Petite pops



Any pretty  party I throw, includes one of these little extras : a cool  bite or as I like to call them, petite pops! 

I typically serve them as palate cleansers between courses. A nugget of something sweet prepares your

taste buds for the real  dessert.




This party go-around features a tangy frozen tidbit of pink grapefruit juice and prosecco.

 The pink grapefruit juice is freshly





squeezed and then paired with effervescent prosecco and  fresh thyme  simple syrup.



 It’s quite the lip-puckering  combo. And what I love  about this sweet treat is that it has to be done the day ahead.

When making my palate cleansers, these are my tools of choice. A plastic organizer tray and simple wooden picks.




As the citrusy  mixture begins to set up  in the ice box, I pop in the picks.

Once the cool treats are frozen solid, I then slip them into darling little bags and

pop them back in the ice box until I’m ready to serve.




Oh, one more thing…add a small sprig of fresh thyme to each pop for added pretty & flavor!




Here’s the recipe on my printable  recipe cards!
