A frosty beverage or chilled rosé wine may do the trick during the hot summer, but quite honestly, the kid in me wants popsicles. Moscato d’Asti is a semi-sweet, lightly sparkling, low-alcohol wine from Piedmont, Italy. When made into fruity Moscato d’Asti popsicles, they are a cool and delicious treat. Furthermore, they are super easy to make and perfect for a summer gathering.
1 cup assorted fresh strawberries and blackberries, puréed
(use whatever fruit you desire!)
6 small plastic disposable cups
6 popsicle sticks
1 cup Moscato d’Asti
Spoon pureed berries into each cup, then add an equal amount of Moscato d’Asti into each cup. Freeze approximately 1 hour (times may vary) until a popsicle stick can be inserted into the center of each cup. Note: Fruit will settle, so stir frequently during the early freezing process. Frozen fruit throughout the mixture will help the popsicle stay frozen longer. Freeze until solid. At time of serving, remove from freezer, let stand for 1 or 2 minutes until the popsicles easily slide out of cups. Serve immediately. Enjoy in the shade!
