Very Boozy Hibiscus Popsicle
Are you familiar with this drink from Starbucks? If not, you should be as it's one of my favorite items to order off their menu when the temperatures reach unbearable. Recently Heritage Distilling Co. gifted me a few bottles of their flavored vodkas and upon pulling this hibiscus one out of the box, I knew exactly what I would be doing with it.
Heritage Distilling Co. is a small batch distillery located in Gig Harbor, Washington. If you read my southern brands post HERE, you know I love supporting and promoting the artisan brands. Heritage's list of flavored vodkas is quite extensive and they also offer up gin, whiskey and bourbon (be still my heart) on their roster.
Anyway! Back to the popsicles. These little guys are super refreshing and perfect for the insanely hot summer days Texas has been having lately.
Very Boozy Hibiscus Popsicles
- Popsicle mold
- Popsicle sticks (unless your mold comes with them already)
- 2 oz. Heritage Distilling Co. Hibiscus Vodka
- 1 oz. lemon juice
- 1 1/4 cup of sparkling berry water (I used La Croix)
- ~ 20 blackberries
Directions: Combine vodka, lemon juice and about 10 blackberries in a glass and muddle it all together. Once combined, pour in the sparkling berry water and give it a good stir. Use remaining blackberries to put into each individual popsicle mold, then pour the liquid mixture into each one. Place in the freezer for about one hour, then remove the mold from the freezer and add popsicle sticks. Place back in the freezer for at least 3 more hours. Enjoy!
