Recently, I went to a rooftop bar in Battery Park (Loopy Doopy) where they served boozy popsicles inside a glass of prosecco. I thought it was a really interesting idea and went home and started googling recipes. I found a great one with Aperol (and Aperol goes really well with prosecco!) so I made a bunch, invited my friends over to try them, and had a fun housewarming party with some coworkers. The popsicles came out so well that I made extras to have just in case:

And me with the large bag of backup popsicles:

The ingredients are easy to procure and the total time of work is probably 10 minutes! The recipe:

– 1 cup simple syrup
– 3 cups grapefruit juice (you can also use orange juice, but add some lime juice to the OJ to make it more tart)
– 1/2 cup aperol

Mix all three ingredients together, then place in the popsicle mold and let it freeze overnight. The next day, they’re ready! The aperol makes the popsicle kind of slushy and they go really well with the prosecco (pour the prosecco first, then place the popsicle in the glass). The popsicles are fun (and delicious) to eat on their own. One person liked them so much that she had four popsicles!

I bought a bunch of small bites from Whole Foods, Bedford Cheese Shop and Trader Joe’s and it was a super fun party! Excited to host more people in the future (and to try new recipes for boozy popsicles!)
