Ok, ok, I know…. TWO BOOZY RECIPES IN LESS THAN A WEEK!? All I can say is that it’s summer and I’m living large and taking charge, okay? Last week you got raspberry champagne pop-tarts and this week we’re cooling off with ultra basic (but super delicious) rosé popsicles. Prepare your liver and bellies for these summer water treats.
Let the record show that rosé is my beverage of choice in the summer. It’s delicious, totally refreshing, and I like to trick myself into thinking it’s a little more hydrating than a margarita or daiquiri. But let’s be honest- sometimes a cold beverage isn’t good enough in the summer. Sometimes you need something colder.
Sometimes you’re so hot you fear your face might actually melt off. Sometimes you’re tired of embarrassing sweat stains soaking through your jean shorts. Sometimes a frozen treat is the only thing that will take the edge off of the Africa-hot temperatures in your backyard. Luckily, when the sun is assaulting you and you need hydration and dessert all at the same time, there’s rosé popsicles to save the day.
I got the idea for these rosé popsicles from Jeni’s Splendid Ice Creams. Earlier this spring, they came out with a Frosé sorbet that was so good that I knew I had to recreate the flavor in popsicle form. I followed Jeni’s advice and used pureed pears as the sweet base for the frozen mixture and I added a dry rosé and fresh summer strawberries to round out the flavor of these pops. The result is nothing short of fab.
These rosé popsicles are every bit as boozy as they are dessert, a treat that tastes entirely like rosé wine and fresh fruit all at the same time. But the best part is how simple they are! All of the ingredients get dumped into a blender and the pureed mixture heads straight for the popsicle molds. I like to add a few sliced strawberries at the end, but this step is entirely optional and up to you. Your call!
I’m sharing these rosé popsicles today in celebration of Billy’s annual popsicle week! You might remember that last year I shared the recipe for roasted strawberry and buttermilk popsicles. The event is always hugely successful, so I was excited to be able to participate again. Be sure to check out his site for more frozen treats that a number of bloggers will be sharing later this week. In the meantime, give these rosé popsicles a try and let me know what you think! Happy hump day!

These Rosé popsicles are boozy treats inspired by everyone’s favorite summer wine! With a pear and strawberry puree base, these pops are icy beverages in dessert form that everyone will enjoy!
- Prep Time: 5
- Total Time: 240
- Yield: 10
- 1 heaping cup (150 gm) peeled, chopped pear
- 1 heaping cup (150 gm) stemmed, quartered strawberries
- 12 ounces rose (preferably one that isn’t terribly sweet)
- 2 ounces simple syrup
- ½ cup sliced strawberries, optional
- Combine all of the ingredients in a blender and process until smooth. Divide the mixture between 10 (2.5 ounce) popsicle molds and freeze in a flat place in the freezer for one hour. Use a popsicle stick to break up any frozen chunks and push the sliced strawberries into the mixture. Add the popsicle sticks and freeze until solid, about 6 hours. Unmold and enjoy!
- I use a popsicle mold that makes 10-2.5 ounces popsicles. Your yield will change if you make smaller or larger popsicles. The preparation and ingredients will remain the same.
- The alcohol in these popsicles will cause them to melt faster than some popsicles. Be sure to keep them frozen until you’re ready to enjoy them.
