I refuse to admit to myself that summer is ending.
It's difficult each year, but usually I become too bored to stay home any longer.
Unfortunately, summer 2012 hasn't bored me, yet.
As the tan fades, and September approaches, I just have to be honest with myself; it's been a good break.
There really isn't anything else I can do but sit back, (maybe in a hammock), put my feet up, and have a popsicle.
Raspberry Limoncello Popsicles
(makes 4 medium-large popsicles)
adapted from Everyday Food
1/2 pound fresh raspberries
3 oz. simple syrup
1 oz. plus 1 tablespoon limoncello
2 tablespoons lime juice
In a medium bowl, mash the raspberries. Add the simple syrup, limoncello, and lime juice to mashed berries. Stir until well combined. Pour into popsicle molds and freeze at least 4 hours, or until completely frozen.
