•This is a delicious and refreshing combination of flavors. Light hint of licorice and tart grapefruit all tied into one, and when you bite into a little bit of juicy pulp…yum!! This isn’t any ordinary popsicle and would be perfect for a summer baby shower or add some vodka and make them for a bridal shower. I used my old standby Tupperware popsicle kit and used craft sticks that I glued a couple jewels on to. You can use whatever mold you have or even use clean little yogurt containers with craft sticks and foil. I just love popsicles and eat them all year long. I’m not one bit embarrassed to admit that as I sit here writing this post and glance over at my side table that there is a pile of jewel encrusted craft sticks….yes I ate them all myself!
In a med sauce pan, add the water, tarragon, and sugar-whisk. Bring to a light bubble, and stir until the liquid turns clear-about 5 min. Remove pan from heat and set aside.
Using a vegetable peeler, peel 3 long strips from the grapefruit, making sure not to get the bitter white part.
Add the peel to the tarragon syrup and let steep for 1 hour.
Meanwhile juice the grapefruit. Don’t worry about the pulp, you can strain it out later. I kept some of it in for mine, I enjoy the juicy burst of flavor. Squeeze in the lime juice.
Place a fine colander or mesh sieve over a med bowl. Strain the tarragon syrup. Discard the tarragon and zest.
Pour the grapefruit and lime juice through the colander.
I added back in some of the pulp, your choice.
Mix together with a whisk and pour into the molds and let freeze for at least 4 hours♥Enjoy
To try and distribute the pulp, I didn’t add the sticks until after they were in the freezer for a hour and gave them a little stir before.
