Popsicles and slurpees

Last night I mentioned that I was working on a delish mango-lime ice cream recipe and said I’d post it tonight… Sadly, that’s not happening because I just wasn’t happy with the outcome – so it’s back to the drawing board on that one, but I can tell you I’m excited about the consolation prize – fantastic mango-lime-orange popsicles which are sitting in the freezer right now chilling out.  Stay tuned for the recipe and pics tomorrow night.  In the mean time… have you seen this?


Introducing the lemon, lime and bitters slurpee

Um really – a lemon, lime and bitters slurpee?  Well it sure challenges the traditional raspberry and coke varietals and I’d suggest it even trumps the blue lemonade version that leaves one with brain freeze and a blue tongue.  And I guess if you think about it, lemon, lime and bitters is a fairly refreshing drink, so perhaps it makes sense in slurpee format?

I went in search of some info on the 7 Eleven website and had to giggle when reading the answer to the question: so how do you make a lemon or lime bitter?  Here’s what the site says:

“Well we have many different methods. We sometimes tell them that they have to work over the Christmas break. Other times we eat their lunch in the fridge. And then if we want to make them really, really bitter we date their sister. The result is a deliciously cold, decidedly tart citrus Slurpee. Even though it’s bitter, one sip and you’ll feel very refreshed.”

Anyhoo, I’m going to see if I can track one down and give it a whirl.  Will report back on this topic – but it won’t be tomorrow – that’s reserved for the TOPS popsicles post. 🙂

Ciao for now!
