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, let’s get to it.  Besides it’s hot outside and these wine-sicles sounds really good right now.

Melon-Mint Wine-sicles

Wine-sicles, Finding Our Way Now

Ingredients: Makes 10 wine-sicles.

Directions: 

Wine-sicles, Finding Our Way Now

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 together the honeydew and wine. Remove the mint sprigs and add the infused syrup, pulse to combine. Pour mixture into individual molds; add sticks and freeze until solid, approximately 6 hours.

Notes: There isn’t much I can add other then I put some mint leaves in each popsicle mold for color, but that really wasn’t necessary.

These wine-sicles are really 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 a at 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…

      Hi There Mama G, Thanks for such for your kind words… blush. Give these a try. They are so fun in so many ways. :-)

  • Cheryl Therrien

    Who would have thought? Wine-sicles! :)

    • http://findingourwaynow.com/ Susan P. Cooper

      Hi Cheryl, Yep, its pretty cool, in more ways then one… LOL.

  • Catarina Alexon

    What a wonderful idea, Susan!! Love it!!

    • http://findingourwaynow.com/ Susan P. Cooper

      It’s so fun to make Catarina. I know you’d love it. :-)

    Too bad my popsicle lover is my ten-year-old – the wine just wouldn’t work, for more reasons than one. But this sounds like a great adult treat.

    I should go buy a popsicle set – maybe I can try making a melon popsicle of some kind that she would eat.

    • http://findingourwaynow.com/ Susan P. Cooper

      I believe you could use an nice apple juice in place of the wine for your daughter, Leora. Let me if you try it and how it turns out. :-)

      • http://biz.leoraw.com/about/ Leora Wenger

        Grape juice? Or would that overpower the melon? Some kind of juice … (my picky eater doesn’t care for apple juice, either).

        • http://findingourwaynow.com/ Susan P. Cooper

          I would think a good white grape juice would work well. :-)

        • Jon Jefferson

          The nice thing about apple juice for stuff like this, it has a neutral flavor. It can be hidden and let the flavors from the melon and mint shine through.

          • http://findingourwaynow.com/ Susan P. Cooper

            That is very true Jon. :-)

  • Mary Slagel

    Wow. Wine and popsicles combined? That is amazing. I love incorporating alcohol into various foods and deserts but this one is an impressive one I wouldn’t have thought of.

    • http://findingourwaynow.com/ Susan P. Cooper

      Hi Mary, You will really enjoy this recipe, especially how easy it is to make. Enjoy. :-)

  • Jeri Walker-Bickett

    A grown-up popsicle to be sure ;) I’ll have to forward this one to my sister so she can try it the next time she barbecues. I’m thinking some sort of wine popsicles with blackberries would be great!

    • http://findingourwaynow.com/ Susan P. Cooper

      That it is Jeri. The nice thing about this recipe is the wine doesn’t overwhelm it. Over all it has a nice balance in flavors. Enjoy. :-)

  • Margarita Slavkova

    Hi Susan, I am coming here from Adrienne’s blog. I am glad I did. Now I have to make those Popsicles because your recipe and pictures created a sense of urgency. Good stuff!

    • http://findingourwaynow.com/ Susan P. Cooper

      Hi Margarita, I’m so glad you did and welcome… :-). These popsicles are really fun to make so enjoy and let me know what you think when you do. :-)

  • Debra Yearwood

    I’m getting together with some girlfriends on the weekend to make some garden sculptures. Its messy, sticky work. I think serving these once we’ve finished our master pieces will be an awesome way to end a creative day. :)

    • http://findingourwaynow.com/ Susan P. Cooper

      That sounds like allot of fun Debra. What a great thing to do after the there creations are done. You must tell me how it went when you do. :-)

      • Debra Yearwood

        Great success with the winesicles, they are delicious!. The sculpting was also good fun and I can’t wait to add my lady to my garden. I’ll put a picture up in Google+ later this weekend. My sister-in law has the pictures.

        • http://findingourwaynow.com/ Susan P. Cooper

          That is way Cool Debra, It pleases me to no end that the wine-sicles were a great success. I can’t wait to see the picture of you event. :-)

  • Adrienne

    That sounds so good Susan… I might just have to try those. Yummy. You know this might be a good way to get my Mom to have some wine. If something’s mixed with it then she’s good. She’ll love these.

    Thanks for sharing this recipe.

    • http://findingourwaynow.com/ Susan P. Cooper

      You’re so welcome. These are delightful, Adrienne. I know your mom would love them. :-)

  • Jon Jefferson

    Should do this with a mead then honey notes would go great with the mint and melon.

    • http://findingourwaynow.com/ Susan P. Cooper

      I think this has many possibilities Jon. :-)

  • doreenpendgracs

      Thanks Elizabeth. I agree, that would a way cool wine-sicle to make. :-)

  • CJ at Food Stories

    Never heard of wine-sicles before … What a great idea :-)

    • http://findingourwaynow.com/ Susan P. Cooper

      Hi CJ, They are really fun to make and eat. :-)

  • http://keepupwiththeweb.com Sherryl Perry

    Thanks for this Susan! This is a great idea. Just this week, I read a blog post with a recipe for beer ice cream. As much as I’d like to taste it, after reading that recipe, there is no way that I would ever attempt making it. This one, I can see giving a try!

    • http://findingourwaynow.com/ Susan P. Cooper

      Hi Sherryl, I am always into easy. These are just that and so refreshing on a hot summer day. Enjoy. :)

  • http://writespeaksell.com jeannettepaladino

    Susan — another wonderful recipe. I love honeydew melon but I’ve found in recent years that it’s become harder to find ripe ones. If they aren’t ripe they are hard without much flavor. I find that cantelopes are a better bet. What has your experience been?

    • http://findingourwaynow.com/ Susan P. Cooper

      Hi Jeannette, It all depends on the market and the time of year. I am lucky to live in a place where we have great farm to store markets. So when the honeydew melons show up I am on it. As the season moves on, good ones get harder to find. Right now they are awesome.

  • http://virtualadmintogo.com/ Elizabeth Scott

    OMG I am enjoying one of these delectable treats right now and I can attest that they are so refreshing and amazing.

    • http://findingourwaynow.com/ Susan P. Cooper

      Hi Elizabeth, They are really good, addictive really, aren’t they? :-)
