When the temperature rises in the city we all bike to the nearest ice cream store. But sometimes I don’t feel like sweet and creamy. I rather deal with my thirst. What about a beer, some wine or little boozy? Here is my solution; boozy popsicles. Ice cream made out of your favourite Summer drink.
Moscow Mule Popsicle
A popsicle made out of a Moscow mule is a spicy refresher. I made a classic Moscow Mule like always and stuck it in my freezer, easy as that. Once you get it out of the freezer you better start licking as a mad man, alcohol is tough to freeze so easily melt. No problem in that department though, I used Ketel One Vodka. The bottle is a limited edition to celebrate the 325 years of the Nolet Distillery. I love a copper bottle like that. I received the bottle during a bloody mary workshop, but since I’m not very fond of Bloody Mary, I made myself a Moscow Mule with it. While writing this, I’m wondering how a frozen Bloody Mary would taste?
Gin Tonic Popsicle
And why not freeze your Gin Tonic with a slice of orange? I added some lavender to my Gin Tonic and let it rest for a short while. The lavender is also one of the botanicals in Damrak Gin. It added some subtle but nice flavour. I found the recipe on this blog: Uit Paulines Keuken.
Ruby Port Popsicle
And the Ruby Port didn’t mind being frozen up with some summer fruits (raspberries), better yet, it was great after a long day at work. You can find the recipe over here: here. I replaced the bubbles with some port.
Feel free to share with me, what kind of drink you like to see made into a popsicle?
