This vibrant frozen pop recipe is inspired by a shrub—a beverage made from fruit steeped in vinegar that, though trendy now, actually hails from the 17th century. A splash of cider vinegar lends the distinctive shrub tang, while still letting the citrusy fruitiness come through.

  1. Combine blueberries, honey, vinegar and lemon zest in a 2-quart or larger microwave-safe bowl. Cover with plastic wrap and poke a few holes in the top. Microwave on High for 2 minutes. Stir, then microwave, covered, on High for 1 minute more. Uncover and let cool for 10 minutes.
  2. Strain and press the mixture through a fine-mesh sieve into a bowl, then transfer to a 4-cup measuring cup. Stir in enough lemonade to yield 2¼ cups.
  3. Freeze in six 3-ounce (or similar-size) pop molds until solid, about 6 hours. To unmold, dip the forms into warm water for 10 to 20 seconds. If necessary, use a table knife to break the vacuum and pry the pops loose.
  • Make Ahead Tip: Freeze for up to 1 month.
