4th of July Cocktail Cooler Popsicles

Posted by on June 29 2011 in Holiday, Recipe

This 4th of July we’ve got you ready to stay cool for your summer picnic, and to keep things patriotic we striped your cocktail cooler with Uncle Sam’s signature colors. Kinda.

The striping is a bit messy, but um, so was the test kitchen while mixing. That’s what happens Monday night when you’re mixing, shaking, testing, pouring, more testing—things get a little blurry. The result of that blurry-good-time is a Poptail stamped with our ES Double Seal of Goodness.

The implication of our double seal — Good enough to lick to the stick!

4th of July Cocktail Cooler Popsicles

 

· 1 cup vodka
· 3 tablespoon triple sec
· 2 tablespoons lime juice

Instructions:

1. Place vodka, triple sec and lime juice in a shaker and shake for about 10 seconds or until well combined; set aside.

2. Place blueberry mixture and club soda in a glass and stir to mix. Add in one third of alcohol mixture and stir to combine. Pour mixture in popsicle mold and freeze for 1 hour or until blueberry layer freezes enough so the next layer does not mix.

3. Place POM juice and one third of alcohol mixture and stir to combine. Pour mixture in popsicle mold and freeze for a 1 hour or until POM layer freezes enough so the next layer does not mix. Insert popsicle into mixture.

4. Place pear juice and one third of alcohol mixture and stir to combine. Pour mixture in popsicle mold and freeze for until popsicle is frozen solid.

    The popsicles sound so wonderful. Any chance you could list what the quantities/replacements of the ingredients should be if you can’t/don’t want to use alcohol?

    Hi Susan-To replace the vodka try using Sprite, lemonade or just plain sparkling water. These popsicles are highly adaptable, so taste along the way and mix to taste your preference.
