I feel like people around the country have been complaining about it being hotter than summer than previous summers.
You know, that really sucks.
I’m luckily in a place where it doesn’t get too terribly hot, but we don’t have AC so it still feels pretty awful some days. Especially when I’m cooking.
I always want something nice and cold on the hot days, something that will keep my body temperature down so that I’m not as miserable.
When I was a kid, the thing to do to keep cool was to eat a popsicle.
I remember popsicles every summer as a kid and a few as an adult too. The sweetness from the fruit or fruit-like substance in the popsicle was so refreshing after a hot day or a softball game. We frequently enjoyed them around the pool as well.
It was the perfect thing to cool us off and to keep our sugar high so that we could continue doing whatever mischievous thing that we were up to that day.
I wanted to emulate that feeling from when I was a child, but make it more adult.
What’s more adult than rosé and fresh fruit from the farmer’s market? I mean this by itself screams ‘I’m an adult.’
Let’s make it into something fun though, something that can make us feel mischievous like we were kids?
Let’s make this rosé into a popsicle, add in some fresh fruit, and call it a day. Or call it an end of the day.
What’s more awesome than a boozy popsicle?
Not much, that’s what I say.
It gives you a little buzz while you enjoy flavors that you normally wouldn’t have together.
I made two different kinds of boozy popsicles and they are so easy to make.
The first one that I made was a strawberry and blueberry rosé and the second was a peach and raspberry rosé.
They’re light, refreshing, and the hardest part about them is waiting 5 hours for them to freeze.
- 1 peach sliced
- A handful of raspberries
- 2 cups rosé
- 2 tbs honey
- Blend rosé, honey, and peach
- Put raspberries in the bottom of the popsicle mold
- Carefully pour in the rosé mixture, do not overfill, put the stick in
- Freeze for 5-12 hours
I have to cook for one of my families today and I have been so blah lately that I don’t know how I’m going to get through it.
I feel like I’m going to mess up their meals because my mood isn’t quite there right now.
What do you do when you get in a funk?
I know that the last time I got into a funk, I stopped blogging for a month, but I don’t want to do that again. I love blogging and it keeps my mind off of things.
I’m not sure how to relax when I have so much to do.
Speaking of so much to do, I’m waiting for my webcam to come in, but hopefully starting streaming sometime before July 18th.
I will be streaming Tuesday’s and Thursday’s at 5 pm to start off with, I might add one or two more days depending on how much I like doing this.
I have a feeling that I’m actually going to like it because it’s like cooking for friends and your friends are there to talk to you about it.
