There are tons of different sangria recipes out there, and you should feel free to play with this recipe and make it your own. I love mango, so I add it to the fruit mix, but you might prefer strawberries or oranges. Just use this method as a guide to have fun with them!

Note: If you don't have paleta molds, use disposable cups or any glass you have around that isn't too wide.

Ingredients

  • 1 cup white wine
  • 1 ½ cups mixed chopped fruit (I used white grapes, mango, plums, nectarines and pineapple)
  • ¾ cup white grape juice
  • ½ cup white peach juice
  • ¼ cup lemon juice (you can substitute orange juice for a sweeter flavor)
  • 5 tablespoons sugar
  • pinch salt

Procedures

  1. 1

    Combine the wine and the fruit in a bowl and allow to macerate for at least 20 minutes.

  2. 2

    Meanwhile, put the grape and peach juices and the sugar in a small saucepan over a moderate flame and cook, stirring constantly, until the sugar dissolves. Turn off the heat and cool.

  3. 3

    Strain the wine-soaked fruit, reserving both wine and fruit.

  4. 4

    Stir in the wine into the cooled juice mixture, along with the lemon juice and salt.

  5. 5

    Divide the fruit evenly into the paleta molds, and pour in the liquid mixture (leave a bit of room at the top of each mold, as the mixture will expand as it freezes).

  6. 6

    Freeze; insert a stick once the mixture is semi-frozen so the stick will stand on its own. Freeze until completely set, at least several hours. Unmold the paletas by dipping the molds into a pan with tall sides, filled with warm water. Leave for a few seconds and pull up gently.
