let go of all my fashion judgement worries and wore white pants basically all year long. Well, aside from most of the winter when Boston was drowning in snow and it was a rare occasion for me to even put on pants since I couldn’t leave the house. I just really like white pants and think white is beautiful in winter and so I said “screw it” and gave a dirty look to anyone who looked at me judgy when I wore white pants after Labor Day. And I’ll likely do the same this year.

While sangria is typically a summery drink, it can also easily be incorporated into your weekend cocktailing plans. And I am definitely not letting this one go… Especially after my rather dismal summer performance in the sangria-making department. These popsicles totally kill two birds with one stone. Bird #1: They will cool you off and Bird #2: They are made with sangria. Do you even really need more of an introduction than that?

Also, they’re superbly easy. All you need to do is puree raspberries and kiwi and combine them with some wine and freeze them. Even I can do that after a long day at work and let them freeze while I doze off on the couch and dream of cocktails.

I’m seriously ashamed to tell you that these were my only popsicles concoctions of the summer. Granted they were totally worth the wait.

But if you’re only going to make one kind of popsicle, I think you should make them boozy popsicles and preferably with sangria involved. Fruit, too. Fruit cancels out the wine I think, so feel free to eat a couple of these.

My neighbors totally think I’m having tame little gatherings in my backward with everyone eating popsicles. Little do they know it’s sangria on a stick.

Of course you could make sangria popsicles with really any fruit of your choosing. I’ve bought a carton of raspberries every single time I’ve gone to the grocery store this year. And I don’t eat kiwi nearly enough even though they’re seriously delightful.

Much like my penchant for white pants, I’m also choosing to go with theory that sangria popsicles never go out of style.  So, even though this is the last unofficially weekend of summer, don’t feel like you have to rush to the kitchen. But if you do, take comfort in the fact that these are ridiculous easy to whip up.

I hope you have lots of fun plans this weekend and are planning to finish your entire summer bucket list over the next three days. And I wish you the very best of luck. I need to at least sneak some s’mores in there somewhere, right?

What is left on your summer bucket list?

  1. Sangria in a popsicle is some seriously sneaky business, but I think I kind of LOVE it! I, too, haven’t done nearly as many things off of my summer bucket list as I had hoped, but hopefully I can sneak in a toasty s’more before it’s hoodie season again. Putting sangria in a popsicle has definitely been added to my summer bucket list! Yum 🙂

  2. I love that you have added sangria to popsicles. What a great idea to make them more adult, and wine makes everything better 😉

    I know what you mean about summer, but I love fall so much that I don’t really mind. (Winter is another matter, but that’s still months away.) Enjoy your weekend off!

  4. These look delicious, Sues! So refreshing and creative!

  5. I thought I did everything on my summer to-do list, but I think making these popsicles should be added to the end. This looks SO good!

    Wow. You go, girl! The white pants rule is stupid anyway. Who cuts out white for most of the calendar year? Not me, I can tell ya! White looks FABULOUS in winter.
    I too am bawling for lost summer fun. But there’s always next year. And you can still drink buckets of sangria and have these incredible popsicles!

  7. Cailee says:

    Yeah girl!! Keep wearing those whites because I was just reading in a fashion magazine that it’s totes acceptable to wear whites throughout the year! …and lets be real, a fitted pair of white skinnies with some cute leather booties!? Come on! SO fall! 🙂 This recipe looks amazing btw!! Love these cute little pops! YUM! Thanks for sharing!

  8. Oh I really want to get on the popsicle bandwagon! These look AMAZING!!!

  9. This summer flew by that I definitely didn’t get to do everything I wanted including making popsicles. The weather is still hot here so I can still make these gorgeous sangria ones. They sound fantastic!

  10. we are just coming into the warmer months so this looks perfect! Hope you also have a winter bucket list to get you through the cold months
