Ever have those hot-hot days where you are just sweating, like dripping, drenched hot? Feeling like you need something cool  to make you stand out and chill? Well, try out my vino pops for a change. Totally cool, totally fabulous and the “new hotness” (as my GFs in San Fran say) for summer 2012. Get to poppin! With love and great taste xx Ck

Sweet Red Wine Pops

Makes 10 popsicles

* Purchase pop molds here


1/4 cup dried hibiscus flowers, soaked in 1 cup hot water (optional)

1 cup ice, crushed

2 tablespoons lemon juice

3/4 cup elderflower cordial

1 cup Sweet Red Wine (I love anything that helps with budget! Like Woodbridge Sweet Red)


1. Soak the dried hibiscus flowers in hot water for 10 minutes to infuse the liquid.

2. In a food processor, combine the hibiscus flowers and liquid, ice, lemon juice, elderflower cordial and Woodridge Sweet Red Wine. Blend until smooth.

3. Pour mixture into individual popsicle molds, add the stick, and freeze until solid, approximately 6 hours. Easy. Donezo. Change this up with different juices, wines ,and frozen fruits!
