Simple Ingredients…Fruit, Juice & Booze

You can change the recipe by using alcohol & fruit that you like

Fresh Fruit tastes great but fruit juice can be used to save time

berries

Making a boozy ice pop requires the right balance of booze to juice. (2 cups juice to 2 oz of alcohol seems to work)…if you use too much booze and don’t freeze them long enough (at least 12 hours) you will end up with a slushy (which will also be good just not what you intended).

You can sub in fruit and booze of your choice just keep the ratios in check…these will not get you drunk but perhaps a little buzzed.

Watermelon & Tequila Ice Pops (Vodka or Rum would also work)…

  • 4 cups watermelon (chopped in cubes)-should equal around 2 cups
  • Juice of 2 limes
  • 1/3 cup tequila (or alcohol of choice) this is equal to about 2.5 ounces
  • Simple syrup (to make use 1/4 cup water , 1/4 cup sugar bring to a boil and boil for 1 minute)
  • Directions:
  • Blend watermelon and lime juice in a food processor until smooth (strain through a sieve to remove seeds)
  • Mix watermelon, tequila and simple syrup together and pour into Popsicle molds- do not add sticks
  • Freeze molds for 30-60 minutes then add sticks and freeze for 12-24 hours until frozen. (Keep in mind alcohol does not freeze through) so these will be solid and hold their shape but not rock hard

Strawberry, Peach and Vodka pops

  • 2 peaches sliced
  • 8 medium strawberries, (hulled and sliced-take the green part off)
  • 2 cups orange Juice
  • 1 oz vodka (you can add up to 2 oz if you want more punch)
  • 1 oz Cointreau (if you add more vodka add more Cointreau)
  • Directions:
  • Blend OJ, peaches, 4 strawberries, Vodka & Cointreau until smooth (there will be some pulp from fruit)
  • If there is froth on top skim with spoon and discard
  • Fill ice pop molds 3/4 to the top then add in the rest of the chopped strawberries (do not add sticks)
  • Freeze for 1 hour, then add sticks, then freeze for at least 12 hours
  • recipe from a great site (shutterbean.com)

(A short cut would be to use fruit juice instead of fresh fruit)

enjoy!
