We’ve got watermelon left over from July 4th, so today we’re juicing it and transforming it into ice pops—with tequila, thanks to this recipe from LoveAndOliveOil.com.
Here’s the whole story. Check out the site’s many beautiful recipes.
Ingredients For 6 Pops
1. COMBINE water and sugar in a microwave safe container or glass measuring cup. Heat on high for 30 seconds to 1 minute and stir until sugar is dissolved and mixture is clear. Set aside to cool.
2. MAKE the watermelon juice: Roughly chop the watermelon. You’ll need about 3 cups of chopped melon to produce about a cup of juice. Run the melon through a food mill if you have one, or crush and then strain through a fine mesh sieve.
3. COMBINE watermelon juice, sugar syrup, lime juice and zest, and tequila in a small bowl or pitcher. Pour into ice pop molds. Insert sticks and freeze until solid.
Beyond the simple treats of childhood, ice pops have been elevated to gourmet treats. Consider adding some of these recipe books to your repertoire:
