Am a sucker for popsicles, especially if it is home-made.  Even in the bitter cold winter months I enjoy my popsicles. I have tried so many varieties, it’s strange that I have such few recipes on the blog.

This recipe was developed because I had a huge bottle of apple juice that was going to be expired. I added some candied ginger, ginger juice, infused some sage flavor and I think this is one of the most aromatic popsicles that we (teen & me) have ever made. The drink itself looked gorgeous and we had a few glasses and finally froze the rest. You can serve this as a summer mocktail or freeze it, both ways  it ammmmazing. Add a shot of tequila and you got a boozy popsicles for adults.

While we were at it made another one that is grapefruit n sage (no ginger). The color is so gorgeous, summer personified.

Before I forget, I was planning to take time off , I need to postpone that to the month of July so for next few weeks am not going anywhere.
