Come Party With Me: Pool Party — Dessert

Although I love a decadent chocolate cake, there is no place for rich desserts at a pool party. Guests will be in swimsuits, so serve something that's refreshing, cold, and not too sweet.

These sangria popsicles are a delicious grownup treat. Made with white wine, rum, pineapple chunks, and fresh orange juice, they're the perfect pool party crowd pleaser.

For the recipe,


Sangria Popsicles

Sangria Popsicles

Sangria Popsicles


  1. 1/3 cup granulated sugar
  2. 1/4 teaspoon ground ginger
  3. Zest of 1/2 lime
  4. 3 cups fresh pineapple chunks (about 1 pound)
  5. 2 dried star anise pods
  6. 1½ tablespoons white rum
  7. Juice of 2 to 3 oranges (2/3 cup)
  8. 2½ cups dry white wine


  1. Heat a nonstick skillet over medium-high heat.
  2. In a medium bowl, combine the sugar, ginger and lime zest. Add the pineapple and toss.
  3. Scrape the pineapple into the skillet, add the star anise and cook, without stirring, until the pineapple caramelizes, 5 minutes.
  4. Stir in the rum and let the alcohol burn off, about 3 minutes.
  5. Remove from the heat and stir in the orange juice, scraping the bottom of the pan; let cool.
  6. Discard the anise. Puree the fruit mixture in a blender.
  7. Stir in the white wine and pour the mixture into icepop molds. Freeze until solid, about 4 hours.

Makes 12 popsicles.

At first, I thought maybe they wouldn't freeze either, but I think cooking off the alcohol in the rum would allow them to set up.

I thought alcohol doesn't freeze? Those sound amazing, but I don't get how it works?

I just might have to make these icepops with canned pineapple because I don't want to wait until I get to town (45 minutes away.) :) I want to make these right away because the temperature has been hovering around 110 degrees Fahrenheit for the past week, so these yummy icepops will be just right for surprising my husband when he comes home from work tonight. LOL ;)
