Happy Friday lovely people! It’s my Birthday on Sunday and I’m throwing a little mini party with the girls at my house before we head out for a night on the town, I always look forward to this every year, coming up with fun ideas for the little pre drinks session! This time I thought it would be cute to make a bunch of boozy alcoholic ice pops that I can keep in an ice bucket and everyone can help themselves to! Please be sunny tomorrow….PLEASE! Here’s how you can make a bunch of the same ones I’ve made…

TEQUILA SUNRISE

First up is the tequila sunrise! Now don’t cringe, I know some of you hate tequila but this one really is delicious, it’s got fresh blended pineapple inside and who can resist the pretty ombre effect it makes on the ice pop!

YOU WILL NEED (MAKES 12 ICE LOLLIES):

3/4 Cup tequila // 2 cups of pineapple juice // 1lb fresh pineapple, peeled and blended // 1/4 cup grenadine //

STEP 1.

Combine the blended fresh pineapple, pineapple juice and the tequila into a jug and stir well.

STEP 2:

Fill the ice pop moulds about 3/4 full (my moulds had a little fill line on them which was really helpful!)

STEP 3:

Finally, pour about one 1 teaspoon of grenadine into each pop and allow it to sink to the bottom of the pop. Then press it into the bottom of the mould and give it a little mix at the bottom by massaging the bottom half of the lolly to create the ombre effect! Then quickly pop them in the freezer!

BLUE LAGOON

If you’re already dreaming of the weekend then today’s recipe is for you! Lauren is here from Toast From The Host sharing with us how to make these delicious boozy adult popsicles and since the weather seems to be well and truly settling into Spring now is the perfect time to whip up a batch! Over to Lauren…

My love for childhood treats has stuck with me…even outside of childhood. Hence my love for cotton candy and amping it up to create alcoholic cotton candy. It has always been fun to create something new in the kitchen. As summer time is rolling around, here in Texas, we need anything to help cool off. Here comes some boozy popsicles to help beat the heat and a great backyard kickback treat!

Woo! Happy Friday guys! If you’re planning on having a beverage or two this evening or maybe you’re throwing a little party then why not make these fun edible glitter ice cubes?! They’re the perfect way to add that extra sparkle and glitz to any event! You can’t deny that they would be awesome for a hen / bachelorette party right?! Over to Holly from Club Crafted to share how to make them…

Hey there! I, Holly, am not afraid of glitter. While I try not to go overboard, I’m not afraid to make a mess and use it in my craft projects and even some of my baked goods. Edible glitter is the perfect topping for cakes, cake pops, chocolate candies and so much more to add color and sparkle. That’s when I thought, I just need a way to add glitter to my drinks now! Edible glitter ice cubes were the answer to adding some flair to any drink without changing the taste.

Because edible glitter is essentially pure sugar, simply be aware that, depending on the amount used, it may increase the sweetness of your drink. I used my favorite silicone gem mold to create the ice cubes and then added the sugar. When added to liquid, the edible glitter slowly melts and changes the color of the liquid, which creates a pretty effect when using multiple colors. Because the glitter dissolves in liquid, it’s important to wait to add the glitter until after the water has frozen into ice. Otherwise, you’ll have colored ice cubes that are no longer glittery.

YOU WILL NEED:

Filtered water // Ice tray or silicone mould // Edible glitter //

STEP 1:

Pour filtered water into an ice tray or silicone mold. Move to the freezer to solidify completely.
