Adult Popsicles: Frozen Boozy Treats

For this month's Recipe Redux, we were inspired to create new frozen treats. There was nothing I wanted to do more in this Texas heat! I've seen some alcoholic Popsicle recipes floating around the interweb, and decided to try my own. I had significant doubts that the alcohol would actually freeze, but by limiting the amounts they become frozen delights. So you don't have too worry about getting too tipsy after just one of these treats!

I'm the owner of a sole Popsicle mold. But you can find fantastic popsicle molds on Amazon or just use paper dixie cups with popsicle sticks.

Cape Codder-with a twist
Everyone knows the classic cocktail of cranberry juice, vodka, with a squeeze of lime. I had cranberry vodka, courtesy of Amanda Milad, in my freezer, and decided to switch this cocktail up a bit. Triple 8 vodka in Nantucket also makes a fabulous infused cranberry vodka. This helped cure some New England home-sickness!

  • 0.5 oz Cranberry Vodka
  • 2 oz water
  • Juice of 1 lime
  • Liquid NuNaturals Stevia to taste

Mix together. Freeze. Makes 1 popsicle

Dark Chocolate Bourbon Delights
This recipe was in Fine Cooking (August/September 2009) and I had to try it! I changed a couple things, but the results were spectacular!

4 oz 100% Unsweetened chocolate bar
2 Tablespoons unsweetened cocoa powder
1/2 tsp stevia

a pinch of salt
Stir til melted. Let cool. add
2 TableSpoon Maker's Mark

Pour into 4 8-oz popsicle molds. Freeze and Enjoy!!

**and please eat responsibly ;) **
