Make this summer one to remember with these delicious and refreshing alcoholic popsicles.
These boozy ice pops are fun, fruity, and feature just enough booze to make you feel good.
The trick to making popsicles with alcohol is getting the ratios just right, so Wine Magazine recommends one part alcohol to five parts “other.”
The “other” could be apple juice, lemonade, or even condensed milk. So long as you have enough, these alcoholic popsicles will set beautifully.
Of course, that means you aren’t getting a ton of liquor in each popsicle. But that’s okay! You can have more than one 😉
1. Boozy Mango Pineapple Popsicles
These four-ingredient alcohol pops include tequila, lime juice, mango, and pineapples.
They’re tropical, slushy treats that’ll help you beat the summer heat. Plus, they’re so fruity that you’ll barely taste the tequila.
Unfortunately, they don’t get super hard and stay a little mushy. That means you’ll have to wolf them down before they start to melt.
You can add another half cup of lime (or lemon) juice to make them harder. Of course, that’ll also make them much tarter than the original recipe.
But to be honest, that’s not a bad thing!
2. Easy Vodka Popsicles with Lemonade
These tart and tangy treats are impossibly easy to make.
Pour four cups of lemonade and a cup of vodka into your popsicle molds, freeze them for 12 hours, and they’re ready to serve.
These get reasonably hard, so you can take your time eating them, and this recipe works with store-bought lemonade or homemade.
You can even substitute pink lemonade if you like!
3. Boozy Red, White, And Blueberry Cheesecake Popsicles
These patriotic pops feature the sweet and tangy taste of cheesecake and berries.
Each boozy popsicle includes three layers of yumminess, and there’s alcohol in every layer.
My favorite is the cheesecake filling (of course) while my bestie insists the sweetened strawberry top is the bomb.
That said, we both adore the blueberries!
No matter which part you prefer, I’m sure you’ll quickly devour the whole thing and soon reach for another.
4. Blueberry Mojito Popsicles
I love mojitos. Period. Full stop.
They’re light, minty, and unbelievably refreshing. In my eyes, they’re the perfect cocktail.
And adding blueberries and freezing them might just push them over the edge.
They aren’t as strong as a typical mojito, which is a downside. However, I love the way these look.
The icy white popsicles with bright bursts of blue and green are gorgeous.
Plus, the blueberries add a dash of tart tanginess that’s hard not to enjoy.
5. Jack and Mexican Coke Popsicles
Want something less fruity and more whiskey-filled? Jack and Mexican Coke popsicles are just the things.
They’re full of that classic Jack and Coke flavor and pack quite a punch.
Eating one will cool you down on a hot day. Eating two might start to warm you up again.
You know, in that wonderful way whiskey always does. Yum!
6. Prosecco Popsicles
If fairies ate popsicles, these are the ones they’d eat. They’re simply stunning and the pale pink does little to conceal the cache of berries inside.
That’s what makes them so lovely!
Plus, you’ll love the fizzy champagne taste against the berries. They’re a sweet, tart, and tangy treat.
And getting to eat the frozen fruit inside? BONUS!
7. Coconut Strawberry Daiquiri Popsicles
Use this recipe if you want something a bit creamier.
You’ll combine strawberries, coconut milk, lime juice, maple syrup, and rum to make these.
The result is a cold, creamy popsicle with a rich, tropical flavor.
The strawberries help lighten the taste somewhat and also keep it from being too sugary.
Still, this one is definitely for people who appreciate the sweeter things in life.
8. Piña Colada Italian Ice Pops
🎶 If you like piña coladas…🎶
Then you’ll adore these Italian ice pops because that’s exactly what they taste like.
Everything that makes a piña colada great is in these popsicles.
You’ll taste the coconut, pineapple, lime, and the rum. They’re sweet, tropical, and seriously boozy.
They’re the best popsicles for taking to the beach.
9. Watermelon Mojito Popsicles
Here’s another delicious, invigorating mojito popsicle recipe.
This one pairs the freshness of mojitos with the bright, juicy flavor of watermelon, which is such a fantastic combination.
Crisp, refreshing, and not overly sweet, they’ll cool you off any day of the year and leave your mouth tasting fresh, too!
10. Coffee and Cream Stout Beersicles
If you prefer chocolate popsicles to fruity ones, this recipe is for you.
There’s no actual chocolate. However, they have the same rich, bold, creamy flavor as a Fudge Pop.
Instead of chocolate, you’ll use coffee, sugar, heavy cream, and beer. Yes, beer!
In fact, the darker the beer, the better these will taste.
They’re cold, creamy, and caffeinated. They taste so phenomenal that even the non-beer drinkers I know enjoy them.
11. Jalapeño Mango Margarita Popsicles
Sweet, fruity, tangy, and… spicy? Yep! These mango-infused margarita popsicles have a bite to them!
If you’ve never had jalapeño tequila or spicy margarita, try it right now.
It’s unlike any alcohol you’ve ever had. It has a distinctly hot kick, but not like Fireball whiskey or Goldschläger. Instead, it’s a more focused punch.
It’s hard to describe, but it’s incredible.
Additionally, you’ll add cayenne and jalapeño to the popsicles themselves.
They’re fruity, cold, and surprisingly refreshing.
12. Tequila Sunset Freezer Pops
These frozen tequila popsicles are gorgeous.
They feature all the colors of the sun setting over the ocean and they taste fantastic, too – citrusy, slightly sweet, and wonderfully tangy.
Unfortunately, like the boozy mango popsicles above, they don’t freeze firmly. Instead, they stay a little mushy and thaw out fast.
I’ve managed to get them a little harder by adding an extra half cup of orange juice. Then I let them freeze them overnight instead of just five hours.
13. Vodka Gummy Bears Popsicles
These are just plain fun, with or without the booze.
The recipe recommends Sprite or Ginger Ale, but you can choose whatever light-colored drink you like best – just make sure it pairs well with vodka.
If you’re making booze-free ones for your kids, toss your Gummy Bears into a popsicle mold. Then, add your chosen drink.
If you want boozy pops; let the Gummy Bears soak in the vodka first. Remember, the longer you leave them, the more vodka they’ll absorb.
Then, add them to your mold and pour the drink on top.
Add and freeze them in layers to help spread the Gummy Bears throughout the entire popsicle.
And don’t forget: the more Gummy Bears you add, the boozier your popsicles will be.
14. Mai Tai Popsicles & Smoothies
Here’s a recipe for those who like their popsicles sweet and creamy.
You’ll make these boozy pops with Greek yogurt and almond milk. As a result, they’re pretty rich.
They have a terrific taste, though – fruity and citrusy, with notes of cherries, oranges, and vanilla.
The alcohol isn’t too strong in them, though. So you’ll need to eat at least a few before you’re likely to catch a buzz.
15. Strawberry Winesicles
I love these winesicles, but they always amaze me.
You’ll make them with rosé wine, red fruit juice, and strawberries but somehow they taste like pure wine.
Maybe I add too much rosé, because it’s all I taste. That’s not a bad thing – assuming you like rosé, of course.
16. Blue Lagoon Cocktail Popsicles
These take just 10 minutes to prepare and need another four hours to freeze.
And they freeze solid. The five ounces of liqueur are no match for the 20 ounces of “other.”
Plus, these are just a lot of fun.
You’ll love their vibrant blue color, and each one includes a brilliant red Swedish Fish swimming around in an azure ocean.
Their taste is incredible, too. Each one is like a citrusy glass of punch, only in popsicle form.
17. Boozy Raspberry Peach Prosecco Popsicles
These multicolored popsicles are flavorful and sugary sweet. The grape raspberry drink pairs wonderfully with all the peachy flavor.
If you love super sweet popsicles, these are the ones for you.
They’re a little tangy, too, but mostly, they taste like juicy, overripe peaches.
18. Frozen Sweet Tea Vodka Pops
I adore sweet tea, so these were a no brainer for me. And oh my goodness, they’re amazing!
With or without the vodka, they’re perfectly sweet and refreshing.
This boozy version is just as delightful, but it also has the potential to give you a buzz.
So you won’t see me turning it down!
19. Dark and Stormy Popsicles
These amber popsicles taste just like their namesake – which just so happens to be my all-time favorite rum-based cocktail.
Dark & Stormy’s have such a unique, robust, earthy, spiced flavor that’s hard to describe. And these alcoholic popsicles capture that perfectly.
They aren’t sweet or tart, but they’re not too bitter, either.
Zesty, spiced, and loaded with rum, you’ll want more than one of these bad boys!
20. Irish Coffee and Cream Popsicles
This recipe is for another creamy, caffeinated, coffee-based popsicle.
Feature strong coffee, Irish cream liqueur, condensed milk, and heavy whipping cream, they’re smooth, silky, and spectacularly rich.
They’ll help you cool down and satisfy your sweet tooth simultaneously.
21. Mango Bourbon Smash Popsicles
Ah, mint and mango – what a delightful combination.
These fresh, crisp popsicles are sweet, boozy, and oh-so refreshing.
You’ll add a frozen banana to them for sweetness and lime juice for zing. They take just five minutes to whip up, but need a solid 12 hours to feeeze.
Four ounces of bourbon may not seem like a lot but it’s enough to slow down the freezing process.
These have a stronger alcohol flavor than others on the list.
In fact, the bourbon infuses them with an incredibly appealing and almost smoky after-taste. Delish!
22. Strawberry Lemonade Vodka Freeze Pops
These freezer pops feature tart lemonade and fresh strawberries.
And the strawberry lemonade vodka mixes so well with them that you’ll barely taste it.
They’re perfect if you want cold, refreshing popsicles that aren’t too sweet or boozy.
23. Strawberry Margarita Ice Pops
These lovely red popsicles taste just like a strawberry margarita – fruity, zesty, and a tiny bit sour.
Be sure to follow the “optional” instructions, like dipping them in tequila and salt before serving. It’s the finishing touch that makes them outstanding.
24. Frosé Sangria Popsicles
All you’ll need for these frosé popsicles is a cup of rosé, orange juice, and honey. Plus whatever fruits you like best.
And don’t worry about adjusting the recipe for this one – wine freezes much more easily than hard liquors.
You shouldn’t have any trouble getting these to harden.
They’re light, fruity, and boozy but not too strong, which is perfect if you want to cool down and feel great but not get tipsy.
25. Boozy Red White & Blueberry Rocket Pops
Remember those red, white, and blue Rocket Pops from your childhood? Well, these are the boozy, adult versions of those.
They have a deliciously fruity, somewhat tropical taste from the blend of sweet coconut milk, sugar, and tart berries.
Additionally, the pineapple vodka provides a beautiful base for everything else.
These don’t taste precisely like Rocket Pops. Instead, they’re even better – fresher, cleaner, and less candy-like.
Plus, there’s alcohol! That automatically makes them better.
