Take a trip down memoray lane with these layered pops

MAKES 12

INGREDIENTS
1 cup sugar
1 cup water
2 tbsp light corn syrup
2 cups pomegranate juice
3 cups lemonade
1 cup orange juice
Food colouring (natural food colouring is available at some health food stores)
Paper cups
Wooden lolly sticks

METHOD
1 In a medium saucepan, heat the sugar and water over a medium heat. Bring to the boil and stir until the sugar has dissolved. Remove from the heat and stir in the corn syrup. Set aside to cool
2 Once cooled, create your rainbow layers.
3 For red, combine 1 cup pomegranate juice, 2 tablespoons of the syrup and 2 drops of red food colouring.
4 For orange, combine 1 cup orange juice, 2 tablespoons of the syrup and 1 drop red and 1 drop yellow food colouring.
5 For yellow, combine 1 cup lemonade, 2 tablespoons of the syrup, and 1 to 2 drops of yellow food colouring.
6 For green, combine 1 cup lemonade, 2 tablespoons of the syrup, and 1 to 2 drops of green food colouring.
7 For blue, combine 1 cup lemonade, 2 tablespoons of the syrup, and 1 to 2 drops of blue food colouring.
8 For purple, combine 1 cup pomegranate juice, 2 tablespoons of the syrup, 2 drops blue and 1 drop red food colouring.
9 Pour the red layer into your paper cups, to about ½ cm deep and freeze for 30 minutes.
10 Add the orange layer, in the same way, and freeze for another 30 minutes. Place the sticks in the centre (the two layers should hold them pretty well), pour in the yellow layer, and freeze for another 30 minutes.
11 Repeat with the green, blue, and purple layers. Allow the ice lollies to freeze for 3 hours, or for best results, allow them to freeze overnight.
