Try any of these 5 Great Ice Pop Cocktails to impress your friends this year. Easy to make and a fun way to add some flair to your drinks.

It’s not summer just yet but you can get started on these ice pop cocktails anyway. Offer anyone a drink combined with a sweet treat and they simply can’t refuse.

Popsicles or ice pops with alcohol have been trending for a few years but these are a little bit different. The main thing is that there is no alcohol in the ice pops. That’s for two reasons. First alcohol doesn’t freeze that good. I want the ice pops to help keep the drink really cold, if it melts too fast it won’t.

Secondly if you have children or a friend or two who doesn’t drink you can easily offer them a great drink with an ice pop anyway. I promise they will greatly appreciate it.

All these five recipes will start with the ice pop. Make a bunch while you’re at it. It takes just as long to make two or three as it does to make ten. Also these ice pops are a little less sweet than regular ice pops. So if you love sweet drinks you can increase the sugar a little bit.

This first one works great on a hot day. It comes with plenty of lemon, a touch of honey and a bit of fresh thyme to make it interesting.

2 parts simple syrup (1 part sugar + 1 part water)

Bring the water and sugar to a boil. Set aside and leave to cool. Squeeze lemons and add to the simple syrup. Whisk together and freeze.

Jalapeno Mint Julep Ice Pop Cocktail

This drink is not really a Mint Julep but it has lot’s of bourbon and mint in it so the flavor is similar. The jalapeno in the ice pop and drink adds a nice kick. It’s not very hot when you drink it but when you bite down on a slice you’ll feel it.

Jalapeno Lime Lemon Ice Pop
2 parts lime juice
2 parts lemon juice
3 parts jalapeno syrup (1 part sugar + 1 part water + jalapeno)

The recipe is in parts. To get the right strength I used one fresh jalapeno with the seeds kept for a little over one cup of finished product.

Squeeze limes and lemons to get the juice. Set aside. Slice a jalapeno thin. Bring sugar and water to a boil, leave to cool. Add the jalapeno syrup and lime and lemon juice. Save the jalapeno syrup and a few slices of jalapeno in it.

Before you freeze the ice pops you can pick out a few slices of jalapeno and place them on the inside of the ice pop mould. This way they will stick and be more evenly distributed on the ice pop. Then add the ice pop juice and freeze.

This is more of a short drink, I love the peach and bourbon together so this drink works great even without the ice pop. Actually all of them do. But they’re more fun with an ice pop.
