Watermelon for Adults!

So consider this 'Morning After' the Fourth of July recipe when you happen to have lots of leftover watermelon ...and maybe a headache! 

Spiked Watermelon Pops





Level:
Easy

Serves:
16 popsicles

Ingredients
1/2 (3 pounds) large watermelon, peeled and cut into 1-inch chunks
1/4 cup sugar
3/4 cup watermelon flavored 70 proof vodka (recommended: Smirnoff Twist of Watermelon)* see Cook's Note
1/2 cup chopped fresh mint leaves

Special equipment: 16 (1/4 cup) ice pop molds, 16 wooden pop sticks or wooden coffee stirrers at least
2-inches longer than the molds.

Directions
In a blender, combine the watermelon, sugar, and vodka. Blend until the mixture
is smooth. Add the mint and pulse once to combine. Pour the mixture into the pop molds. Insert the wooden
sticks all the way down the inside the molds. Freeze for at least 10 hours or preferably overnight.

To unfreeze the ice pops, insert the molds in hot water for 5 to 10 seconds. Serve immediately.

*Cook's Note: For nonalcoholic Watermelon Pops, substitute 3/4 cup orange juice for the vodka.
