Tired of Adult Popsicles Yet? We Didn’t Think So

You like fruit, you like vodka, you like popsicles — shoot, you like a lot of things. So to help move you more quickly towards all your likings, we found a way to combine the three aforementioned likes into one.

Before your skeptical brow can arch upwards, let us say — yes, you can freeze vodka. After some quick experimenting and an afternoon of mixing and an evening of freezing …Strawberry Peach Vodka Collins Popsicles are yours for the licking!

And careful, these are deceptively kid-like in flavor but packed with adult enjoyment.


Strawberry Peach Vodka Collins Popsicles

Makes 12 2.5 oz Popsicles

6 oz pureed strawberry (about 10 strawberries)
2 oz peach syrup (recipe follows)
12 oz tonic water
2 oz plus 3 oz vodka (divided use)


1. Stir strawberry puree with 2 oz. of vodka. Place three teaspoons of strawberry mixture in the bottom of popsicle form; set aside. (As mentioned in last week’s cocktail popsicle, I used cordial glasses, but any form will work.)

2. Stir peach syrup with tonic water stir to combine. Add vodka and stir to combine.

3. Pour peach and vodka mixture over strawberry mixture and stir to combine.

4. Freeze for about 2 hours or until mixture starts to solidify enough to hold a popsicle stick upright. Insert popsicle sticks and finish freezing popsicles overnight. To release popsicles run hot water on the outside of popsicle molds for a 2-3 seconds.

Peach Syrup

(You will have more syrup than you need. Save for other cocktail uses)

½ cup sliced peaches (about 4 medium size peaches)
1 cup water
1 cups sugar


1. Wash, peel, and pit peaches. Place peaches in a blender or food processor and process until peaches are pureed.

2. Place water, sugar and peach puree in a pot and bring to a boil and continue to boil for 5 minutes.

  • Holly June 12, 2011  

    These look amazing! I’m trying to make them now actually 🙂 I have a question – how syrupy is the syrup supposed to be? I messed up and pureed too many peaches and so now my proportions are a bit off…how much does that matter?
    Thanks for the lovely recipe!

  • Holly June 12, 2011  

    Also, 12 oz of tonic water? That seems like an awful lot, is there a typo maybe? Or perhaps there’s just something I’m not understanding 🙂

  • bakersroyale June 12, 2011  

    Holly-It is indeed 12oz tonic water. You can certainly adjust it to your personal preference as to how strong you like your drink. If 12oz. seems like alot, start with pouring in 8oz, taste it, then adjust from there for your personal preference.

  • bakersroyale June 12, 2011  

    Holly-If you find the mixture to syrupy, strain the peach syrup of the pulp some and dilute with some water if necessary.

  • Holly June 13, 2011  

    Thanks for the responses! I kinda ended up doing my own thing with the proportions and they turned out excellent anyways!! Guess it’s pretty hard to screw up, what with such lovely ingredients. Thanks so much for the recipe, yum yum yum!

  • uline June 17, 2011  

    Can I substitute the peach syrup? I have plenty of home-made passion fruit syrup.

    these look absolutely amazing! I am def going to try these out with my voli vodka, def try a low cal alcohol it is a great fix!

  • Jess March 8, 2012  

    How can this be possible, Vodka does not have a freezing point, so they cannot freeze so how do you freeze them, the peach would freeze but you would be left with vodka at the bottom. The reason I know this, I have tried this recipe and I have tried many times to freeze vodka. So either there is a new brand of vodka that can freeze…I do not think this recipe is right.

  • Annie B. March 12, 2012  

    I so want to make this!!

    I would love to try these but I don’t drink. Is there a non-alcoholic version?

  • bakersroyale March 17, 2012  

    Hi Danielle-Just omit the alcohol completely and you will have fruit pops.

  • Indialee12 April 12, 2012  

    These look great and I have flash frozen fruit in my deep freeze right now – I see these on the menu this weekend

  • Jessi April 29, 2012  

    Odd question:
    I work at a smoothie place that has premade bottled puree’s, I was thinking about just using both, but then I remembered you said peach syrup. Do you think it makes a difference if I use peach puree or syrup? Will it be less likely to freeze? I’m just trying to make it easier for myself. 🙂

  • Cinda April 30, 2012  

    Do you have the nutritional value on these delicious-looking popsicles? I’m dieting but still would like to try them. Thanks.

    Can you substitute for the tonic water? I try to stay away from carbonated things, I get sick from them.

  • deborah July 5, 2013  

    How do 4 sliced peaches equal 1/2 cup? Is that after the puree?

  • Lisa August 5, 2013  

    I had a random thought about this poptail. Both strawberries and peaches each go really well with cream. Would you consider making up an alternative recipe for this poptail using a cream element (maybe plain yogurt again, or possibly something else) as you did in the Bourbon Peaches and Cream poptail?
