Stay Cool With These Boozy Popsicle Recipes

You’ll be the hit of any summer party with these boozy, cocktail-inspired popsicles! The only things standing between you and these tasty treats are the proper tools and a handful of ingredients you might already have on-hand. You’ll need a set of 10 popsicle molds, popsicle sticks (if they aren’t already built into the molds), and the ingredients to make your boozy popsicle recipe of choice.

Blueberry Mojito Popsicles

These rum-infused mojito pops are a great way to cool off on a hot day. Adjust the flavors to your taste by substituting the blueberries for your favorite mojito ingredients, and if you end up with any leftover popsicle mixture, try pouring them in an ice cube tray and serving with a matching pitcher of mojitos.


In a small saucepan, combine ½ cup of sugar with ½ cup of water to make a simple syrup. Toss in a large handful of mint leaves and heat the mixture on the stove until the sugar completely dissolves. Let it cool to room temperature.

Once cooled, strain out the mint, then transfer the strained simple syrup to a large bowl. Mix in ¾ cup of lime juice and 6 tablespoons of light rum.

Pour the mixture into popsicle molds, up to about ¾ full, then add a mint leaf and blueberries to each popsicle, followed by the popsicle sticks. For best results, freeze overnight.

Rosé Sangria Ice Pops

Rosé traditionally pairs well with sunny patios and good company. This recipe is a crowd pleaser and easy to throw together. It combines fresh strawberry slices and dry rosé with the same simple syrup base that is used in the mojito popsicles recipe.


Combine simple syrup with 2 cups of dry rosé, adding a tablespoon of syrup at a time to your preferred level of sweetness.  

Pour the sweetened wine into popsicle molds up to ¾ full and add 2-3 strawberry slices (or your fruit of choice) to each popsicle. Add popsicle sticks and freeze overnight before enjoying.

Irish Coffee Popsicles

Vanilla cream, iced coffee, and boozy Irish cream make up the layers of these decadent Irish coffee popsicles. This recipe takes a little extra time to freeze each layer, so plan accordingly. To make these treats alcohol-free, simply swap out the Irish cream layer with another vanilla cream layer and you’ll have yourself a sweet way to start the day!


To make the vanilla cream, stir together 1 cup of cream with ¼ cup of sugar until the sugar fully dissolves. Infuse the cream with a whole vanilla pod in the fridge for at least 2 hours.

While the vanilla infuses, stir together 2 cups of cold brew coffee and 1 cup of sugar. 

For the boozy layer, combine 1 cup of cream with a shot of Irish cream liqueur, to taste.

Distribute the vanilla cream among the popsicle molds, then freeze the molds for at least 2 hours. Once the first layer is fairly solid, add the coffee mixture and the popsicle sticks, then freeze again. Finally, layer on the Irish cream, filling the molds almost to the top before popping them back in the freezer for at least another 4 hours.

All of these popsicles will stay fresh for weeks in the freezer, making them a perfect treat to stash away in the freezer for warm evenings in the sunshine.
