Dirty Pirate Popsicles

We have thing for getting sideways with classic cocktails and then turning them into poptails. This week the classic rum and coke has been flipped to a Dirty Pirate.

That’s rum and coke with a some Kahlua. While we’d love to take credit for this awesomely name cocktail, we can’t, but we are taking credit for turning it into poptail ,at the suggestion of a co-worker.

Pirates, Coke and booze, yeah, Wednesday is getting better already. And just in case you need a variation, replace the Kahlua with peach schnapps for a Dirty Pirate Hooker.

Play nice and play safe. Happy Pirating this Wednesday.

Dirty Pirate Popsicle

  • 2 1/2 cups Coke
  • 1/3 cup Captain Morgan Spiced Rum
  • 1/3 cup Kahlua


  1. Place all ingredients in a large glass and stir to combine. Pour mixture into popsicles mold.
  2.  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.

*Slightly flat Coke will produce a popsicle that stays frozen longer. To quickly and manually flatten out the carbonation, empty out enough Coke from a 2-liter bottle to leave a 3-inch space from top of bottle to top of coke. Place cap back on and shake vigorously for 10 seconds. Set aside to leave bubbles to subside.

    That is one of the most gorgeous food photos I’ve ever seen. Who is your photographer? Stunning. The colors, the textures, the lighting.

    I have to make these pops now. They look too good not to.

    These look amazing, but doesn’t the alcohol keep them from freezing solid?

    I accidentally used way too much alcohol (1 1/3 cup of kahlua and rum)…eek. Hope it will freeze and still be good 🙁

    how do these freeze with all the booze? I have made slush and it is the whiskey that keeps that from freezing had.

    Where do you find the molds.

  • Tina April 6, 2014  

    Just took these out of the mold. Made these according to the recipe (used flat Coke too). They are yummy, but a little soft due to the alcohol content. As in, one broke in half as I was putting them in bags … So I had to eat it right away. 😉 Be careful with them!

  • Bobbie June 30, 2015  

    i tried with coffee, sweetened condensed milk and salted caramel Kahlua…it won’t freeze. Perhaps too much Kahlua?
