Thirsty Thursday--Peach & Blackberry Sangria Pops

The Mr. and I absolutely love sitting on the patio in the evening after work
(before the mosquitos take over).
He loves a glass of tea and I love a cocktail.
We sit and discuss our day, 
take a few deep breaths, 

One of my favorites for our patio enjoyment is a simple glass of sangria.
Normally I just pop a little fruit into a glass, 
add some libation and boom-Sangria.
But since it's so, so hot I thought--Sangria Pop!!

I've mentioned before how much I am loving all of the fresh berries this summer.
(I've been using them in everything.)
Also, my friend Carolyn brought me a huge bag of fresh peaches.

Two perfectly delicious fruits can only make an epic sangria.

Peach & Blackberry Sangria Pops

4 peaches, peeled and cut into small pieces
1/4 cup mint simple syrup
dash cinnamon
1 pint blackberries
1/2 cup pisco brandy
1/4 cup simple syrup
Pinot Grigio wine

In a blender, add peaches, mint simple syrup, and cinnamon and puree.  Pour into popsicle molds. Insert popsicle sticks and freeze overnight.  The next day, in a blender, add the blackberries, brandy, simple syrup and puree (you might want to add more or less simple syrup depending on the sweetness of the berries). Strain mixture over a fine mesh sieve.  Add to the frozen puree popsicles. Freeze overnight.

To serve, place popsicles in a wine glass and top with Pinot Grigio wine (or your choice).

  1. TEA!?!?!?!? Clearly he doesn't spend all day with children. And clearly I'm projecting my daily life onto others. But the cocktail, frozen or not, is more my speed. LOL
