Infidelity in the Freezer


I cheated on my Zoku. I'm sorry, but it's true. I needed a regular mold for several reasons. Most importantly, making boozy pops. I perused the many choices on Amazon and settled on the Norpro. It's simple, makes attractive pops and has disposable sticks. I am a bit overprotective of my Zoku sticks and I think my friends will appreciate the nag-free portability.

My first boozy batch is PEACH/RASPBERRY BELLINI. I went for the classic bellini (champagne and peach) and added a layer of puréed raspberry at the bottom for a tart (and pretty) punch. The mold made 10 perfect pops in just a few hours. You'll notice my rookie mistake in the photo. I pushed the sticks too far into the pop, making the pop stout and difficult to grasp. Oh well, now I know.

What should my next boozy batch be?

  1. While I'm scandalized by your infidelity, I am glad that you can now produce competitors for your watermelon margarita pops.
