Refreshing cucumber & lime dessert

Refreshing cucumber & lime dessert

Fantastic summer recipe, quick and easy to make!

1/2 cup of sugar
1/4 cup plus 1 tablespoon water

1/4 cup coarsely chopped mint leaves
2 teaspoons finely grated lime zest
1/4 cup fresh lime juice
1/4 cup of gin
one cucumber peeled seeded and pureed (1 and 1/4 cup)
1/2 teaspoon unflavored powdered gelatin

in a saucepan combine sugar, 1/4 cup water, mint and bring to boil. Cover, remove from the heat and let stand for 15 minutes. Strain the mint syrup in a large bowl and let cool to room temperature. Whisk in the lime juice, gin and cucumber puree.
Sprinkle the gelatin over the remaining tablespoon of water until softened, then microwave it for 8 seconds, until the gelatin dissolves. Whisk the gelatin in the cucumber mixture.
Arrange ten 2-ounces paper cups on a baking sheet. Pour the popsicle mixture into the cups and freeze for 1 hour, until partially frozen. Insert a stick in the center of each cup and freeze for 30 minutes longer, until fully frozen. Tear off the paper and serve.
You can freeze all kinds of cocktails on sticks for backyard parties. To prevent pop from melting too quickly, just add gelatin to the mixture.
