over 4th if July weekend we went through an entire bag of otter pops. Not only because it is hot AF, but well, ice pops!
Popsicle’s are some of my favorite summer time treats and they are SO easy to make at home.
I love adding a little alcohol to these treats to make an adult boozy dessert.
Recently Brenne sent me a bottle of their single malt whisky and it was AMAZING.
“Crafted from locally indigenous heirloom barley farmed on-site, and proofed using water from the Charente river, Brenne is a 100% organic uniquely seed-to-spirit whisky.”
Brenne is the world’s first single malt aged exclusively in both new French Limousin Oak barrels and Cognac casks.
Founded by former ballerina turned whisky entrepreneur, Allison Parc, Brenne was started with Allison’s small life savings and a big dream to show terroir (a sense of place in the smell and taste) is possible when making great single malt whisky. She created Brenne from seed to spirit, with a third-generation Cognac maker at this family farm-distillery in the heart of Cognac, France. First released in New York City in 2012, the award-winning whisky embodies the elegant nature of its French terroir and brings a completely new style of French single malt whisky to the rapidly emerging world whisky segment.”
There is nothing like a bad ass woman making whisky!
I got a lot of banana flavor from Brenne and it tastes super warm like baking spices. I’ve never had a whisky like that before. V easy to drink.
One of Justin’s favorite drinks to order at the bar is a Manhattan, so I thought it would be fun to make Manhattan flavored Popsicle! This whisky paired perfect with my Manhattan ingredients of choice; cherry, bitters and a little orange!
I only used 3ozs of Brenne to make these pops which give it the just right amount of booziness. If you like it stronger, simply add more whisky or dip the popsicle in a glass of of it!
