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.

Mudslides Gone Wild!

If you’ve read ES for, oh, 30 seconds or so, you probably know that we like cooking with booze. And no one does it better than our own bakers royale, who has found not 1, not 2, but 4 ways (so far) to turn a mudslide cocktail into a delicious dessert. Let’s take a moment to say bravo. And yum.

1. Mudslide Cupcake

Chocolate cake plus buttercream frosting infused with homemande Bailey’s, chocolate and kahlua. Bet you’re sorry you said you were over cupcakes now, huh?

2. Mudslide Ice Cream Cake

Take that kahlua, chocolate and Bailey’s, infuse it into some ice cream, and shape it into a cake.

Endless Poptails: Halloween Edition

We figured since it’s candy month, it is time to get shaking and turn some candy into, what else…a poptail!

We’ve scientifically dissected the Three Musketeers bar and broken down its nugget-y component. After pouring over our notes, we got mixing and testing with one shot after another and another…and, another.

Finally passing muster in our test kitchen, may we present a Halloween candy-cocktail-on-a-stick that is most definitely not for youngsters.

A Popsicle Fit for Football Season

Look around the blogosphere and you’ll see it seems like everyone is kicking off fall with pumpkin recipes. But we’re thinking football season here at ES. With that, we turned a beer float into a poptail.

We used a chocolate stout and vanilla ice cream, but your palate, your preference —so mix and match to suit your taste.

Time for a Mudslide…on a Stick

Fall is almost here and with that we are letting up on the fruit in the Poptails-a bit. But what we are not letting up on is the booze.

Get your mixing hands ready for this mudslide with a twist. We went and added a banana in the mix. The sweetness of the banana neutralizes any tang the vanilla yogurt body may have, and adds a bit of creaminess to the mixture. While we were at it, we also threw in some grated chocolate for added flavor and texture.

There you have it, enjoy your Endless Simmer twist-up of the traditional mudslide, in a Poptail.

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.

Now This is a Pudding Pop

White Russian and Black Russian Poptail

Since it’s a short work week, we thought we’d celebrate with a twofer, by filling your requests for both a White Russian and Black Russian Poptail in one post.

We used homemade pudding as our base for the cocktail-turned-popsicle. For those of you who need your Poptail STAT — find your quick fix by using a small box (3 1/2oz) of instant pudding. Keep in mind that whatever variation you use, they won’t release as easily as some of the other poptails,  so if the popsicles come out with a few rough edges, get busy and start licking.

Now for the non-sequitur of the day. . . We’re opening our test kitchen up for the upcoming spooky day celebration. Have a Halloween cocktail or idea you want to see Poptail’d? Shout it in the comments.
