Paletas de Pepino y Uva

Over the weekend I  made a HUGE pitcher of agua de pepino.  With the all the hustle and bustle that comes from any great weekend the pitcher was slowly edged to the back of the fridge.  On Sunday evening while making dinner I reached into the fridge for cilantro and noticed the pitcher of agua.  A pitcher of agua go to waste in my kitchen, I think not.

I pulled out my paleta mold, diced a few grapes and made paletas.
