Summer is coming. You want to eat something refreshing while you bask in the sun, but you also could go for something alcoholic because, it's frickin summer and why not? Enter: alcoholic popsicles. Yes, please! I pursued my first alcoholic popsicle recipe this weekend. I'm going to warn you, it has a bit of a kick. If you're looking for something more fruity, and less "oh damn!" I would recommend using a larger ratio of water to your rum in the recipe below.
Don't forget! Google Reader is peacin' out! Be sure to:
What you'll need:
2 c of fresh (or thawed) fruit
3/4 c simple syrup
1/4 c fresh lime juice
1/2 c rum
1/2 c water
(again, feel free to change these ratios)
a few drops of any Bitterthis recipe, it loses some sweetness after it's frozen, so if it's not sweet enough at this time, add more simple syrup or fine sugar. Then pour in molds and freeze for 5 hours.
