5 Important Tips for Popsicles

  1. When making drizzled popsicles, it’s very important to stick to the recipe and resist the urge (yes very tempting!) to add more alcohol because alcohol doesn’t freeze, and you’ll end up with a very melting cocktail in an ice lolly. mold.
  2. A good ratio to keep in mind is 1 part alcohol and 5 parts non-alcohol, which is less than in a typical cocktail – you shouldn’t just try freezing your favorite drinks unmodified (if you want increase the alcohol, you can always dip the ice in a glass of rose or champagne! Or just pour yourself a glass!).
  3. Sugar also keeps things from freezing, so it’s important to have unsweetened elements in a cocktail (like water, fresh juices, dairy, etc.)
  4. If you have trouble releasing the popsicles from the molds, soak the bottom in warm water for a few seconds.
  5. If you don’t have popsicle molds, use paper cups or popsicle molds.
