Bourbon Peaches and Cream Popsicles

Posted by on May 20 2011 in Desserts, Recipe

Faster than you can say “cupcake fatigue,” gourmet popsicles have become the latest fully saturated food trend. Now you don’t even have to leave your house to have them. here’s a DIY home brew popsicle recipe with an adult twist.

Don’t be fooled by the Lolita-esque styling of these pops. The crushed peaches in these popsicles were soaked in a bourbon bath to cool you down and chill you out. Mix it with a little simple syrup and some plain yogurt and you’ll have cocktail popsicles in just a few freezing hours.

. . . And of course, lick responsibly.

Bourbon Peaches and Cream Popsicles


Makes 18-22 popsicles

· 1 cup ripe peaches, crushed

· ¼ cup bourbon

· ½ cup simple syrup, cooled (recipe follows)

· 2 cups plain yogurt


1. Peel and slice peaches. Use a potato masher to crush the peaches. Combine crushed peaches and bourbon in a bowl, mix to combine. Add the simple syrup in slowly and taste to preference. Add yogurt to bourbon peach mixture and combine.

2. Score top edge of Dixie cup with scissors for easy peeling. Pour mixture into Dixie cups. Freeze for two hours or until mixture starts to solidify enough to hold a popsicle stick upright. Continue to freeze until mixture is completely frozen into a popsicle, about 5-6 hours. Peel off Dixie cups. Serve.


Simple Syrup

· ¼ cup water

· ¼ sugar


1. Place water and sugar in a sauce pan over medium heat. Heat and stir until sugar dissolves.


A few notes:

· Use the simple syrup sparingly. Taste the mixture as you mix to make sure it’s to your liking. Use more for a sweeter tasting popsicle and less for a popsicle that will have a stronger bourbon flavor.

· If you do not have ripe peaches on hand, use canned peaches in light syrup (make sure to drain before use). If you use canned peaches, bypass the simple syrup.

· To shave some time, use vanilla yogurt instead of plain yogurt to skip the simple syrup portion. Keep in mind this version will be much sweeter as vanilla flavored yogurt is sweetened. If you are using this in combination with canned peaches, rinse the peaches and add 2-3 tablespoons bourbon in addition to the ¼ cup in the recipe. The added tablespoons will offset any sweetness that may overpower the bourbon.

· Of course you can omit the bourbon completely for a simple Peaches and Cream Popsicle.

    Delicious! You took me years back to childhood moments when the whole family would spend an afternoon preparing fresh ice cream the old fashioned way… will definitely try your recipe.
    Quite sure will bring back unforgettable tastes, flavors and more pleasant memories! Great post and nice photo.

    I just made these and they were wonderful. I used agave nectar instead of simple syrup since I had a bunch on hand. The flavor was lovely. A wonderful combination of sweet, tart and bourbon. My only problem was that I couldn’t get the stick out of my popsicle mold so we ended up eating them with spoons.

    To Christina (who could not remove the popsicles)…if you set the mold into a container of warm to hot water for a few seconds, then the mold should release the popsicle. Works almost every time. Hope this helps :-)

    Monique, the sticks come in the cheap-o indivually-portioned ice cream cups. (the kind that turn to milk by just looking at them). That’s the only place I’ve seen them. Hope that makes sense.
