No-Cook Recipe: Sauvignon Blanc-Apricot Popsicles

Last week, I shared one of my favorite summertime ways to enjoy a drink: frozen. This week, we’re at it again, except this time I’m starting out with wine. Like a glass of sangria, clerico, or even a spritzer, this is wine in a different (read: more fun, less classy) form. And it’s still really, really good.

The ingredient measurements are left open. Depending on the size of your popsicle mold, you’ll need more or less than I used. (Mine makes three 2-0z. pops in one go, which is pretty small.) But if you end up with leftovers, don’t worry. Unless you end up imbibing what’s left in the cup, make a granita. Pour the leftover onto a plate or sheet pan, freeze, and then scrape off with a fork. Then, serve like a shaved ice and enjoy with a spoon.

This doesn’t yield a sugary popsicle. If you think you’ll want it on the sweeter side, add more sugar or more juice. You don’t need the best wine, either, because you’ll be adding both sugar and juice. (I didn’t even need a bottle opener for what I bought.)

If kids will be enjoying with you, don’t miss these tips for making non-alcoholic popsicles, too.

I spent three and a half months living in Venice, Italy when I was twenty, in the fall of 2007. It was a rare and fascinating experience considering most people breeze through the city for a week or two to hit the tourist spots and take a gondola ride.

I was still there after the tourists got too hot, the weather got too cold, the water got too high. In my weeks spent wandering the streets, exploring different neighborhoods, and trying to get beyond the frustrating layer of tourists, I found a sliver of the authentic Venice. Read More
