Sangria on a Stick!

DSC04853Add a fun twist to your next grown-up pool party or barbeque with these tasty alcoholic ice pops.  
Sangria Ice Pop
3 cups sparkling white grape juice
1/4 cup Cointreau
11 oz. can mandarin oranges in light syrup, set aside 1/4 cup of the syrup
Juice of one lime
Juice of one lemon DSC04844
12 3 oz. Dixie cups
12 Wooden sticks (purchase at craft store, we used “mini jumbo” sticks which were a bit wider and shorter than traditional sticks)
Combine grape juice, Cointreau, mandarin orange syrup, lime juice and lemon juice.  Drop two mandarin orange segments into each of 12 Dixie cups.  DSC04845Pour mixture over oranges, filling to within 1/4” if the rim.  Set filled cups into a 9x9 baking pan and place in freezer.  After 1:15 hours, insert wooden sticks into partially frozen mixture.  Sangria ice pops will be completely frozen in about 3 hours. 
Serve immediately after removing from freezer by tearing the Dixie cup away from the ice pop.  Caution:  these do melt quickly on a hot day, so be prepared for a bit of drip-age.
