Do you have a popsicle mold?
Boozy popsicles don’t need to be beautiful, so by all means, pick up a pack of wooden popsicle sticks at the grocery store and pop them into any small containers you have around the home. That’ll work.
But I personally can’t make popsicles that way. I need uniformity. I need them to look like traditional popsicles. So I have a couple of molds on hand, and honestly, we use them so frequently in our home that I consider them a worthy investment.
If you’re in the market for a popsicle mold, check out these great options on Amazon.
Silicone molds make popsicle-making a breeze, and there are so many options out there. I like this silicone popsicle mold because the blue and white combo reminds me of vintage milk bottles (?) Random I know, but there you have it.
Everything about these stainless steel popsicle molds feels very retro-ice-cream-truck to me, so I will probably include them in every popsicle article I ever write, ever, because I just really like the look of them.
These psychedelic stick-free popsicle molds are LIT. Have I used that correctly? Are they woke? Are they fam? No? Well, they are pretty groovy. Hashtag showingmyage.
And of course, for the die-hard popsicle fan (or, you know, the disorganised one who doesn’t plan 6 hours ahead of a popsicle craving) there is the popsicle king – the Zoku! This bad boy freezes your popsicles in as little as 7 minutes. So if the urge for boozy popsicles hits mid-dinner-party, it’s totally cool. You can excuse yourself, pull out this whipper snapper, and ply your friends with boozy ice treats before anyone can say “Oh no, we’ve drunk all the wine”.

Why is the rum gone? Because you mixed it into these glorious pineapple-y alcoholic treats, that’s why. And I can’t think of a better use for it, honestly.
Strawberries are the queen of Summer, am I right? And rosé will absolutely be my wine of choice, always and forever, during the hot Summer months. Frozen into an alcoholic ice popsicle? Now you’re talking my language.

I’m about to say something truly controversial, so brace yourself: I really don’t like pina coladas. Like, I almost throw up after just one sip. And it’s not related to any traumatic pina colada-drinking incident in my past or anything. I just can’t hack them, and I’ll never understand why. But.
Mango colada, I can totally get behind. Even more-so in its frozen form.
Yes, I’m aware that this is the second margarita popsicle recipe I’ve included in this round-up. And no, I’m not bothered by it. I mean, margaritas are half-frozen already, right? So they’re clearly MADE to be tweaked a bit and turned into alcoholic ice pops.
I don’t like red wine, but I would definitely enjoy these winesicles. And I mean, I just really like the word winesicle. Winesicle. Now that’s fun.
