Chill Your Wine Instantly!!

 

Wine typically takes 2-3 hours to cool in the fridge, an hour in the freezer, or even the 15 minutes it can take to chill your wine in a bin of ice and salt! We have a great solution that allows you to chill your wine instantly, and provides a booze-infused snack once you’re finished – frozen fruit!

Just about any sweet fruit will pair well with crisp white wine, while sweeter wines, like Riesling and some White Zinfandels tend to pair better with tart berries and cherries. But really, there are no hard-set rules here— get adventurous, mix and match and find out which combination works best for you!

Here is a guide of the best frozen fruit & wine pairings to try:

Raspberries – Rosé

Peaches – Chardonnay

Riesling – Blackberries

Muscat – Mango

Sauvignon Blanc – Blueberries

Pinot Grigio – Pineapple

White Zinfandel – Cherries

RED WINE POPSICLE BARS

We have a delicious, boozy treat for you that is perfect for a grown-up summer – Tinto De Verano red wine popsicles! Enjoy these easy-to-make popsicles with your favourite RJS Craft Winemaking red wine, lemon lime soda and homemade lime simple syrup. The richness of the red wine paired with the tartness of the lime, and sweetness of the syrup will make these popsicles a favourite!

Total Time: 4 hours 15 minutes

Yields: 10

Ingredients 

Lime Simple Syrup* 

  • ·         1/4 cup granulated sugar
  • ·         1/4 cup filtered water
  • ·         Juice of one lime, approx. 2 tablespoons

Tinto De Verano

  • ·         1 1/4 cups red wine
  • ·         1 1/4 cups lemon-lime soda              

Instructions:

 

Lime Simple Syrup

1. In a small pot, combine sugar and water. Heat over medium-high heat until sugar dissolves completely.

2. Remove from heat and stir in lime juice. Set aside to cool slightly.



Mix

1. In a large liquid measuring cup, combine wine and soda. Add cooled lime syrup and stir.

3. Freeze for at least 4 hours, preferably overnight.

4. Run popsicle mold under warm water and gently remove popsicles.

5. Serve and enjoy!

Recipe Notes

*If you like your popsicles less sweet, you can cut the simple syrup in half and simply replace it with an extra two tablespoons each of wine and soda.
