I was reading an article the other day about how rosé wine mixed with grapefruit juice became so popular in France. And I thought to myself, that actually sounds delicious! So I created this popsicle recipe using rosé, freshly squeezed ruby red grapefruit, tonic water and elderflower cordial. Now this is not a very sweet popsicle but you can always add more elderflower cordial or simple syrup if you like it sweet. It’s perfect for a summer gathering and I just love its lovely pale pink hue. It would also be great for a bachelorette party! And you can also serve it with a glass of rosé. I added some edible flowers to add a contrast in color.
Now please summer come back! It’s been rather cold lately.
This recipe makes 10 popsicles.
½ littler of rosé wine
Juice of 1 large ruby red grapefruit (pulp discarded)
1 cup of tonic water
2 tablespoons of elderflower cordial
½ a grapefruit, thinly sliced for decoration
Edible flowers (optional)
Mix the rosé, grapefruit juice, tonic water and elderflower cordial in a pitcher. Taste it. If you want it sweeter, add more elderflower cordial or simple syrup.
Add a piece of grapefruit in each popsicle mold. Also add some edible flowers if you wish.
Then carefully pour the cocktail mixture into each popsicle mold. Insert the sticks and freeze overnight.
The next day, carefully remove them from the mold and enjoy!
