2 cups sliced peaches (fresh or thawed from frozen)
1 cup white wine
1/4 cup orange juice
Combine wine, peaches, and orange juice in a blender and process until smooth.
Pour the blended mixture into your popsicle molds and place in the freezer for about 1.5 hours uncovered without the sticks or popsicle mold tops.
Insert the wooden popsicle sticks after the pops have had time to set up a little, so you can place them directly in the center and they will stay upright. Allow to freeze 3-4 more hours.
