Boozy Popsicles (aka Poptails) are all the rage this summer and we want to get on these asap. These’ll be the perfect 4th of July weekend treat!

// Mixed-Berry Pinot Pops

Ingredients:

  • 1/2 bottle Pinot Noir
  • 2 cups water
  • 2/3 cup sugar
  • 2/3 cup raspberries
  • 2/3 cup blackberries

In a large mixing bowl, combine water, wine and sugar. Stir until sugar is dissolved. Add berries, smashing some slightly with a wooden spoon and leaving some whole. Using a ladle, pour into popsicle molds (or just a paper cup!), making sure the berries are evenly distributed.

Note: If you’re using the paper-cup method, let the pops freeze for about an hour (until they’re slushy, but not totally frozen), then place the popsicle sticks in the center. Putting them in a partially frozen mixture will keep them stabilized. Don’t have popsicle sticks? Use spoons or plasticware. Done!

Ingredients:

Whisk together all ingredients in a large cup with a spout. Pour into pop molds. Let freeze undisturbed overnight. Carefully remove from molds & enjoy!

// French 75 Popsicles

Ingredients:

  • 12 oz. of champagne
  • 4 oz. of  gin
  • 4 oz. of simple syrup
  • 3 oz. of fresh lemon juice

Combine all ingredients together into a large measuring cup, then evenly distribute in your popsicle molds, leaving about 1/4 inch of room at the top. (You’ll have around 3 oz. left over after filling the molds.) After they’ve set for about an hour, put your sticks in. Allow to fully freeze then eat up!

// Mudslide Poptail

  • 18 oz. vanilla yogurt
  • 1 banana, medium size (2oz)
  • 3 oz. vodka
  • 3 oz. Kahlua
  • 3 oz. Bailey’s Irish Cream
  • 3 tablespoons grated chocolate

Place all ingredients in a blender or food processor and process until smooth, about 1-2 minutes.

Freeze for about 1 hour 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 5-7 seconds

Enjoy!
