At some point in their lives, every adult wants to wants to be a kid again! I love this simple recipe because it allows adults to act like kids with adult privileges. These Moscow Mule Popsicles are bursting with flavor and really the best of both worlds.
These boozy popsicles, concocted with ginger beer and vodka and flavored with lime and honey, are a fun and refreshing option for a barbecue, mid-day lunch, or a dinner party.
It’s fun to surprise guests with this icy treat with a punch! Psssst, this may be obvious, but you may want to make sure the kids don’t get ahold of these when you pull them out of the freezer! And with just a few ingredients needed to make these adult popsicles, you can make a batch so easily.
When you are being a kid again, the last thing you want to do is work! So, one of my favorite things about this recipe is that you can whip up a delightful treat to serve with very little effort! They takes just about 40 minutes to make.
Most of that time you will be creating a flavorful ginger simple syrup by letting ginger seep in sugary water for about 30 minutes. Creating homemade simple syrup is as easy as combining sugar, water and whatever other flavors, like ginger, you want together.
Don’t forget that they need to freeze overnight, so plan ahead and make these the day before.
If you are still unsure about this recipe because you don’t know how to serve popsicles to adults, it’s simple! You can easily make them look sophisticated and appealing by pouring them into clear popsicle sleeves and arranging them in a pretty container just before serving.
I order the clear sleeves from Amazon but they also freeze well in classic popsicle molds.
These boozy popsicles are the perfect answer to summer’s super hot days and nights. Just keep your freezer stocked and you are always ready.
