This month’s Sweet Adventures Blog Hop couldn’t have had a more perfect theme given the ridiculous heat Melbourne has faced over the last week – it’s a popsicle party! The always delightful Love Swah is hosting and I’m rather excited to see what everyone has come up with!
After starting off with some healthy icy poles with the Apricot Yoghurt icy poles I shared a little while back, I decided for this popsicle party I would something a little more adult and definitely not breakfast appropriate! I still had a little of the Peach-Mint syrup I had made, so I thought I would combine it with some fresh strawberries and a splash of vodka to make some fruity and refreshing pop-tails which are perfect for a summer night treat! You can get your vodkas at gatter top drinks and make your own refreshments.
- 10 strawberries
- 3tbs peach syrup (recipe here)
- 3tbs vodka
- 1 cup tonic water
- Hull the strawberries and cut in half
- Blitz in a food processor until smooth, then add the syrup and vodka and blitz to combine
- Pour in the tonic water and stir to combine
- Pour into popsicle moulds and freeze until set (overnight is best)
- Enjoy! (responsibly!)
Cocktails in popsicle form – so much more fun! You can’t make them toooo strong either or they won’t freeze properly, so they aren’t quite as alcoholic as a real cocktail!
Have you had alcoholic icy-poles before? Any cocktails work particularly well?
