These Boozy Summer Ice Pops Are For Adults Only

Ice pops are a great summery treat, made even better with the addition of your favorite spirit. Whether you take them to the beach or enjoy them from the comfort of your air-conditioned living room, keep in mind these tips while preparing your ice pops:

  • Keep the ratio of your ice pop mixture to about 4:1, mixer to booze. Liquor doesn't freeze well, so this helps speed up the freezing process. If you need some inspiration for mixers, try your favorite fruit juice, lemonade, or even soda!
  • The alcohol's freezing point also makes spiked pops softer than normal, so keep them in the freezer until ready to eat.
  • You can easily find disposable ice pop tubes online, or freezer pop molds for a more reusable option.
  • If you're using a popsicle mold, let your popsicles sit in the freezer for one hour before placing the wooden stick handles, that way they stay upright.
  • The amount of time it takes the pops to freeze depends on the recipe and spirit used, so it's best to prepare your pops a day before you plan on eating them!

Follow these recipe steps to create a delicious vodka-infused treat of your own!
