Boozy Frozen Peach Pops

SUMMER BUCKET LIST ITEM # 1

Make Boozy Ice Pops

STATUS: DONE

If you don’t know what I’m talking about, you should listen to the Joy the Baker Podcast! Joy & I talked about our summer bucket list for 2012 a few weeks ago. To fill you in, this summer  I want to paint my toes a super girly color (I’m totally a dark gothy nail polish kinda girl), have a BBQ, make/eat s’mores and make boozy ice pops. There may or may not be an impromptu laundromat dance in that bucket… I’ve got work to do!

There are a few things to note about putting booze in ice pops. It’s ALLLL about the ratio. In my internet research, I found that you need 2 cups juice to 2 oz. of alcohol. If you mess with that ratio, you’re bound to get a frozen pop that doesn’t freeze. Boozy slushies do sound kinda good though… You also have to freeze them for at least 12 hours. Booze just takes longer to freeze!

This peachy orange strawberry flavor combo was fantastic. It’s refreshing, sweet and full of good fruits. You don’t really taste a ton of booze (I think it’s the Cointreau that masks it a bit) but there is something a little “adult” about it. You’ll see.

If you’re looking for a more Boozy Susan experience, serve your frozen peach pops with ANOTHER cocktail. Dip it in there!  You could also take the sticks out and blend up the pops with more booze in a blender. Consider this recipe a  gateway drug to more boozy frozen pops this summer.

We’ve got your number, SUMMER!

And we’re off!

Ingredient gathering. I’ve noticed that I cannot, for the life of me, write a lower case r.

Why can’t I do that?! Oh well.

Blend it all together! In a blender!

Skim off the frothy top!

Put the blended mixture in your molds.

I used this one. I’m totally in love with this ice pop maker!

Now it’s time to add in some chopped strawberries.

Put it in the freezer. Let it chill for about an hour.

Then add in your sticks!

After about 12 hours, GO IN FOR THE ATTACK.

You’ll love these boozy frozen peach pops.

I’m sure of it. Put them in a plastic freezer bag.

Hand them out to your friends at parties or hoard them for yourself.

BUCKET!

    So excited to try this! I wanted to do this last summer but never came across the perfect recipe. And oh yeah, I was pregnant/ had a newborn last summer, soooo….but this summer is all about a perfect boozy pop!

  • June 20, 2012

    This looks delicious AND the orange and blue remind me of my wedding colors!

    Okay, I was on the fence about boozepops. But this recipe has shown me the light. Must make.

  • June 20, 2012

    Making frozen pops is definitely on my summer to-do list, too. My popsicle molds should be on my porch when I get home, eek! This recipe sounds like a wonderful combo and are so darn pretty.

  • June 20, 2012

    YUM!
    I make a boozy peach slush with bouron/whiskey :http://lollingabout.wordpress.com/2011/07/27/wasted-wednesday-peach-slush/
    but a popsicle version looks like so much fun!

  • June 20, 2012

    I’m not a huge popsicle fan, but these look amazing. All my favorite stuff in one bar!

  • June 20, 2012

    My two year old and my 10 month old are both running fevers. I could use. 6-pack of these! For myself, of course. Looks yummy!

  • June 20, 2012

    you had me at boozey – heLLO summer!

  • June 20, 2012

    These look super good and refreshing. I have to check out how much freezer space we have for an upcoming family reunion. I’d love to make these.

    I’m tempted to buy that popsicle mold! With no central AC, I need POPS!

  • June 20, 2012

    Oh geez. These looks fantastic. I’ve got so many party ideas now, and no party to throw! That may have to change soon. Thank you for these!

  • June 20, 2012

    Shut. UUUUUUUUP!

  • June 20, 2012

    Shut the front door!! Hoarder of booze pops I will!

  • June 20, 2012

    Another perfect reason to actually go buy popsicle molds. I really need to get on that before summer is gone–because these sound wonderful!

  • June 20, 2012

    IIIIIIIN.

  • June 20, 2012

    Where do you get the molds from? I’m struggling to find any in NZ so will buy online from the US if someone can direct me to a good site please, thanks in advance! :)

    It’s Winter here but I’m weird and like ice pops all year round. These look delish.

    • June 20, 2012

      Briscoes usually has some sort of iceblock mould, though they might not be as cute as these ones. Or maybe moore wilsons if you are in Wellington, good luck!

      • June 21, 2012

        Thanks Laura! I have some terribly expensive but quite ugly looking Tupperware ones. I suppose it’s better than nothing. Will check out MW.

  • June 20, 2012

    holy mother of yum… these look fantastic! I have a bachelorette party to go to this summer and these are perfect for it!! Thanks for the inspiration!!

  • Where’d you get your popsicle molds?

  • June 20, 2012

    Boozy popsicles sound like the perfect way to end an adults-only dinner party. I’m tempted to try the slushy version.

  • June 20, 2012

    your photos look so bright this week. and these look to die for!

  • June 20, 2012

    Great looking pops! I’m so glad you crossed an item off your bucket list. As a teacher, I’m waiting for my summer to start next week!

  • June 20, 2012

    love the photos!

    I just got my popsicle molds in the mail yesterday. Stop reading my mind!

  • June 20, 2012

    I had to add boozy popsicles onto my bucket list after hearing you podcast, and I added the hamburger buns ones from Joy. I don’t see a laundromat dance in my future either.

  • awesome recipe… and even awesome-r handwriting!

    BOOZY SUSAN! My favorite thing ever from your podcasts. Or slutty moose. Okay, I have several favorite things. These will be happening this weekend!

  • Way to go on crossing off number one! These look super refreshing.

  • June 21, 2012

    genius. must make these asap. they’re necessary for pool time.

  • Love this idea Tracy. I have some friends coming for a casual dinner this Sat and this is so going to be dessert! It’s 45 degrees C here in Dubai at the moment so these refreshing pops will go down a treat. Just hope my 5 year old doesn’t raid the freezer …!!

  • June 21, 2012

    These look redonk and delish. I’m crazy into peachy goodness so I can’t wait to try these!

  • Muriel
    June 21, 2012

    I’ll have to add these to my summer bucket list! Gonna have to raid my boyfriends stock of alcohol (is Grey Goose too fancy for frozen pops?) and make these soon. Any chance you’ll be making a pina colada version?

      June 21, 2012

      you’ve read my mind!

    Laura and I made these today. Non- alcoholic version for the kids (carefully marked) and a double boozey batch for us for later. We are taking our triple boozey batch that refuses to freeze out to the pool. Phil got the short straw, so he is our designated “everything” today!

    • Tracy
      June 21, 2012

      You two!!! If you triple it, it won’t freeze. Wish I was drinking boozy slushies with you two!

  • June 21, 2012

    YUM! I made too-boozy popsicles one year that didn’t freeze all the way. Yes, boozy slushies are awesome. :)

  • June 21, 2012

    I found you via Maggie’s Farm…These look amazing! It is 98 degrees today in NYC…I hope to make these soon! Thank you!

  • Ooooh, so much more fun than store-bought popsicles! I love this idea!

  • June 21, 2012

    These look so amazing!

  • June 26, 2012

    A different idea for boozy pops: beer? Like this? http://www.sweet-remedy.com/2012/06/cherry-wheat-beer-popsicles-for-your-dad/

    They would be great for a barbecue!

  • Hunter

    These look deelicious! What about trying bourbon??

  • Carolyn
    April 22, 2013

    I’d like to add flavored rum to juice from concentrate. The syrup concentrate must have added to it 3 cans of water to make it a juice. How much rum may I add to the juice so that it can be frozen in popsicle form and still have a “punch”.

    I’d like to make them in bulk for my customers.

    Thanks for a response.
