What better popsicle base than watermelon in the heat of the hottest time of the year! The popsicles taste just like the drink--just much cooler!
Makes 8 popsicles
6 cups cubed, seedless watermelon (about 1 four-pound watermelon)
1/4 cup white granulated sugar
2 tablespoons fresh-squeezed lime juice
1/2 cup bourbon
Pinch of sea salt
2 tablespoons chopped fresh mint
In a blender, add the watermelon, sugar, lime juice, bourbon, and salt. Blend on high until the mixture has an even liquid consistency.
Pour the liquid into molds and place in the freezer. After 30 minutes, or when the pops are half-frozen and slushy, stir a pinch of the mint into each mold to suspend it evenly throughout each pop. Insert the popsicle wooden sticks now when the mixture is firm enough for them to stand upright. Freeze until solid, about 24 hours. Due to the alcohol content, these pops take longer to freeze.
