Too damn hot

It’s too hot here – if you’re in the US there’s a good chance it’s too hot where you are too.

The amounts are going to vary widely depending on the size of the glasses/containers* you’re using. Mix everything up so it tastes good, but you want it a little strong. The flavors are more mellow once it’s frozen.

Put the basil in the glasses. Mix the sugar, water, and juice. Pour in the glass. Add some kind of a stick. Freeze.

I pulled them out when they were half frozen to mix the minced leaves down into the half-frozen ice better. This way the sticks stood straight up as well. But you could just let them freeze with slanty-sticks. Anyone who judges your slanty popsicle handles clearly doesn’t deserve a frozen treat.

* They make popsicle molds, but I don’t own any. I just made sure the glasses were wider at the top than at the bottom. Otherwise I wouldn’t be able to get them out.

  1. Ooo your flavor is fancier then mine- I just mixed a pint of raspberries (from the back yard) with lemonaide, its lazy but good. I’m going try your way next!

  2. Haha. Love it! I am going to dig out my old popsicle molds and make some. I always just froze OJ for the kids.

  3. Oooh, those look good! And I think the basil outside is getting big enough I can actually pick leaves off it now…
