Summer is on its way and that means warmer temperatures and a lot more time to relax. Fun in the sun, of course, also means it’s time to find yummy ways of mixing up cocktails. This year, why not bring back an old childhood favorite and make it a bit more adult?
If you don’t want to put in the effort yourself, you can now find the ultimate in poolside drinks at most liquor stores: Skinny Freezers by Slim Chillers. These alcoholic popsicles combine the best summer treat of your childhood with, well — vodka. Now that’s a great way to relax at the end of a long day!
These tasty popsicles come in a range of different flavors.
These include lemon drop, appletini, cosmopolitan, and watermelon lemonade. Each one is only 100 calories, so you can relax and enjoy time by the pool without worrying about overindulging!
Of course, you may want to make sure you’re not overindulging in a different way.
Each popsicle has 8 percent alcohol volume, so don’t enjoy too many all at once!
Skinny Freezers are made from eight-times distilled and charcoal-filtered vodka, making for a fruity poolside snack that will also give you a buzz.
If you prefer drinks over popsicles, you can find blender mixes from Slim Chillers as well.
These come in a variety of different flavors and are ready to be mixed with tequila. You can choose from strawberry lemonade, original margarita, peach mango, or pomegranate.
Of course, if you prefer to whip up your own boozy popsicles, there’s no end to recipes online.
“They’re super popular on Pinterest right now,” read an article from Country Living back in 2016. “In fact, searches for ‘boozy popsicles’ have increased 68 percent since last year.”
It’s no wonder that people love the idea: ‘poptails’, as they’re sometimes called, offer an endless variety of sweet frozen treats that also have a kick.
For example, you could try this recipe for lemonade moonshine popsicles, which will definitely up the relaxation level around the pool.
“Anyway, I’m going to keep this short and sweet,” wrote cookbook author and blogger Christina Lane about these delicious popsicles. “It’s hot. You need lemonade. It’s a holiday weekend. You need moonshine. You with me? It’s a stick-up! (Get it? Sorry).”
This recipe involves a little bit of actual cookery.
This includes boiling your homemade lemonade along with your moonshine and some lemon zest. Of course, making popsicles at home means that you might not know exactly how much booze you’re getting, so enjoy with caution!
Another boozy cocktail that involves a little less cooking is this yummy strawberry Moscato popsicle.
This one can be thrown together in just a few hours before you hit the pool. You’ll just need to blend 1.5 cups of strawberries, two cups of peaches, one tablespoon and one teaspoon of sugar, 2.25 cups of Moscato, and a couple of squirts of lemon juice. Throw them in the freezer and you have a yummy — and classy — treat to enjoy by the pool.
Who said adults can’t have popsicles, too?
