The recipe is simple and the result impressive!This Pinot Noir blackberry frozen treat is sure to make any warm weathered happy hour even happier.
3/4 cup dark organic cane sugar
1/2 cup water
5 cups fresh, ripe blackberries, rinsed and dried
1 cup Pinot Noir
To make a simple syrup, combine sugar and water in saucepan. Gently heat while stirring just until sugar dissolves. Cool completely.
Lightly puree the blackberries with a blender or mash blackberries.
Add 1 cup of cooled simple syrup, Pinot Noir, and taste. The sweet, lightly acidic blackberries highlight the natural fruit notes of the Pinot Noir, leaving a nice, slightly tannic finish.
Pour into molds, add sticks and freeze until solid (about 4 to 6 hours).
Unmold and serve at once, or place in plastic bags for storage. Makes 10 ice pops.
