Then, I see THIS:
THAT IS MY RECIPE. MY RECIPE IS ON BUZZFEED.* And it actually links to my blog, not some recipe-share site. Woo hoo!
I've joked with fellow bloggers that I "Haven't Made It Until I've Been Mentioned on a Buzzfeed Article" so... does this mean I've "made it"? Eh, I guess I'm skeptical, but it's still pretty damn cool!
Watermelon Strawberry Poptail Coolers
(Note: these are small popsicle molds, use more or less if you have bigger or smaller molds, taste frequently!)
- 1/2 bottle watermelon malt beverage (I used HEB Hibiscus Watermelon Tregos Frescos, but use whatever you can find that is similar!)
- 4 large strawberries, pureed with a pinch of sugar
- 1 tbs strawberry vodka
- 1/4 cup lemonade
-Pour carefully into pop molds, freeze overnight or until solid.
-Remove carefully by rolling molds in your hands and gently pinching until popsicle is easily removed.
*Fellow bloggers have asked if Buzzfeed asked permission to use my photos. The short answer, is no. However, they did the universally ok'd practice of "One Photo with Link to Recipe" which I much prefer to posting the entire recipe verbatim or using a ton of pictures. Had they not done this, I'd be a little angry that they didn't ask my permission. BUT I'm going to give them the benefit of the doubt that they had the best of intentions (as I would with anyone who simply shares a picture and a link to my blog), and getting on a Buzzfeed list has been somewhat of a rite of passage for food blogs, so s'all good with me.
