Welcome to that part of summer where everyone starts saying “it’s too dang hot!” While we may look forward to this moment when it’s winter, actually enduring through the blazing heat isn’t exactly a treat.
But do you know what is a treat, one that will make getting through the summer-heat-patch far easier on two fronts? Popsicles imbued with alcohol, of course!
Simultaneously cooling you down and calming your nerves, an alcoholic popsicle is basically the ultimate adult summer-snack. Bust one out during an intensely hot summer day and no one will even know you’re enjoying a cocktail, since they look just like regular popsicles!
Of course, keep these popsicles out of the hands of the kids.
So if you’re in need of some boozy popsicle inspiration, look no further than the 5 recipes below!
Peach Sangria-Prosecco Popsicles

Pimm’s Cup Popsicles
Here’s one for the cocktail lover, the Pimm’s popsicle that basically takes a Pimm’s Cup out of the cup and onto a popsicle stick. For those unfamiliar, a Pimm’s Cup is a classic English cocktail that combines the bitter flavours of Pimm’s liqueur with lemon and cucumber. The popsicle is much the same, only far more suited for summer!

Who says popsicles have to be filled with fruit? No one should, because Fudgesicles were the best part of summer as a kid, and these Nutella Bailey’s popsicles are a close match. Well, except for the addition of delicious Nutella and some alcohol, both of which always make things better.
