Peach, Blackberry, & Lime Vodka Poptails

25.7.16


Let's make some popsicles!

I have a few tips to making these pops so read through those at the end of the post before you begin.


Here's what you'll need:
  • 1 cup of blackberries (fresh or frozen)
  • 1 cup of sliced peaches (fresh or frozen)
  • 4 limes
  • lime juice
  • 4 tablespoons of honey or agave nectar
  • vodka (1.5 ounces-3 ounces)
  • a few tablespoons of water
  • food processor or blender
  • popsicle mold (I have this one
  • popsicle sticks
  • funnel 


Step One:

Put the peaches, 1 tablespoon of honey/agave, and half an ounce of vodka into the food processor or blender. Blend until smooth. At this point, you might need to add some water to thin out the liquid so add 1 tablespoon of water at a time until the liquid becomes a smooth juice. Using your funnel, pour the liquid into the popsicle mold and fill about 1/3 of the way.



Step Two:

Place the popsicle sticks into the molds and put them in the freezer for at least 2 hours.



Step Three:

Put the blackberries, 1 tablespoon of honey/agave, and half an ounce of vodka into the food processor or blender. Blend until smooth. If needed, thin out the liquid adding 1 tablespoon of water at a time until the liquid becomes a smooth juice. Pour the liquid into the popsicle mold, on top of the peach layer, and fill another third of the way. Place the mold in the freezer for at least 2 hours.

Step Four:

Cut the limes in half and squeeze all of the juice into a bowl. Add your sweetener and vodka. If your limes did not produce enough liquid to fill the molds, add some bottled lime juice. Because of the bitterness of the limes, you will probably need to add more sweetener to this layer. Fill the remaining space in the molds with the lime mixture and freeze overnight.

Step Five:

When ready to eat your popsicles, remove from freezer and run the plastic molds under warm water quickly to loosen the popsicle from the mold.


Enjoy! xo

Tips:

  • The amount of sweetener and vodka you add depends on personal preference. Taste the mixture once you've mixed in all of the elements and adjust accordingly.
  • If you want the layers in the pops to be more distinct, freeze each layer longer before adding the next. If you want the layers to blend into each other, freeze for less time in between in each layer. (I let mine unthaw a little bit after adding the last layer and then mixed it around to create the more blended look).  
  • If you don't want any chunks in the popsicles (skin from the peaches or seeds from the berries), after you blend the mixture, run it through a mesh sieve or cheese cloth.

  1. Great job for publishing such a beneficial web site. Your web log isn’t only useful but it is additionally really creative too. There tend to be not many people who can certainly write not so simple posts that artistically. Continue the nice writing
