Fruity White Sangria Pops
It's a snack and a drink all in one! These white sangria ice pops are filled with chunks of fruit, just like real sangria. Trade the wine for grape juice to create an ice pop the kids can enjoy, too!
Boozy Patriotic Pop
It doesn't have to be July to enjoy this refreshing adult treat. Spiked with vodka and blue curacao, these patriotic pops are just as beautiful as they are tasty. Just be sure to put these on the tall dessert table! Small hands and curious minds may think they're kid-friendly.
Nothing says a sweet southern summer more than a peach Bellini. For those days when a refreshing beverage just isn't going to cut it, cool it down a notch with these boozy ice pops. Two-toned and made with real fruit, these delicious treats are best enjoyed poolside with your toes in the water.
Traditional lime or peach margaritas are great, but when you really want to shake things up, slice into a watermelon. The hottest treat to cool you down this summer is a watermelon margarita ice pop, and we couldn't be more excited. Made with a hint of lime and mint, this unique flavor will be the hit of the party.
Mimosa Ice Pops
Mimosas aren't just for bottomless brunches anymore. These clever frozen ice pops took the drink we love most about brunch and turned it into a snack we can enjoy any time of day. Serve with sliced strawberries for a table worthy of an Instagram photoshoot.
Red Wine Ice Pops
It takes just three ingredients to turn your favorite glass of red wine into a summertime treat. Cook up a batch of these boozy ice pops for your next pool party, or serve them as the perfect ending to a neighborhood barbecue.
For classier occasions, guests dressed to the nines probably don't want to be served a dessert that melts down their hands. Give your boozy ice pops an elegant upgrade by serving them up in a cocktail or wine glass. These were made in ice pop molds and then transferred to a glass with a splash of prosecco.
Chocolate-Dipped Pina Colada
As if a regular pina colada ice pop isn't good enough, this one is dipped in chocolate and sprinkled with coconut shavings. Made with lots of yummy pineapple and a generous amount of whipped topping, this creamy ice pop stands out against its fruity competitors.
Act like a kid again by enjoying your favorite summertime sips in a nostalgic way. You can now purchase resealable plastic bags in tube form to make your very own juice pop creations at home. Here, a blend of strawberries and pink moscato creates a perfectly sweet ice pop for sizzling summer days. Just make sure the kids know these are off-limits!
Raspberry and Lime Sangria
Sangria is possibly our favorite reason to go to happy hour. Make any time 5:00 p.m. by keeping these tasty sangria ice pops in your freezer this summer. Aside from their stunning ombre look, these ice pops taste delicious. The flavor changes as you work your way down the treat, ending with a lime wedge frozen at the bottom.
