Hi everyone! I hope you are all doing well on this wonderful day. I want to first start off by saying this post is for all my 21 and over friends! Today I am sharing the first recipe for some ice pops with alcohol in them. What better than a cocktail on a hot pool day…. a cocktail in ice pop form. This is the first recipe in my “Boozy Ice Pop” series. I am so excited to be sharing a couple more after this one. I have tried them all out and they are all so good!
I first tried making ice pops with alcohol last summer, I made mango margarita ones and they were so good! (Don’t worry that recipe will be coming up!). I want to remind you that most alcohol has a very high freezing point. So what does this mean for your ice pops? The more alcohol you add the more slushy like your pop will be. If you want it more solid, add more of the other ingredients. For this piña colada one, the texture was really creamy and ended up being almost like a sorbet. It’s so yummy!!
To create the ice pops, you can use a ice pop mold like this one! However, I found it was easier to use ice pop bag molds. The ones I used (here) are from Amazon and you throw them away when they done. I got 125 bags for like $11, and they came with a funnel. This made pouring the mix into the baggies so easy.
Boozy Piña Colada Ice Pops
Makes 4-5 (depending on the amount of juice you use)
1/2 cup of cream of coconut
1 1/2 cup of pineapple juice ( I used 2 of the Dole 6oz cans)
1 cup of coconut rum
1 1/2 cups of pineapple juice (I used 2 Dole 6oz cans)
1. Add all your ingredients into a large bowl. Whisk ingredients for a few minutes until completely incorporated. The coconut cream takes a little bit to completely mix in.
2. Next you want to pour your mixture into your ice pop mold or bag. If you are using the bag, you want to make sure you keep it upright. I ended up putting like 4-5 of the ice pops in a solo cup, and this worked great.
3. Put you ice pops in the freezer. For timing, I ended up keeping them in the freezer over night. By the next day they were frozen and ready to enjoy. Depending on if you add more juice, they might be ready in a few hours.
These are so perfect for a hot summer day! Keep a look out for more boozy ice pop recipes. I have a bunch more I’ll be putting up. If you end up making these, share it and tag me (@kaybellablog). I can’t wait to see!
