Aaaaaand the boozy popsicle journey continues with Pimm’s Cup Popsicles. If you’re a fan the Pimm’s Cup Cocktail,  you’ll love this frozen treat. It’s super refreshing and packs a ton of flavor. You’ll enjoy how cold it is on a hot day. Cocktail on a stick!

In this recipe, I added a few slices of cucumber & strawberries to the pop. So at the very end you get a nice little frozen treat. I also used Ginger Beer because that’s what I had in our fridge. You may use ginger ale if you please! If you’re wanting to mask some of the booze and make it sweet a simple syrup will do the trick. Maybe even a mint one…oooh!

And if you don’t have popsicle molds, make a simple granita!

You can see how to do it with this delicious Frozen Cappuccino recipe I made last summer. I imagine it to be like a grownup slushee. Mmmm.

And we’re off!

It’s simple! Here are the ingredients. Water is missing in this equation.

Mix Pimm’s No. 1 with FLAT ginger beer and water. (Just open your ginger beer the night before & pop it in the fridge)

Squeeze a little lemon in there. One or two squeezes is just fine.

Put a slice of cucumber on the bottom of each popsicle mold & add a few slices of strawberries too.

    I am officially the only person who’s never had Pimms and in every foodie magazine (and now your site) I see it…and I am craving something Ive never had. These are beauties, Tracy!

    This is such an awesome American spin on a British classic. The brits sip their Pimms cup at the polo, and you turn that into a Popsicle. USA! USA!

    Why haven’t I tried a Pimm’s Cup yet?? Love the fresh fruit and cuke in these pops.

  • July 3, 2013

    So cute!

  • Sayyyy what?! Gimme those boozy Susan sicles!

  • Pimms is an absolute institution here in England, no wedding or summer social event is complete without it! Always with lemonade though, I never thought of adding ginger beer. Best go and try it out immediately!

  • July 3, 2013

    I’m kind of on the fence about Pimm’s Cup. But! I’ll keep trying to like it because I have a lot of it left. This idea sounds like a winner.

  • I’ve never tried a Pimm’s Cup before but now I HAVE TO because, popsicles. Yes to this!

  • July 3, 2013

    GENIUS! Can’t wait to try these!

  • These are some weird looking tampons. I’m confused. Yikes. Awkward. ;) (In all seriousness, yes…i’m making these. Also, 8th grade girls are cray to the cray in a serious way. Rhyme intentional. I’ve been listening to a lot of Salt N’ Pepa lately. #SorryNotSorry. #KindaSorry.)

    PIMM’S! Hooray! These popsicles sound perfect–although I would definitely be in the granita boat due to lack of molds. But that’s ok! I think a trip to the liquor store is in my future… :)

  • July 3, 2013

    Pimms’s Cup? Yes! I had my first on vacation in New Orleans last July. I had 3 more when I went back in October for Halloween. I am craving one at this very moment! Those pops look amazing!

  • Amazing!!! I wanna chomp on one of these right now! It feels like a Friday anyway so cocktail-sicles are definitely in order!

  • July 3, 2013

    BRILLIANT!

  • How could you not love this combination – drunken popsicles are the best!

  • Pimmtastic!! Ace, thanks for the sweet recipe.

    Hi Tracy- where’d you get your popsicle mold from? I’ve purchased several and they all suck in one way or another. Recommendations?

  • July 4, 2013

    Why have I never tried Pimms before? Have to change that, ASAP!

  • July 4, 2013

    Hmmm, that looks interesting. I, too, have never had Pimm’s.

  • July 5, 2013

    Another one wondering where you got your molds. I like them better than any I’ve seen…
    Also: Pimm’s pops? BRILLIANT. I think you’ve outdone yourself here.

      There are links in the post. I got them off of Amazon! :)

  • July 6, 2013

    I love Pimms! While I didn’t think it could get better than a Pimms cup, these popsicles look gosh darn delicious. Is it Pimms o’clock yet? :)

  • July 8, 2013

    I had my first Pimm’s Cup in New Orleans, right before Mardi Gras. I totally fell in love with it. And now that it is hotter than hades where I live, I can’t think of a better way to serve this than frozen. It looks great!

    Good call, thumbs up from a limey. Mint is not optional IMHO.

      It is if you don’t have any on hand ;)

  • January 8, 2014

    Wow. How did I miss these!!!

  • I just recently discovered Pimm’s Cups and they are amazing! It’s also amazing how each bar makes them slightly different. Great recipe!

      The worst is when you go to a bar that doesn’t know how to make them!!! :(
