Summer Chill Raspberry Mint Wine-Sicles

You may already know I’ve become a fan of Robert Mondavi’s very affordable Woodbridge Line of wine, despite me being a WSWS. (Washington State Wine Snob).  It has turned out the I have enjoyed all the bottles I have sampled so far.

*Disclaimer: I received the wine and popsicle kit free of charge to give an honest and thorough taste test. All opinions expressed are my own. 

So when I got my next shipment I was really excited… until I opened the box and saw Moscato.  That has to be my least favorite wine. PERIOD.  But then as I pulled open the box, it was packaged with a popsicle making kit and directions for Wine-Sicles… OK… now your talkin’!

I was actually so excited, I dropped what I was doing and immediately ran to the kitchen to get started.  One small problem.  I didn’t have the ingredients.  Good News… I have never let that stop me, so today I will share my modified version!

FIRST… lets talk about this Moscato.  It is a 2012 with a Chile-Coquimbo Appelacian.  63% Muscat Alexandria, 21% Muscat Rosado and 16% Mixed White varieties. 

Moscatos tend to be slightly bubbly or “frizzante” (in Italian).  Woodbridge lives up to this expectation with a light “frizzante” and a sweet orange and marzipan flavor.

To my surprise, it was not too sweet for me to sip on while preparing the wine-sicles and while waiting for them to freeze, but it was sweet enough that I knew I did not need to add any additional sugar to my recipe.

  1. Well, I’m just going to have to breakdown and buy another set of molds. I kept making pops for the boys and they just leave them outside when they are playing and they disappear. Now I have an excuse to buy a set for the adults – I must try making these since I adore raspberries. I can understand they may not freeze solid because of the alcohol – is that the case?

    Thanks for sharing,
    Joanne
