Coolest finds in the fridge

Few weeks ago, holding tightly on the fence at the tip off of the boat and resisting fierce wind with a huge smile on my face, I realised the thing I adore with summer is actually cold. This is the only time when the cold feels good. My cold feet vata dosha constantly demands warmth, and cold food outside summer feels like eating rocks. But in extreme heat of summer – oh, the soothing feeling of a cold bite sliding down the throat.

Bet you are searching for some recipes to be prepared straight from the fridge in the hot summer. Here is one tipsy adult popsicle recipe, featured in the latest edition of Mrvica magazine. These are best stocked up in the fridge for spontaneous drop by. Forget gin on rocks with slice of cucumber, lick it off the stick and you won’t even notice you got yourself drunk.

White currant & Cucumber Gin popsicles

  • 350g fresh white currants
  • ½ cup sugar
  • Juice of half a lemon
  • 1 cup gin
  • ½l  water
  • 1 sliced lemon
  • 1 sliced cucumber

The number of popsicles depends on your molds. I didn’t have any so I used plastic champagne glasses which worked great, and resulted in 8 popsicles. Simmer the the white currants and sugar with about ½ a cup of water for 8-10 mins. Leave to cool. Strain, and push pulp through sieve to remove seeds. Add the lemon juice, gin and water. Pour in popsicle model, insert cucumber and lemon slices and freeze for at least 5 hours.

  1. The good thing is they are ready in a snap, and if you replace white currant syrup with some ready made syrup you have at hand (elderflower or mint) you can prepare them completely hot stove free.

    • They are growing around my mothers house and here in mediteranean they are very common. You can try with any other berry, it’s included here for the juicines and a little sour hint to the popsicle.
