Hi, Pam here from Sidewalk Shoes. I know I rarely post here, but it’s because I normally have a bazillion gin and tonics a week and that’s just not exciting enough to post about. But the good news is, I have a new addiction – frozen cocktails! I found these from Pops! by Krystina Castella.
Unfortunately I didn’t have any Maraschino cherries so these don’t have the, what are probably glorious, vodka soaked cherries at the tip! Believe me, the next ones will. As a matter of fact, everything I make from now on will probably have vodka soaked cherries in them because I can think of no other ingredient that promises such happiness.
Blue Lagoon Pops
- Stemmed Maraschino Cherries (one per pop)
- 4 tablespoons vodka
- 2 tablespoons blue curacao
- 1/4 cup light corn syrup
- 2 1/2 cups lemonade
- 6 drops blue food coloring (I didn’t use)
Combine the cherries and vodka in a small bowl and let sit for 10 minutes.
In a pitcher combine the rest of the ingredients.
Drop a cherry into the bottom of each mold. Pour the curacao mixture in the molds (leaving room for expansion – about 1/4 inch), insert the sticks and freeze for at least 12 hours.
Remove from the freezer and let sit for 5 minutes before removing from the molds.
**Makes 24 two-ounce ice cube-tray pops, six 8-ounce pops, or eight 6-ounce pops.
