Hi Everyone! I am Liz, coming over from The Fresh Plate . I am so happy to be a guest blogger today! I am a married mom of three boys , and they love to eat! I am a food writer, blogger and small business owner. It is August, and back to school time is upon us once again. I wanted to share a sweet treat with you today that my kids ( and the neighborhood kids) love. Who doesn't love Shirley Temples? These are in popsicle form and are oh so good. I hope you enjoy!
Shirley Temple Popsicles
2 cups Sprite or 7-Up soda
scant 1/2 cup fresh orange juice ( it took about 3 medium oranges to get the juice I needed)
grenadine ( I find this in the aisle with the margarita mix, etc)
In a large mixing cup,combine the soda and the orange juice .Set aside.
Fill popsicle molds with marachino cherries . (Mine were smaller molds, so I used 3 cherries in each mold)
Add about a teaspoon of grenadine to each mold.( you could use the cherry juice in the bottle of cherries, if there is enough, in place of the grenadine)
Add the soda/oj mixture to each mold, about 2/3 full. Don't fill to the to the top of the molds. It will expand after freezing .
Place tops on popsicle molds and freeze.
