“As a bartender with a lime popsicle tattoo, it was only a matter of time until I combined my two loves: cocktails and popsicles into one delicious treat!”
– Laila Grainawi
  • 12.00 oz vodka
  • 6.00 oz lemon juice
  • 4.00 oz basil syrup
  • 1 tsp grated lemon zest
  • 8.00 oz elderflower tonic
  • 2.00 oz water

Bar Tools: knife, large container, grater, small funnel
Glass: freezer tubes

Each box includes all ingredients including garnish. Bar tools and glassware not included but can be ordered separately.

All orders for alcohol are fulfilled by Keystone Wine and Spirits, LLC.

  1. Grate one lemon into a cup and set aside for step 3.
  2. Cut 6 lemons (including the grated one) in half crosswise, then squeeze the 12 halves of lemon into a cup and set aside for step 3 (note: 1 lemon will yield approximately 1.00 oz fresh lemon juice – you will need 6.00 oz for your batch).
  3. Measure and add all ingredients to a large container and whisk to incorporate the ingredients and flatten the tonic (note: freezing carbonated drinks makes air holes so it’s better to get as many out as possible.)
  4. Open a freezer tube and place it upright in a tall glass.
  5. Fill the tube with 3.00 oz of your cocktail batch with the help of a small funnel.
  6. Make sure there is 1 inch of space between the liquid and the zipper in order to give the cocktail enough room to expand when it freezes.
  7. Gently let excess air out, then close the zipper.
  8. Repeat Steps 3 through 6 for all 10 tubes.
  9. Store tubes in freezer for a minimum of 8 hours (note: freezing the tubes upright will help with any leakage issues).
  10. Once frozen you may use the tear tab for easy access, or you can open the top at the zipper so that you can wash and reuse your tubes!
  11. Cheers!

Potential, but recipe was off

I found this recipe to be disappointing. While it seemed to have potential from the flavor, it felt like the proportions were not correct and it was far more tart than a properly balanced cocktail (or ice pop!) should have been. I couldn’t even finish one.

The other issue was the alcohol content was too high for what it was trying to be, which is a frozen ice pop. The alcohol was by no means overpowering if it was a cocktail, but the proportion of alcohol was too high for it to properly freeze. After freezing for two days, it still wound up more of a slush consistency than ice pop, even when I knocked down the freezer temp as low as it would go, and put the pops next to the cold air supply.

Perfectly tart!

I agree with other reviews that these were tart, but I found that made them more refreshing. While I wouldn’t make these all the time, it was definitely fun to enjoy an adult popsicle on a hot day!

Great Idea

These are a little tart…if I made again I would do less lemon, or maybe some Lime Juice. Awesome Idea and turned out just as described.
