Alcoholic Popsicle Recipes: How to Make Popsicle Margaritas, Cocktails, and More
Popsicles are a classic choice for kids in the summer. They make an easy and often nutritious dessert or snack. While there are many non-alcoholic Popsicles that people of any age can enjoy, there are a number of great alcoholic Popsicle recipes, too. The next time you are hosting a summer party for families or just adults, consider one of these recipes. Consider the occasion and the preferences of your guests. Mojitos Popsicles may be a perfect option for a bridal shower while beer Popsicles may be the best choice for a Fourth of July gathering. Whatever the occasion may be, enjoy!
No matter which recipe or recipes you choose to make, you will need the following supplies:
Blender. Either a regular blender or an immersion blender will work.
Molds/trays/glasses. There are a variety of options for Popsicle molds out there. They include, but are not limited to:
- Popsicle plastic molds. You can purchase these in the kitchen section of most big box stores and chain stores with kitchen sections (i.e. Kohl's, Bed Bath and Beyond). They come in various sizes and with various types of lids/sticks.
- Small glasses, such as shot glasses. A number of recipe authors used small glasses for molds, such as little shot glasses. If you already have these on hand, that's perfect. Otherwise, you should be able to pick up a small set without spending too much.
- Ice cube trays. In a pinch, ice cube trays are always an easy options. Additionally, if you want to serve smaller Popsicles, this is something to consider.
- Please note: Unless you are using molds that come with handles or sticks, make sure that you include sticks in your Popsicle mixtures before freezing them. Most people opt for craft sticks, which are available in the kid craft section of big box stores.
Ice. If you will be serving Popsicles at a party and not everyone is eating one right away, make sure to keep them in molds and on ice so that there is minimal melting.
As margaritas are one of the most popular alcoholic drinks out there, I'm sure it's not a surprise that the Popsicle versions are also one of the most popular choices. I found by far more strawberry recipes than anything else. Watermelon is another classic choice. Of course you can switch up the fruits any way you like. Scroll down for a honeydew cucumber margarita recipe from Endless Simmer, too.
There are a handful of recipes I found that contain multiple fruits and have carefully poured layers as pictured on the right. This is not necessary for a delicious Popsicle, but the extra effort will add a great aesthetic that will wow your guests. Also, please check out the sour cream, cherry, and tequila recipe. Can you get a much more amazing set of ingredients?
For those of you who enjoy mint, a mojito is always a great choice. Turning the drink into a Popsicle is about the only thing that could make it more appealing. This seems like an ideal choice for a bridal shower, bachelorette party, or other girly gathering.
