Rosé is bae. I think we can all agree it’s the ultimate summer drink and can be enjoyed in so many ways! When I first saw FrutaPop’s rosé pops, an homage to the awesome otter pops we all ate growing up, I was beyond stoked. But these pops’ price tag was a little out of my budget ($60 for 12), and I knew I could make them myself for waaaaay cheaper. Turns out, I was right! They are super easy to put together — the hardest part of the process is waiting for them to freeze! This grown-up spin on a kid classic is adulting at its finest.
- bottle of rosé
- edible flowers
- 1 cup of sugar
- zip popsicle bags
Begin by making two different types of simple syrup with fresh herbs. We went with rosemary and lavender; it went great with the rosé!
Simple syrup is a great way to add fun flavors to your cocktails and drinks. To make the syrup, bring 1/2 cup of water and 1/2 cup of sugar to boil over the stovetop. Add the herbs in and let simmer for 10 minutes. Strain the herbs and let cool in the fridge.
Using a funnel, add rosé to the popsicle bags, leaving some room for the flowers and syrup. One bottle made five pops.
Add one teaspoon of syrup to the bag and mix it in.
Lastly, add the edible flowers to make the pops super dreamy.
Freeze them overnight.
V hard to wait overnight to try them.
Take them outside and enjoy on a sunny summer day!
