This post is brought to you in collaboration with Sangria Beso del Sol though all opinions are my own. I love sangria and entertaining at home so this coming Father’s Day and July 4th I am going to prepare some tasty recipes and refreshing cocktails like this Sangria Ice Pops perfect for the summer weather and for any occasion. My grandfather was from Madrid so I grew up embracing the Spaniard traditions and flavors and sangria is one of those beverages that was always present in family gatherings. My grandmother was used to prepare it fresh with real lime juice and fruits. It is easy to make but when you are having many dishes to prepare there is nothing better than taking advantage of what is available in the market and Sangria Beso del Sol is great option because it is made with real ingredients including natural citrus and fruit juices and Spanish tempranillo wine, a subtle red wine perfect to blend with other flavors like fresh fruit and drink chilled. I invite you prepare with me this easy sangria ice pops.

Preparation time: 3 hours (freezing time). This recipe makes 12 sangria ice pops. Cost per ice pop is less than $2.00 dollars. You will need a stray that fits in the freezer. Place the plastic cups in the tray and fill the cup half way with sangria. Place inside the freezer and check within an hour. When firm add the wooden stick and freeze for other half hour.
