Endless Poptails: Pomegranate Sex on the Beach

I don’t do this often, but this week I’m going to say: pony up, baby! That is, pony up to the tune of  thriteen bucks for some Pama Pomegranate Flavor liqueur. I generally try to stay mainstream with the booze to keep the cost down on these poptails, but I’m pimping Pama because it’s well deserved and has earned a spot near the front of my bar. Alright, the pantry—I don’t actually have a bar. You would think any place that touts”luxury apartments” would feature a wet bar, but nope, my fancy booze sits edge-to-edge with some not-so fancy stuff like store-brand frosted flakes and oreos.

This week’s Poptail is in response to a request from AnaMarie, who wrote ES saying,  “I need one with sex on the beach pleaseeee! that is my favorite drinK!” Here you go.  . .

That’s sex on the beach using a pineapple body and a pomegranate liqueur instead of  Chambord. If you are wondering why I used raspberries instead of a pomegranate — the latter is out of season here.  If anyone can find pomegranates and makes this with it, please come back and tell the rest of us how you like it. For now, we will be enjoying a sweet and tart blend of fruity goodness shot up with vodka and sweetened by Pama.

Sex on the Beach Poptails

Makes 10 popsicles

12 oz. pineapple ( about half of a large pineapple)
3 oz. raspberries (about 13 regular-size raspberries)
4 oz. vodka
2 oz. Pama Pomegrante liqueur


1. Place the pineapple and vodka in a food processor or a blender and process until pureed and well blended. Set aside.

2. Place raspberry and Pama Liqueur in the food processor or a blender and process until pureed and well blended.

3. Pour 1/2 oz of pineapple mixture into each popsicle well,  then pour 1 oz of rasberry mixture on top of it.  Fill remainder of the popsicle wells with pineapple mixture. Use the narrow handle of a spoon or fork to gently drag raspberry mixture through the pineapple mixture and against the walls of the mold for a soft swirling effect.

4. Place foil on top of popsicle form and cut a tiny hole in the center of each well. Stick popsicle stick through the hole. Freeze for at least 6 hours or until frozen solid. To release popsicles, run hot water on the outside of popsicle molds for 2-3 seconds.

    What do you use for the mold? Can I just use a small paper cup?

  • Diane May 11, 2013  

    These are tasty – except the raspberry seeds are a real buzz kill. I couldn’t finish mine. It was like sand in my mouth. Also not enough raspberry pomegranate mix. I had to double it. If I make these again I will strain berries through a sieve befor mixing with Pom liqueur. 20 bucks for the liqueur.
