With the sweltering heat already present, we all crave for something to freshen us up. Remember all those happy times when you were running around as a kid with the fresh cold icy popsicles bought from your local ice-cream man? Now you can make some by yourself. But, the popsicles get better once you are a grown-up. The popsicles are still mouth-watering, but you add just a bit of booze to them. The summer cannot get any better, can it?
Cocktails Go Boozy Popsicles
All cocktail lovers will become ecstatic this summer, as now they can virtually turn any of the cocktails they love into their favourite frozen treat. You will only need a couple of hours. Alcohol-based popsicles are all the rage nowadays, so check out some of the best ones which are also easy to make.
Check Out Watermelon Lime Tequila Pops
If you love tequila, this is just the right popsicle for you. You will need ¼ cup of water and the same amount of sugar, cubed watermelon – 4 cups, 2 juiced limes and a teaspoon of lime zest. Of course, you will need some tequila, so go for a half of a cup of it. Get a small saucepan and pour some water, and add sugar. Let it boil and then cool for half an hour. Use blender for mixing watermelon, lime juice and lime zest. Then, just stir in the sugar mixture, add tequila and stir again. Get some popsicle moulds and pour the mixture. Let it freeze for at least 12 hours.
Discover Orange Mojito Popsicles
Mojito turns into popsicle this summer. Get a cup of orange juice, 2 tablespoons of lemon juice and an equal amount of lime juice, a cup of water, 4 teaspoons of sugar, 12 mint leaves and tablespoons of rum. Chop those mint leaves into small pieces. Then, combine all the ingredients and put them into your blender. Once they are done, pour the mixture into popsicle moulds and freeze for 18 hours.
Try Red Wine Popsicles
Now you can go around the down enjoying your favourite red wine by tasting the popsicles you have made by yourself. It will take you a cup of red wine, 2 cups of dark chocolate chips and 1 1/2 cup of milk. Let the wine simmer at low for about 15 minutes, so it can reduce. Once it has been removed from heat, whisk in the chocolate until it becomes completely melted and then add milk stirring it. Pour into popsicle moulds and freeze for at least 12 hours.
Lemon Pale Ale Is A Frozen Must-Have
If you are among all of us who simply adore pale ale, you must make this popsicle. You will need 1/3 cup of squeezed lemon juice, a half of a cup of sugar and a cup of pale ale. Mix everything in a pitcher, and stir until the sugar has dissolved. Just pour into moulds and freeze for 6 hours.
This summer can get way better if you opt for turning your favourite booze into popsicles. You will only need a couple of minutes to make those and leave them overnight to get frozen and enjoy the day after. You will hardly find a better way to cool down on a hot summer day so grab your drinks and popsicle moulds and off we go. Just be sure not to overdo it, remember there is still alcohol in all those treats, so having a one too many may be bad for you. Enjoy yourself!
