Earl Grey Lemon Popsicles

Earl Grey Lemon Popsicles

Sometimes, the best are the easiest to make. If you love lemonade, you will love this recipe too. Lemon Popsicles are simple, refreshing, and flavourful and require only 3 ingredients.

Ingredients for making Earl Grey Lemon Popsicles

There's no brewing required for this recipe. Instead, we used an Earl Grey sugar syrup – the best ingredient you could possibly have in your fridge during summer. Fresh lemon and water are the other two. Think of it as a frozen Earl Grey lemonade and you'll get the idea. You will also need popsicle moulds, which are nowadays available everywhere. They all come with a popsicle stick, but you can replace it with a wooden one.  

How to Make Earl Grey

We recommend making Earl Grey tea syrup a day in advance. You can store it in the fridge for a couple of weeks and use whenever you want. Earl Grey tea syrup is very easy to make. You will need a strong and fragrant Earl Grey tea and white granulated sugar. This Earl Grey simple syrup recipe makes 20 tablespoons of syrup, which would be enough to make up to 20 Earl Grey Lemon popsicles.

Can you replace Earl Grey syrup with some other tea syrup?

Absolutely. However, choose blends that have a citrusy note. Earl Grey is scented with bergamot (Citrus bergamia), a type or orange originating from Italy. These oranges look similar to lemons and are not typically used as regular oranges. Instead, they are famous for its essential oil. Bergamot oil is derived from the peel, and it's been used for scenting Earl Grey tea for 200 years. Earl Grey without bergamot would not be an Earl Grey.

Lemon flavoured black tea would be a great alternative to Earl Grey. However, they won't taste the same.

Can you add more syrup and lemon?

Yes, but don't add less. Use at least 1 tablespoon of syrup per popsicle or more. Simple syrups are very sweet as they are basically only sugar melted in water. We found that 1 lemon is just enough for a good balance.

How to add popsicle stick to watery popsicles

Watery popsicles have a different texture than creamy popsicles. Unless you are using popsicle stick that was originally included with your popsicle mould, you won't be able to attach a wooden stick immediately. Let them freeze for about 30 minutes before inserting a popsicle stick and freeze for an additional 5-6 hours.

How to store Earl Grey lemon popsicles?

Fully frozen, it's best to keep them in their original mould. You can use one zip-lock bag and place for all of them and store for several weeks. They will keep longer, but if you want to enjoy the best possible fresh flavour, use them within a couple of weeks. We bet you won't be able to resist them for that long, though.
