Tinto De Verano
- 1 1/4 cups red wine
- 1 1/4 cups lemon-lime soda
Lime Simple Syrup
- In a small pot, combine sugar and water. Heat over medium-high heat until sugar dissolves completely.
- Remove from heat and stir in lime juice. Set aside to cool slightly.
- In a large liquid measuring cup, combine wine and soda. Add cooled lime syrup and stir.
- Divide liquid between popsicle mold slots, leaving a little room at the top for popsicles to expand.
- Freeze for at least 4 hours, preferably overnight.
- Run popsicle mold under warm water and gently remove popsicles.
- Serve and enjoy!
*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.
