Ingredients

For the Popsicles:

  • 4 Cups Watermelon cut into small chunks, 600g
  • 1/2 C White Wine I use Pino Grigio, 118g
  • 1 oz Vodka
  • 1/2 oz Cointreau
  • 1 oz Simple Syrup* see note

For the Garnish (optional)

  • 10, 1 " small wedges of watermelon rhine on, 2.54cm

Instructions

  • Place watermelon, wine, vodka, cointreau and simple syrup in a high speed blender. Blend on high until ingredients are smooth. Skim off foam and discard.
  • For no garnish, pour mixture into the popsicle molds, wipe the top of the mold dry, place lid on popsicles and insert the popsicle sticks. Freeze overnight or at least eight hours.
  • If a garnish is desired, pour mixture into the popsicle mold leaving 1/4" (6.35mm) of head space. Place popsicle mold in freezer without lid. Wipe the top dry. Freeze for one hour. Insert the garnish in each popsicle, place lid on top, insert popsicle sticks. Freeze overnight or for at least 8 hours.
  • To release the pops, I turn the mold on its side and run water over the mold on both sides. I usually have to pry the lid off, wedging a fork in between the lid and mold, especially if I forgot to dry the top of the mold off before freezing. Gently wiggle the popsicle stick to remove the popsicle... be careful here, as I've broken the stick several times.
  • Store popsicles in a plastic freezer bag or covered container with parchment layered between the popsicles for up to one week.

Notes

*For the simple syrup, combine equal parts water and sugar, I use 1/2 C water and 1/2 C sugar, into a small sauce-pot. Bring to a boil, swirl and allow sugar to dissolve. Cool, then use in popsicles. Store leftovers in covered container in refrigerator for up to two weeks.
