Boozy Popsicles Make Summer Bright
Recipes
by Beth Kaiserman

It’s hot, but you still want a cocktail. Why not make it an icy, tasty delight with a boozy popsicle? Combining seasonal flavors, it’s easy to make quick frozen treats for a party - or all for yourself after a long summer day.

Put your freezer on high and dig into these cool treats. Since alcohol doesn’t freeze, the more that’s in there, the less frozen your treats will be. Keep this in mind if you adjust the amounts!
