How to Make Boozy Popsicles Recipe

These boozy popsicles are the perfect summer treat for adults.  Learn how to make alcoholic popsicles with any juice, so you can make any flavor that you want.  Alcohol infused popsicles are great for parties, or just keep them in the freezer for hot summer nights.

While my kids like their fruit popsicles, I may be known to enjoy spiked popsicles on a summer evening.  I have a base recipe that you can use to make any flavor of alcohol infused popsicles.

I like variety.  I may feel like strawberry one day and pineapple the next.  I also like to mix flavors to make new kinds of spiked popsicles.

Once you learn how to make alcohol popsicles with this recipe, you can use your favorite juice flavors to make different flavors.  

Once your boozy popsicles freeze, you can unmold them and store them in a freezer bag.  Then reuse your mold to make more and have a few different flavors to choose from.

How to Make Boozy Popsicles Recipe

Keep these boozy popsicles away from your kids' popsicles.  I keep them in a bag and label them as mom's pops.  My kids are old enough to read and not get into them.

Make your kids their own pops with one of these delicious recipes:

What Are Booze Pops?

Boozy popsicles are ice pops just for adults.  They are made with juice and a type of alcohol and then frozen like popsicles.

Can You Put Alcohol in Popsicles?

Yes, you can put alcohol in popsicles to make alcohol infused popsicles.  Alcohol has a lower freezing point than water (juice), so you will need to use the right ratio of alcohol to water (juice).

What Alcohol is Best for Popsicles?

You can use any alcohol when you learn how to make alcohol popsicles.  Vodka is perhaps the most popular because it doesn't have a flavor.

You can also use rum, tequila, or other alcohol.  It just depends on the flavor of the juice that you use and what flavor you want to end up with in your boozy popsicle recipe.

For these spiked popsicles, it's best to use an 80 to 90 proof alcohol.  This will help prevent math when you calculate how much to use.

How Much Alcohol Can You Put in Spiked Popsicles?

Alcohol has a lower freezing point than water.  The juice is mainly water, so it will freeze at 32 degrees Fahrenheit.  

When you learn how to make alcohol popsicles, you want to use a ratio that will give you a popsicle without the alcohol and juice separating and turning into a slushie. 

For the best boozy popsicle recipe, you'll want to use 5 parts of juice to 1 part of alcohol.  This will give you about 5 to 10 percent alcohol in your boozy popsicles so they will freeze well.

This is based on a 40 to 45 percent alcohol or 80 to 90 proof.

Can You Freeze Wine Into Popsicles?

Yes, you can use wine for spiked popsicles.  However, wine has a lower alcohol concentration.  You can use wine and water or juice 1 to 1 for more wines.

How Long Does it Take Alcohol Popsicles to Freeze?

This depends on the mold that you use, but your alcohol infused popsicles should freeze in about four to six hours.  However, I let them freeze all night just to make sure.

Spiked Popsicles Molds

I used 4 ounce disposable cups as a mold because I wanted to make several kinds at the same time.  However, I really prefer to use a silicone popsicle mold

I like this silicone popsicle mold because I can use my own wooden popsicle sticks.  I've had molds with their own sticks, and they always get lost.

Boozy Popsicles Tips

When you learn how to make alcoholic popsicles, keep these tips in mind:

  • For a high proof liquor, use 5 cups of juice and 1 cup of alcohol.  For lower proofs (below 80), you can use 4 cups of juice to 1 cup of alcohol.
  • Let them freeze overnight for best results.  Then let the popsicle mold sit on the counter for about 10 minutes and unmold.  
  • You can place the spiked popsicles in a freezer bag to freeze them for later.
  • Make sure you label these boozy popsicles!  Keep them away from kids.
  • Get creative with your juice and alcohol.  Try to mimic your favorite drinks or create new ones.
  • Use a low calorie soft drink to reduce calories.
  • For chocolate alcohol infused popsicles, use coconut milk and add 2 tablespoons of cocoa powder for each cup or use chocolate milk. 
  • Blend fruit and use it for part of the juice content.
