Prosecco-Rose Petal Ices November 14 2016, 0 Comments

Delicious Ice Pops. Great for any gathering. A cold treat, delicious even in the cold months! The following recipe makes 6 ice pops.

Ingredients

1 cup white grape juice

1 cup cold, flat Prosecco

1/3 cup Rose Water

1 1/2 tsp freshly squeezed lemon juice

About 30 red rosebud petals, rinsed

 

Directions

In a large bowl, stir together the grape juice, Prosecco, rose water, and lemon juice.

Fill ice pop moulds about 1/3 full.

Drop two or three rose petals into each mould and freeze until set, about 30 minutes.

Fill the moulds another third of the way full and drop 2 or three more rose petals into each mould.

Insert sticks.

Freeze until set, about 30 minutes.

Fill all the way with the remaining Prosecco mixture and drop two or three more rose petals into each mould.

Freeze until set, at least 8 hours or up to 1 week.

3. To unmould the ices, run hot water over the outsides of the moulds for a few seconds, then gently pull the sticks.

Note: You will need to let the Prosecco get flat in the refrigerator prior to making the ices. If you are in a hurry, decant it into a large bowl, and it will turn flat faster. Be sure to use food-safe rose petals that haven't been sprayed with pesticide.
