Below are some recipes you have to try:
Lemonade Moonshine Popsicles
Lemonade is one of the go-to drinks when trying to get through the summer heat. It’s very refreshing when served chilled, but do you know what’s better? When it’s served frozen. It gets even better when it’s got a bit of alcohol in it. So, how is it prepared?
- ¼ cup granulated sugar
- ¼ cup water
- Zest of 1 large lemon
- ¼ cup freshly squeezed lemon juice
- 2 tbsp. moonshine
- ¾ cup cool water
- First off, you will need to prepare the simple syrup. In a small saucepan, combine the granulated sugar, water, and lemon zest.
- Bring the concoction to a simmer. Stir until the sugar is dissolved. Remove from the heat and let it cool down.
- Mix the simple sauce with the lemon juice, moonshine, and cool water. Pour into popsicle molds and freeze.
Tropical Tequila Sunrise Pops
There’s something about yellow beverages—they’re usually incredibly refreshing. This one is, too. It’s perfect for the summer season and on the beach.
- 2 cups pineapple juice
- 1 lb fresh pineapple, peeled and pureed
- ¾ cup tequila
- ¼ cup grenadine
- Combine the pineapple juice, pureed pineapple, and the tequila, and stir.
- Fill ¾ of the popsicle wells with the pineapple mixture.
- Pour 1 teaspoon of grenadine into each popsicle well, then freeze.
Bourbon Butterscotch Latte Pops
Bourbon is a delight to the taste, and so is butterscotch—and so is coffee. Now, some individually good tastes don’t go with other flavors, but not this one. Just when you thought coffee and bourbon whiskey couldn’t get any better, this bad boy comes along.
- 16 oz. strong coffee at room temperature
- 4 oz. heavy cream
- 4 oz. bourbon
- 2 oz. butterscotch sauce
- Combine all the ingredients in a blender and mix, then pour into popsicle molds then freeze.
Coconut-Mango White Rum Pops
Coconuts and mangoes are both staples of a tropical setting. They taste great and can cool the body pretty nicely too. Put them together, and you will come up with something on a completely different level—how about a creamy popsicle with profiles of sweetness, and a hint of rum? Rum, yum!
- ⅔ cup white rum
- 1 ⅔ cups coconut milk
- 3 tbsp. sugar
- 1 ½ mangoes
- Peel mangoes and cut away from the seed. Chop into large bite-sized pieces.
- Combine the rum and sugar in a mixing bowl, and mix until the sugar dissolves.
- Pour in the coconut milk, and whisk until well-combined. Add the mangoes while pouring. Pour the mixture into popsicle molds with a ladle and freeze.
Watermelon Margarita Pops
Watermelon is one of the most delicious fruits there is. It’s sweet, easy to eat, and does a pretty good job of rehydrating the body. Margaritas, on the other hand, are one of the most refreshing kinds of cocktails you can find. When you combine them and convert them into a subzero form, get ready for unprecedented levels of refreshment.
