Wine icepops? Wine Popsicles? What?
How can you go wrong with adult popsicles, wine popsicles? We had a 1/3 bottle of Chianti that needed to be imbibed, but I just didn’t feel like drinking it (I know, crazy, right?!) so I thought, why not freeze it and make something that I can enjoy when it is hot out instead of a glass of room temp red wine?

We have an abundance of basil in our garden, and as basil pairs perfectly with the spiciness of the Chianti, I made a blueberry/basil simple syrup to go with the wine. Besides, I needed some blueberries make it healthy, right?
The blueberry basil simple syrup has a nice fruity sweetness with a fresh herbal freshness and is the ingredient that turns these wine popsicles into a a real sweet treat. The syrup also lowers the alcohol content enough to allow the mixture to freeze.
For some alcoholic icepops you might have issues getting the mixture to freeze hard enough, so it is necessary to mix the booze with a syrup or other liquid mix until the percentage of alcohol is low enough to allow the popsicles.
What Ingredients are Needed for the Wine Icepops?
- Blueberry Basil Simple Syrup
- Red Wine
- Blueberry Basil Simple Syrup
In our case, the simple syrup made for a delicious combination with the chianti and complimented the wine while adding another layer of flavor in the popsicle molds. We hope you will enjoy these boozy adult popsicles this summer!
