Absinthe ice lolly: a slip 'n' slide for the hot and bothered mind

From Wikimedia Commons. "Green ice pop" by dumbfoundling, a flickr user
For those of you tired of being too hot, here's something that will help: an absinthe ice lolly. (Or 'pop' as people here seem to say. Why? I've no idea.) Basically, you make a punch from absinthe, fresh lime, simple syrup, and water. If you make it in a punchbowl with ice and slice some cucumber into it, then, cool, there's your punch. Though I loathe cucumber so would use melon or something similar instead. (I'm open to suggestions.)

Alcohol has a lower freezing point than water, so many punches don't translate well to popsicles and lollies. This one does. But you'll need the exact proportions. So go get the recipe (from Anne-Louise Marquis) from Gizmodo. And have a blast.
