JOHN DALY POPSICLES (Adapted from Gingersnapjordan.blogspot.com)
The only trick with these obviously is keeping them VERY FROZEN to transport to your tailgate!
Serving size: approximately 6 popsicles. “You can take the time to freeze the layers separately for appearance, or just mix it all together for a quicker treat. Either way, they are so refreshing, and just boozy enough to be fun grown-up summer treat.”
1 cup sweet tea (or any iced tea you like)
8 TBSP vodka
1/4 cup water
1/4 cup sugar
3 drops mint oil, or fresh mint leaves
6 popsicle sicks
Mix 1 cup iced tea, juice of 1/2 lemon, and 4 T. vodka. Add to popsicle mold, paper cup, or glass and freeze with popsicle stick. If you are using a cup/glass, you may need to let the mix get a little slushy before inserting the stick to allow it to stand up.
Make a simple syrup by heating the water and sugar over medium-low heat in a pan until sugar is incorporated and mixture is slightly thickened. Add 3 drops of mint extract. Alternatively, you can rub mint leaves between your fingers to release some oils, and add them to the simple syrup for a few minutes to release their flavor. Add juice of 2.5 lemons and 4 T. vodka.
Pour into popsicle mold after first layer has frozen, and return to freezer.
