Walk around any horse show and you're sure to find some adult beverages, be it beer, champagne (I mean who doesn't love a horse show mimosa!?) or my favorite, wine.
With the summer comes horse show season and eventually the long hot days waking up before the sun and finishing after its set.
Perusing Facebook I saw this amazing, heavenly treat and immediately thought of summer horse shows....
I made these delectable wine freeze pops with my favorite Dark Horse wine, but I thought to myself, if these will be accompanying me to horse shows they definitely needed an equestrian-themed name, so I introduce you to the Chardon-neigh and the Whoa-sé freeze pops.
They were surprisingly easy to make and even tastier than I imagined!
Here is the step-by-step process to make your own wine freeze pops!
1. Buy the freeze pop bags
I bought these ones from Amazon, but there are so many choices!
2. Gather what you need!
Here's everything you'll need:
3. Label the Freeze Pop Bags
I came up with some fun names for mine, but it's not necessary. If you're feeling creative, go for it. If you don't want your roommate or significant other stealing them brand these yummies with your name!
4. Cut the Strawberries & Put in Bags
You can skip this step if you're using blueberries or blackberries.
I quartered the strawberries then sliced them thinner based on the size of the strawberry. I had some massive strawberries *wipes drool away*.
I love strawberries so it was a little difficult not to totally devour on these as I was cutting! I did end up cutting a few too many, so I got my strawberry fix!
5. Fill the Bags with Wine!
This is where the measuring cup, funnel or other vessel comes into play! Filling these is a bit risky -- no one wants spilled wine! I used a 1/2 cup and used a little less than a 1/4 cup to fill each freeze pop bag.
6. Place in Freezer
I placed the wine freeze pops on a cookie sheet and popped them in the freezer!
7. Bask in the Glory!
I mean, the wine bottle is open...let the happiness flow!
After an agonizing 48-hour wait, it's time to enjoy the fruits of your labor! *yes, pun intended!*
