Horrors, y’all! I forgot to turn off my camera last night when I pulled the photos off of it, and when I went to make today’s pop, my camera was dead. So no photos in today’s post. You’re just going to have to use your imaginations.
Anyway, I made an amazing sangria today (this one). It was lovely and delicious and, well, I’m a cheap date these days. So I decided to make a nice, sedate ice pop tonight.
I used Mint Medley tea, sugar and a hefty splash of lemon juice. I’ve never actually made mint tea before, and I was startled to see it brew up red. I wasn’t sure about how much sugar to add — I needed enough to made the pop biteable, but not so much that it would taste horrible.
As the pop froze, the red color changed to a very pretty rosy pink. It looked nice, but there’s something odd about mint flavor in a pink pop.
Not that there was much mint flavor on display. Once frozen, this pop was all about the lemon. The first few bites were refreshing and pleasant, but it quickly wore thin. I didn’t finish it. Next time, I think I’ll brew the tea stronger and skip the lemon entirely.
