The BIG CHILL

When it’s hot outside, what better way to cool down than with a frosty sweet

Pink grapefruit, vodka & cranberry ice pops

PREP TIME 25 MINS

SERVES 20

¹⁄³ cup (80ml) vodka

½ cup (125ml) pink grapefruit cordial

2 tablespoons strained lime juice

1 cup (250ml) sparkling mineral water

2 tablespoons fresh mint leaves, sliced thinly

3 cups (750ml) cranberry juice

1 Combine vodka, cordial, lime juice and mineral water in a jug. Divide mixture among moulds (see note). Sprinkle evenly with half of the mint. Wrap each mould completely in plastic wrap, then insert ice-block sticks into holes, piercing the plastic (the plastic wrap will help keep the sticks upright). Freeze for 6 hours or until frozen.

2 Remove plastic wrap. Pour cranberry juice over vodka layer. Sprinkle with remaining mint. Freeze for 2 hours or until juice is frozen.

3 Just before serving, rub outside of moulds with a hot kitchen cloth. Gently remove ice pops.

Notes

You need 20 x ¹⁄³-cup (80ml) ice-block moulds and 20 sticks for this recipe. Ice pops can be made several days ahead.
