Now that the sun is finally shining (and it’s beginning to feel like spring), it’s the perfect thyme to mix up a cool, refreshing cocktail that’s full of flavor! Shaker & Spoon’s Rum Smash combines tart lemon, sweet house-made cinnamon syrup, and Angostura bitters. I wanted to find a treat that embodied a similar flavor profile with warm weather vibes. Popsicles are not only easy to prepare, but you can even use mini ones to garnish your drinks in place of the ice! I found a Thyme Lemonade recipe by Martha Stewart and modified it to make sure it would properly freeze. Now prepare to sit back, relax, and chill out with this cool combination.
Thyme Lemonade Popsicles
Prep: 10 min Inactive: 1 hour Yield: 6*
- 1/4 cup + 4 tbsp granulated sugar (if you like your lemonade more on the sweet side, I suggest you add a few tbsp more)
- 1 small bunch fresh thyme (plus small sprigs for garnish)
- 1 3/4 cups cold water
- 1/2 cup fresh lemon juice (juice from about 3 lemons)
- popsicle mold (I used Zokupops Classic Mold)
- In a medium-sized saucepan, bring the sugar, thyme, and 1 cup of water to a boil. Stir until the sugar is dissolved (about 2 minutes).
- Stir in the lemon juice and 3/4 cup of water.
- Strain into a large pitcher and refrigerate until cool (about an hour).
- Carefully pour into popsicle mold (you can also add the additional loose sprigs for garnish at this point) and freeze for at least 7 hours or overnight. Enjoy!
*Yield may vary depending on the mold.
