We’re all set for summer with these grown-up ice pops! The cosmopolitan is a classy, classic cocktail, and famously Carrie Bradshaw’s drink of choice in Sex and the City. It has dangerously drinkable fresh and fruity flavours, with a lovely citrus tang that comes from lime juice and triple sec. Instead of lime slices to garnish you could add orange slices for a different colour combo and fruity flavour.
300 ml/10 oz. cranberry juice
1 tablespoon white sugar
20 ml/3/4 oz. triple sec
10 ml/1/3 oz. vodka
3 fresh limes
4 ice pop moulds and
Mix together the cranberry juice and sugar in a jug/pitcher until the sugar has dissolved. Add the triple sec, vodka and juice of 2 of the limes and mix together.
Slice the third lime into thin slices and place one into each of the ice pop moulds.
Pour the cranberry juice mixture into the ice pop moulds and add the sticks in a straight, upright position. Freeze for at least 8 hours or overnight until solid.
When ready to serve, remove the cosmopolitan pops from their moulds and serve straight away.
