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!
