Cherry Apple Whiskey Sour Popsicle

Cherry Apple Whiskey Sour Popsicle 
3 cups cherries
1 large green apple
1 lime
1 cup whiskey
½ cup of sweet and sour mix (homemade recipe follows)
Pit cherries; set aside. Peel away apple and lime skin and cut fruit into quarters.
Place all ingredients in a food processor or blender and process until mixture is pureed. Mixture will be thick.
Pour mixture into popsicle forms and freeze for about 2 hours or until mixture starts to solidify enough to hold a popsicle stick upright. 
Insert popsicle sticks and finish freezing popsicles overnight. 
To release popsicles run hot water on the outside of popsicle molds for a 2-3 seconds.
Sweet and Sour Mix
1/2 cup water
1/2 cup sugar
1 cup lemon juice
Place sugar and water in a sauce pan and heat until sugar dissolves. Add lemon juice and stir to combine. 
Set aside to cool before using.
