FTW: Grownup Popsicles With Campari


Campari Citrus Popsicles

Every once in awhile, we randomly stumble upon fine beverage discoveries too epic to ignore. We call these moments “FTW” (For The Win) and feel the need to share them with the world.

We can’t take credit for creating the recipe, but we wanted to share a recipe for boozy Popsicles that has gotten us all giddy like school children on summer break at a pool party.

The recipe comes from Liz Vidyarthi of The Kitchn, a website dedicated to inspiring cooks and nourishing homes. Her secret ingredient is Campari. The recipe demands for only four ingredients and a couple of kiddie Popsicle molds easily found in a 99 cent store. The recipe will make 10-15, depending on the size.

Campari Citrus Grapefruit Popsicles

1 cup sugar
1 cup water
3 cups grapefruit juice
1/2 cup Campari

Campari Citrus Orange Popsicles

1 cup sugar
1 cup water
3 cups orange juice
1/2 lemon, juiced
1/2 cup Campari

Mix the water and sugar together in a small pan over a low heat, and bring up to boil until the sugar dissolves. Allow the simple syrup to boil for 4 minutes, remove from heat and cool (makes a little over 1 cup).

Combine the citrus juice and Campari and add 1 cup of the cooled syrup. Adjust to taste: for the grapefruit pops, you may want to add a tablespoon or two extra syrup if you prefer them less tart. Remember, the mixture will taste slightly sweeter in liquid form than it does when frozen.

Pour into Popsicle molds and freeze at least 8 hours or overnight. To remove, run the molds quickly under hot water, and gently pull out the pops.
