Wine ice pop!

The idea is refreshing, thirst-quenching but also a bit fanciful .. Wine ice pop!

Does alcohol freeze?

Pure ethyl alcohol freezes at -114 ° C, while water at 0 ° C. In order to freeze alcohol you need to add a part of water and sugar and for this reason ice lollies of any kind always have a base of sweetened syrup. The alternative is a very powerful freezer that reaches temperatures below -114 ° C.

Sparkling wine ice pop recipe

First prepare a syrup based on water and sugar (50 ml of water and 40 g of sugar). Use a saucepan and let the sugar dissolve completely in the water over low heat. Let everything cool and then add 300 ml of Sparkling wine. Pour the liquid into the ice lolly molds and let it cool in the freezer for a few hours. If you do not have the stencils you can use paper cups, but then it will be difficult to keep the stick straight and it will still have to be inserted after two hours of freezer.

Sangria ice pop

Fresh fruit and a light alcohol content make these popsicles really refreshing. Dilute the sangria with water to make sure that the icicles solidify (thus keeping a proportion of part of the water and two of wine). Cut the fruit into small pieces and put everything in the molds which will then go to the freezer for at least 4 hours.

Now you have learned the technique and so you can make ii yours using a little imagination and a thousand other variants will be possible. Enjoy!
