Frozen cocktail popsicles are a great way to get your drink on when you’re soaking up some summer sun. Keep in mind that alcohol freezes at a higher rate than nonalcoholic ingredients so it’s important to keep the ratios right.

The key to this tropical frozen drink is using ripe pineapple. If it’s not sweet enough, then add a bit of maple syrup or agave nectar to the mixture. Also, don’t blend the mixture too much; you want to have some bits of pineapple for texture and flavor. Combine all of the ingredients, then pour into popsicle molds and freeze until solid. Serve these popsicles as a refreshing snack or dessert, or at a barbecue or dinner party. They’re also great for summer birthday parties!
Whiskey Smash Popsicles

And, yes, these adult iced treats do just as well with lime soda as they do with cola.
When it comes to freezing alcohol, it’s important to remember that the more sugar-forward the ingredients are, the less likely your popsicles will freeze solid. This is why it’s essential to use a low-sugar mixer, like fresh lemon juice or homemade simple syrup. Plus, a ratio of one part alcohol to five parts nonalcoholic liquid is ideal for freezing drinks that will keep their shape and flavor once they’re thawed.

Gin Rickey Popsicles
This refreshing summer drink is made even better frozen. It’s easy to make your own gin rickey popsicles with the classic ingredients of gin, lime juice, and club soda.

Frozen gin and tonics are also a great addition to any backyard barbecue. They’re perfect for mixing in with a pitcher of lemonade or serving as a cocktail garnish on your bar cart.
Use a liquid measuring cup with a spout or the funnel that may be included in your freezer pop sleeves to pour your gin and tonic mixture. Make sure not to fill the sleeves to the brim as alcohol doesn’t freeze and will leak if you do. Insert a popsicle stick and place in the freezer overnight.
This boozy popsicle breaks the rules of traditional rum punch as it doesn’t include grenadine, but if you like those fruity popsicles are a little too much, feel free to add a splash or two. It’s all in the name of fun, right?
