One of my favorite things about summer is popsicles. This summer I thought it would be fun to experiment with mixing up combinations of my favorite cocktail ingredients in popsicle form. Let the boozy popsicle experiment begin. First up, Orange-grapefruit Aperol; and it was quite a delicious pop, if I do say so myself. It was just the right combination of sweet and bitter.
Here’s my recipe (inspired by various bitter-sweet recipes I found online):
1 1/2 cups juice, combination of orange and grapefruit (I used mostly oranges with 1 grapefruit); squeeze and strain the juice
1/4 cup simple syrup (1:1 ration)
1/2 cup Aperol
This filled my 8-popsicle tray.
To the delicious combination of juice and booze. Let the summer of popsicles begin. Cheers!
