What is there not to love about Boozy Popsicles (AKA “poptails”)? It is dessert and a drink combined in one. Plus it’s on a stick! I had wanted to make some of these forever and I thought it would be fun to experiment with some of the stuff I already had around the house. The 90+ degree temps lately have been making them all that much more appetizing….
Here are a couple of recipes I came up with!
Directions for all: mix all ingredients and pour into deep ice cube trays (or popsicle molds if you have them). Wait until they are half frozen and stick a toothpick/popsicle stick in each one. Place them back in the freezer and allow to set.
Note: don’t overdo it on the booze or they will not freeze!

The Banana Cream Pie poptails were my favorites. However, I brought the Tropic-sicles to a poolside gathering and they disappeared in about 2.2 seconds. I am excited to try out some more boozy pop recipe ideas!
