Cocktail Popsicles: An Adult Twist On a Childhood Classic

We've noticed a definite trend in spiked popsicles this year, made with a variety of alcohols, some with fresh fruit added. We believe these are the new Jello Shots of the Millennial generation. Not that Jello Shots have lost their cache, but summer weather certainly makes this frozen variety very popular.

Cocktail Popsicles: An Adult Twist On a Childhood Classic

Spring has sprung and it’s giving us major warm weather vibes!

We love to break out the barbecue grill and sip on a cold beverage, soaking up the sun. If you’re tired of the average cocktail or ice-cold beer – it’s time to spice it up! Popsicles remind us of youth, but who says we can’t enjoy them as adults?

2 cups of sliced strawberries or you can use frozen

1/2 cup sugar

1/2 cup Sprite

1/4 cup tequila

Directions: Cut the strawberries and place in small pan with sugar over low heat until it starts to boil. Use a potato masher to crush the strawberries until they reach a thick consistency. Remove from heat for five minutes then mix in tequila and stir. Last, slowly incorporate sprite as it will create bubbles. Let sit for ten minutes. Place in molds and freeze for four hours, then serve.
