Popsicles aren’t just for kids anymore. You can turn your favorite cocktails into great ice pops, with a little modification. This strawberry champagne popsicle recipe uses a little bit of bubbly to add an extra pop to an ordinary strawberry Popsicle recipe. It’s a fun, frozen way to celebrate great ingredients.

This is a great way to use up that little bit of leftover champagne from your last celebration. It still works well if the champagne has lost some of its fizz overnight. Keep reading for the easy recipe as well as some tips for making this strawberry champagne Popsicle recipe your own. There are tons of ways to personalize a good recipe.

  3. Stir water until sugar has completely dissolved. Turn off heat. Dissolving the sugar has created a syrup, which will ensure that the popsicles have a smooth texture.

Tips

  • If strawberries aren't in season, use frozen strawberries for this recipe. Defrost them so that you can puree and mix them with the other ingredients, but otherwise, they are every bit as good.
  • The recipe doesn’t call for straining the puree, but if you don’t want the seeds in your final product, run it through a sieve. Alternatively, leave your strawberries a little rougher and keep some pea-sized pieces of strawberries. These will be delicious once your Popsicles freeze.

Recipe Variations

  • Add a sprig of fresh mint to the water before making the sugar syrup and let it sit as you prepare the strawberries. This will infuse a hint of that fresh flavor into the syrup without being too obvious. You can even make the syrup ahead of time to let the mint infuse longer.
  • Strawberries are beautiful when paired with champagne, but there are many other fruits that go well in this recipe. Instead of strawberries, try two cups of pureed peaches to make a bellini-flavored ice pop. Blueberries are another great fruit to try, but feel free to experiment with your favorite combinations. You can use two different types of fruit if you can’t decide what would be best.
  • Some prefer fruit purees to juices for this recipe, but you can use two cups of orange juice in this recipe instead. Using juice will give your Popsicle a little icier, more solid consistency.
