An Elevated Take on a Favorite Treat

By: Stella Blackmon, Clementine Daily

Let Caldrea’s Ginger Pomelo fragrance, an energizing blend of citrus, ginger and basil, refresh a nostalgic treat for sun-drenched afternoons. As the warmer months move in, cool down with an inspired combination of tart lemonade and spicy ginger tea in popsicle form. The not too sweet mixture elevates the youthful snack into a sophisticated pick-me-up. The aromatic preparation process will also serve as a temporary home freshener, brightening the indoors with the bold scent of steeping ginger. Enjoy the finished frozen pops stretched out in the shining daylight, or serve as an unexpected hors d'oeuvre at a garden party.

Ingredients
Makes 6 popsicles

  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1 cup fresh lemon juice (from about 6 lemons)
  • 6 cups water
  • 3 bags ginger tea
  1. Combine the sugar and 3 cups of water in a large saucepan. Stirring occasionally, heat until the sugar is dissolved. Remove from heat and add lemon juice. Let cool.
  2. Bring 3 cups of water to a boil and brew three bags of ginger tea per its instructions. Let it cool.
  3. Add the brewed ginger tea to the lemonade and stir well. Divide mixture into popsicle molds. Insert popsicle sticks and freeze until solid, at least 6 hours or overnight. When ready to serve, run under hot water for 15 seconds to loosen the popsicle from the mold.
