Turn leftover champagne into delicious and refreshing mimosa popsicles! Perfect for summer parties or an after work treat during summer…
Whilst our Northern Hemisphere friends are freezing through the silly season, Australia is sweltering. So naturally we want every ice cold drink there is. And bulk ice-cream and icypoles. And we preferably like to enjoy these in the comfort of a pool and / or air conditioning. Summer – it gets us every time! We also seem to be incapable of talking about anything else but how damn hot it is! Cause it is just SO HOT!
This might help clarify why you’ve been seeing so many popsicle recipes from me lately! I’m just trying to get through summer, especially when my ovens always on and my house is a literal hot box! And after making my strawberry mango popsicles and strawberry banana popsicles recently, I decided I wanted to make a special popsicles just for us adults. More specifically – mimosa popsicles!
Considering that a standard glass of champagne is all that goes into 6 of these popsicles, consuming a couple of these popsicles would be classified as responsible drinking! And at this time of year, where Christmas and New Years and all the parties in between are happening, I’m going to hazard a guess you might have some leftover champagne in the fridge that would be perfect to make up a batch of these!
Just be sure to choose your orange juice wisely! Don’t go for the sugar filled rubbish and pick one that is as close to just plain juiced oranges! Here in Australia we have a brand called Nudie Juice who make a juice that’s just 10 & a half oranges (and that’s it). You could even make your own which would be even better.
As far as champagne goes – if you like the taste of it, use it! But if you don’t, it won’t taste better in these popsicles. I’ve tried and it did not go down well!
I’d love to know how you go making these, so make sure you are tagging @BeForeverHealthierBlog in your festive Instagram snaps!!
