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

This one is for the vodka fans and I absolutely adore the colour of this one! It’s a beautiful shade of blue and really POPS against the other ice lollies!

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!

Inspired by nature’s color palette as Summer transitions to Fall, an Indian Summer has the beauty of both seasons rolled into one. What better way to celebrate the couple of the hour than with a bright and playful afternoon outside serving margaritas and throwing confetti? We asked Megan of Coppola Creative to tell us more about her vision for today’s styled shoot.
