Remember my most recent post on the Woodbridge Moscato 2012 by Robert Mondavi where I mentioned the Wine-sicles? As promised here is the Melon Mint Wine-sicles Recipe. The recipe (created by Stiletto Chef Candice Kumai), popsicle kit, and wine are compliments of Woodbridge Winery.
How fun is that, wine and popsicles combined. So not to delay all the fun, let’s get to it. Besides it’s hot outside, and these wine-sicles sounds good right now.
- Popsicle making kit
- 1 cup water
- 1 cup granulated sugar
- 4 sprigs fresh mint
- ½ honeydew melon, peeled and cubed
- ¾ cup Woodbridge Moscato
In a small saucepan, combine water, sugar and mint to create an infused syrup. Simmer gently for 10 minutes. Cool and reserve. In a food processor, blend the honeydew and wine until combined. Remove the mint sprigs and add the infused syrup, pulse to combine. Pour the mixture into individual molds; add sticks and freeze until solid, approximately 6 hours.
These Wine-sicles are fun and very easy to make. The hard part is waiting for them to be ready. They’re very refreshing, especially with the mint. These would be particularly good at a barbecue, on a girl night or anytime just for fun. They obviously can be made well ahead of time for any occasion you choose. Enjoy
I can also see where you could make other types of wine-sicles using berries and a light red wine. In fact, I may have to work on a recipe for that. Enjoy.
Time to eat…
