Cucumber, lime, jalapeno and rose petals, with a splash of gin added for good measure. I made the mistake of thinking I needed them to be more liquid-y, and instead of adding more gin, I added (more than) a splash of water. Rookie.

The good news is that less-than-perfect popsicles are still pretty good.

Happy Monday.

More popsicles here and here.

For the curious: This is our popsicle mold.

    Interesting! I've never eaten a popsicle with jalapenos before, but I do like jalapenos. Hmm…

    Actually you might have done a good thing my not making them more liquidy with booze. Too much booze and they won't firm up. Okay for sorbet, less so for pops.

      Oh, I know it. But I think I might have been a little *too* cautious!

    What type of popsicle molds do you use? I have plastic ones now that I'd like to upgrade from.
