I made these popsicles way, way back at the beginning of fall 2020 and they’ve been sitting in my freezer untouched since! I was looking for a way to use up the mint from my garden before it froze and these fit the bill. Except, I just wasn’t craving a popsicle. Haha! We had a gloriously sunny day last weekend and it was finally time to try one. I must say, it was delicious and refreshing. I can’t wait to have the girls over this summer for a pool day and grown up posicles!
Elderflower Southside Popsicle
Simple, floral and refreshing. This Elderflower Southside Pop is as cool and delicious as it is beautiful! Yields 10 3oz popsicles. Recipe created by Chantelle Gabino.
- 3 oz Empress Gin
- 2 oz lime juice
- 1oz simple syrup
- 23.5 oz Elderflower Tonic Water (Fever Tree)
- fresh mint leaves
Mix all ingredients, except the mint, in a container or pitcher at least 1L in size. Stir, and pour into the popsicle molds. Take 2-3 whole mint leaves, clap them between your hands to release the oils, and place in them in the molds, using a popsicle stick to push them inside. Freeze for minimum 6-8 hours, until solid. Remove the popsicles from the freezer and let sit for a few moments before slowly pulling them from the molds. Avoid using hot water to remove as this will encourage melting. Enjoy!
I have this popsicle mold and it works wonderfully! It is a complete kit with a mini collapsible funnel (we use it all the time for various things) sticks and clear baggies for storing your creations.
Cheers to the weekend, y’all!
