Watermelon Sangria Popsicles

I couldn’t let the summer slip away without one last popsicle recipe (I have another breakfast popsicle in the works, so no worries). I know it seems like every summer is like this, but I really felt like the summer went by in the blink of an eye. Between upcoming weddings, trips, and busy weekends, I felt like I took full advantage of summer, including eating as many popsicles as possible. I also wanted to buy one last watermelon before summer was over, resulting in a massive overload of juicy watermelon, so I knew the surplus would be perfect for boozy popsicles. Eating these reminded me of a wine slushie, which, if you haven’t had one, get yourself over to Christina’s recipe and make yourself a batch now!

I had an open bottle of hard cider from a trip over the summer, so it seemed like the logical step to use it for these watermelon sangria pops. I liked that the cider gave the bubbles a good sangria needs, but also the booziness sangria has as well. Also, it was a bonus when the popsicles separated in the freezer and created a bubbly top with the watermelon bottom! I had a specialty cider on hand for these, but feel free to use your favorite brand, my favorites include Crispin, Woodchuck, and Strongbow. Also, I chose to blend everything together for these popsicles, but if you want to keep the grapes whole/halves, feel free.

Can we agree that popsicles still need to happen into the fall and winter? Pops for all seasons!
