DIY: Strawberry Sake Ice Pops

Served
 

Summer is oh-so-hot right now…let’s cool down with some fun and super-chic strawberry sake ice pops! These are easy to make and make a wonderful dessert item for all your summer parties. Use chopsticks as your handles, and, voila, you have a unique treat that is sure to impress more than your taste buds.

 

INGREDIENTS (6 Pops)

8 Strawberries
3/4 Cup of Black Label Brand Sake (it has melon undertones, which pairs with the white grape juice)
1/2 Cup White Grape Juice
3 Tsp Lemon Juice
6 Chopsticks
Ice Pop Mold
Paper Straws
Plastic Cups

 

Ingredients

 
 

DIRECTIONS:

 

Step 1: Chop 6 out of the 8 strawberries into small pieces
Step 2: Cut the last two strawberries length wise to have some big slices that resemble the shape of a strawberry. This will make the pop look gourmet when it is frozen.
Step 3: Mix your sake, lemon juice and white grape juice together, and pour into the molds leaving about an inch of space at the top.
Step 4: Sprinkle in your strawberries. Tip- Place some of the big slices up against the sides of the molds so that when they are frozen you can clearly see them!
Step 5: Place chopsticks in the center of the ice pop molds and secure them in place with tape. Stick in the freezer for about 3 hours or until frozen.
Step 6: Serve frozen. I serve these strawberry sake ice pops in clear cups with cute paper straws so that they don’t melt all over, and you can drink up the liquid!
