It’s your Social Cinderella here, and I’m sharing a big secret…

I’m the mastermind (and mermaid) behind the Mermaid with a Martini blog! And I’ve got a Memorial Day doozy for you—make that boozy—it’s Boozy Popsicles! Perfect for fun in the sun 🕶👙

Try this refreshing and surprising recipe that comes out perfectly pink!

Rosé and Lavender Popsicle
Bottle of Rosé
⅔ cup Lavender & Lemon Simple Syrup
½ cup Water (I know, I know!)
Fresh Fruit (Strawberries, Blueberries, Raspberries, etc.)

It’s too good to be true, right? But it’s not! I made these with just four ingredients. Combine the rosé, simple syrup and water. Can you believe I added water to a cocktail? I can’t either, BUT it freezes better and stays frozen longer in the sun with water. I made a set without (of course) and it was quickly a mess, so we must. (Grumble, grumble.) Pour into molds leaving room at the top for fresh fruit of your choosing. Place in freezer and wait. (This is the hardest part ☺)

Want to step up the buzz? Try vodka or gin in your frozen treat!

Add 1½ cup vodka to this recipe and replace the Lavender & Lemon Syrup with Simple Syrup to create another yummy treat with a little more punch. And I bet you can talk dad into getting involved by adding gin 😉 I replaced the bottle of rosé with prosecco added 1½ cups gin, ⅔ cup simple syrup, water and fresh lime juice in the one below.

There’s more to come from this mermaiden in the sun so stay tuned for more of our “happiest” hour in Cinderly. (There’s rumors the Fairy Boss Mother will be interviewing me for her new Mermaid Podcast! The buzz is all around the Cinderly Kingdom!)
