Boozy popsicles are the perfect way to cool down during the summer while also enjoying a tasty cocktail! Watermelon mint moscow mule popsicles will become your new favorite summer drink from the moment you take a bite.
Have you tried boozy popsicles yet? We were obsessed from the moment we made wine slushie popsicles and these watermelon mint moscow mule popsicles just furthered the obsession!
So, obviously, one of the most important things for these popsicles are the popsicle sleeves. You can definitely use popsicle molds if you have them but I love the disposable sleeves!
I put a few slices of fresh watermelon in the sleeves before pouring in the liquid which gives them the perfect amount of watermelon flavor and adds some texture too. You could add crushed mints leaves as well if you want.
The extra watermelon pieces also help give the popsicles the fun pink color you see in the photos. My husband doesn’t like “chunky” popsicles though so I leave it out of his.
These are absolutely perfect for parties because you can make them in advance and toss them the cooler for guests to grab and enjoy whenever. Plus, there is nothing like a refreshing popsicle on a hot summer day!
Just be sure to label your boozy popsicles well so they don’t get confused with the kid version that is so popular!
A few things to remember when making boozy popsicles:
- Be careful not to use too much alcohol. I know that sounds crazy because everyone loves a STRONG drink. But, if you use too much alcohol, your popsicles won’t freeze.
- Freeze these for at least a day. I actually recommend making them a few days in advance. If you have a deep freezer, that works even better.
- Because of the alcohol, these are going to melt faster than your regular popsicles. So, keep them in the freezer (or buried in ice) until you are ready to eat them.
