Homemade Boozy Popsicles

Nothing screams summer like a popsicle or freezie pop. I remember being a kid and putting those sticks of juice in the freezer, waiting patiently while they hardened and snacking on them with our friends like it was our job. Like many childhood snacks, you simply outgrow them, but the memories that came along with them still last.

Well, I’m here today with some good news! We can now enjoy those fun childhood treats, only this time we get our very own adult version! Boozy popsicles are just like a freezie, but they have the addition of vodka, making them a yummy treat with an adult twist.

These are so easy to make, with just 3 steps and a short ingredients list. They are the perfect thing to keep in the freezer for a hot summer day or a girl’s weekend at the cabin. The fresh watermelon juice gives them a sweet, fruity flavor! I know ou’re going to love this refreshing treat.

What are Boozy Popsicles?

Boozy Popsicles were inspired by the Costco Kirkland brand’s ready-to-freeze vodka cocktail packets. They are the adult version of your childhood favorite “freezie pops” and they are so yummy!

You can purchase them in a variety of flavors, but these homemade watermelon freezies are so fresh and delicious. Best of all, they are incredibly easy. Just three steps and you’ve got a fun and tasty adult treat!

Tips for Picking the Perfect Watermelon 

Tip 1: Make sure to get a seedless watermelon.

Tip 2: Pick out a round watermelon, instead of one that is oblong. They tend to be sweeter and not as watery, which is much better for this recipe.

Tip 3: Check your watermelon for a yellow spot. If it has a yellow spot, that is where it sat on the vine. The longer that it sat on the vine, the more yellow the watermelon would be!

Tip 4: The brown spots on a watermelon are good indicators of sweetness. Brown spots show you where the sugar seeps out!

Ingredient Substitutions and Additions

Juice: Instead of making your watermelon juice, you can pick up a container ready to drink at the store. Just make sure there is no added sugar!

Sugar: Try a sip of the watermelon juice before making your recipe. If it’s not sweet enough, add sugar a tablespoon at a time until it’s right for your taste.

Straining: You do not need to strain your watermelon juice, but I would suggest mixing it before pouring into the popsicle molds.

Vodka: We were going for a watermelon flavor, but you can really pick any flavor vodka and juice you like. There are super yummy flavors of infused vodka out there – get creative!

FAQ’S & Tips!

FAQs/Tips:

  • Can I use store-bought watermelon juice? Yes! Just keep an eye that there isn’t any added sugar.
  • What if my watermelon isn’t sweet? Add 1 tablespoon of sugar (or preferred sweetener) at a time until sweet enough.
  • Do I need to strain the juice before freezing? No. You can freeze with the pulp. Just make sure to gently stir it before pouring into the popsicle baggie.

That’s it! These really are that simple. It’s as easy as 1, 2, 3 and you’ve got a delicious cocktail snack that you could pull out of the freezer at a moment’s notice!
