Paletas: Authentic Recipes for Mexican Ice Pops,
Shaved Ice and Agua Frescas,
by Fany
Gerson (Ten Speed Press)

Popsicles pushed cupcakes off the sweet treat throne this summer, thanks
in no small part to Gerson, the country's most authoritative voice on Mexican
sweets, who launched La Newyorkina, a Mexican frozen treats biz. Gerson's Paletas is the first collection of recipes in the U.S. to
tackle Mexican popsicles (paletas),
as well as fruit juices, and shaved ice (raspado) — and there isn't a single bad recipe in the bunch.
Best bets: the Sour Cream, Cherry and Tequila Ice Pops and Spicy Mango Ice.
