Nothing says summer like a chilled drink or frozen dessert. My favourite this time of the year are ice pops or popsicles. Since I am already on the elderflower craze these days I might as well use this as base for my first ice pop recipe on this blog.
You can buy elderflower cordial or you can pick elderflowers and make your own elderflower cordial. Both works in this recipe but I prefer to make my own. It is a fun activity and a good excuse to go outside and work on your summer tan.
- 1L (4 cups) of water
- 125ml (1/2 cup) elderflower cordial
- 1 lemon, sliced
- a few mint leaves
- fresh elderflowers, optional
- Thinly slice the lemon and spread it with the mint in the ice pop form, it will infuse the ice pops with a subtle flavour. Add elderflowers if you want a pretty additional ingredient but this is totally optional and is merely for looks. I tend to make different looking sets but they all taste pretty much the same.
- Mix the water and the elderflower cordial and pour it into the ice pop form. Add the popsicle sticks and freeze your elderflower ice pops for a minimum of 6 hours.
