180 ml (3/4 cup) of water
60 g (1/2 cup) of granulated sugar
2 star anise
125 ml (1/2 cup) of Patience Fruit & Co pure organic cranberry juice
30 ml (2 tablespoons) of freshly squeezed lemon juice
60 ml (1/4 cup) of Aperol
Cooking time 5 minutes Portions 6 popsicles
A poptail is a cross between a popsicle and a cocktail. Our secret to making poptails even better is to dip them in prosecco between every bite!
This poptail is an homage to the traditional Aperol spritz, a cocktail widely consumed as an aperitif in many Italian cities. Our variation uses local ingredients, delightfully combining Canada’s cranberries and Aperol. Star anise also provides a delicious warmth to this festive and unique cocktail. You’ll love how elegant it looks and tastes!
In a small, heavy-bottomed saucepan, heat the water, sugar, star anise, and Patience Fruit & Co pure organic cranberry juice, and lemon juice until the sugar is completely melted. Remove from the heat and stir in the Aperol. Let cool for 15 minutes, then fish out the star anise.
Pour the mixture into popsicle molds. Add the sticks then freeze for 6 hours or overnight.
To serve, pour the Prosecco into Old Fashioned glasses. Dip a popsicle in and enjoy immediately.
