When was the last time you threw a really nice, really intimate dinner party?
I’m talking about:
a.) No kids
b.) 6 guests tops (8 in all, including you and your S.O.)
c.) A nicely set table (candles, cloth napkins, music, etc.) and fantastic food (of course)
Why, you ask?
Because Mama came up with a delicious recipe that I’m just dying for you to make and serve at your soirée: An Iced Watermelon Basil Palate Cleanser.
A… palate… what?
A palate cleanser, silly. You know, one of those fancy-do things the French serve in between courses during a meal… like sorbet. A palate cleanser helps remove any lingering flavors in the mouth, so the next course can be better appreciated.
Okay, okay. You don’t HAVE to have a dinner party to whip up these savory Watermelon & Basil Ice Pops (if you’re not going to play into my highfalutin entertaining fantasy, lets just call the recipe what it really is… a savory popsicle.).
And if you add a splash of vodka, you’ve got a great pre-dinner party POPTAIL!
*The good folks at Dexas sent me the 100% Silicone Cube Ice Tray Packet that I used to make the pops. One packet comes with two dishwasher-safe trays that make 18 pops, perfect for this recipe. Because the trays are silicone, whatever you freeze easily pops out. And, as you can see (below the recipe), like a lot of the cool kitchen stuff from Dexas, the trays come in some fabuloso colors and you can order them online!
