Honeydew Cucumber Pop With Bubbly

Ingredients:

  • 1 cup honeydew juice (approximately a whole melon weighing 1lb)
  • 1/3 cup cucumber juice (approximately half a cucumber weighing 5oz.)
  • ½ cup tequila
  • 1 tablespoon triple sec
  • 1 tablespoon fresh lime juice
  • 1 tablespoon mint simple syrup (1/2 cup water, 1/2 cup sugar, 1 cup mint leaves)
  • 3 large mint sprigs
  • 1 bottle Prosecco

Directions:

  • Place the honeydew and cucumber in a food processor or a blender and process until everything is pureed. Add tequila, triple sec, lime juice and mint syrup and process for another 20-30 seconds to blend well. Pour mixture into pop molds. 
  • Freeze for about 2 hours or until mixture starts to solidify enough to hold a popsicle stick upright. Insert popsicle sticks and finish freezing popsicles overnight.
  • To release popsicles run hot water on the outside of popsicle molds for a 2-3 seconds.
  • Place pop in a glass and pour bubbly Prosecco over the pop. Enjoy!
