Blood Orange Negroni Popsicles

Not far now until a well deserved long weekend in Sydney.  Therefore I thought I would share with you a simple but delicious recipe.  A very adult recipe, not one for the kids.

With the weather looking beautiful at the moment, and we Aussies heading towards the Summer months, a little something to cool you down.

These are the perfect addition to a lazy weekend barbeque.  Yes traditionally Negroni is an apéritif, but these are a nice mouth cleansing adult treat after lunch or dinner.  Or even enjoy them lazing by the pool.  These would also make the cutest canape if made as mini popsicles.

blood orange negroni popsiclesIf you haven’t tried a Negroni it is a slightly bitter cocktail.  Not a cute and fluffy cocktail by any means.  My pops are alcoholic.  If you wish to get rid of the alcohol then bring your sugar syrup to the boil with the alcohol added.  Do not add the orange juice until after this step and the pot is off the heat.  I believe that this will alter the taste of them though.

Do tell dear Belly  Rumbles’ reader, what is your favourite Summer time cocktail?

Also don’t forget to enter my little Japanese competition.  Have a great long weekend to those that get one this weekend.  If not, have a fabulous weekend anyway!

    Totally my type of pre-dinner cocktail! This recipe looks like it would make a great granita as well.

    I haven’t had a negroni in ages. I like the idea of alcoholic popsicles!

    Nothing screams out nostalgia more then having the popsicle drip down your hands and being in a sticky mess when you are done; I like that it’s made for grown up with the addition of negroni. Also loved what you did with your blood oranges :)

    I’m not a huge fan of Campari as it’s a tad too bitter for me, but with the amount of sugar you’ve added I may just like these!
