Aaaaaand the boozy popsicle journey continues with Pimm's Cup Popsicles. If you're a fan the Pimm's Cup Cocktail, you'll love this frozen treat. It's super refreshing and packs a ton of flavor. You'll enjoy how cold it is on a hot day. Cocktail on a stick!
In this recipe, I added a few slices of cucumber & strawberries to the pop. So at the very end you get a nice little frozen treat. I also used Ginger Beer because that's what I had in our fridge. You may use ginger ale if you please! If you're wanting to mask some of the booze and make it sweet a simple syrup will do the trick. Maybe even a mint one...oooh!
And if you don't have popsicle molds, make a simple granita!
You can see how to do it with this delicious Frozen Cappuccino recipe I made last summer. I imagine it to be like a grownup slushee. Mmmm.
And we're off!
It's simple! Here are the ingredients. Water is missing in this equation.
Mix Pimm's No. 1 with FLAT ginger beer and water. (Just open your ginger beer the night before & pop it in the fridge)
Squeeze a little lemon in there. One or two squeezes is just fine.
Put a slice of cucumber on the bottom of each popsicle mold & add a few slices of strawberries too.
Fill each mold with the cocktail mixture.
Freeze for about an hour & a half .
And then add in the popsicle sticks.
Freeze for about 6 hours, or until fully set. Bust into those!
Nothing like making a popsicle out of one of your favorite cocktails!
