Summer has begun with a bang here – it already hit 100°F over the weekend. Clearly, trips to the lake, BBQs, and frozen treats are in order. There’s nothing better than a lazy summer weekend by the water with a frosty drink or refreshing popsicle in hand. Now, combine cocktails + popsicles (does “poptails” sound too ridiculous?), and you’ve really got something. I made some mojito popsicles a couple of summers ago, so it’s way past time to try a new poptail (yeah, it sounds a little ridiculous to me).
Bacardi has a line of light classic cocktails and sent me a bottle of strawberry daiquiri to try. It’s already mixed up right in the bottle (and only 95 calories a serving!), which makes it so easy, especially for entertaining. I tried freezing straight daiquiri, but it didn’t fully freeze – although, if you want a slushie consistency, try it out. You couldn’t get it any easier than that, and slushie daiquiris sound pretty amazing.
However, I wanted to make popsicles, so I added pineapple juice to the strawberry daiquiri and froze it in my popsicle mold. Tropical strawberry daiquiri popsicles were born! You could make this with lots of other juices too: guava, mango, papaya…or skip the “tropical” and try out orange or lemonade. What flavors would you try out?
- Bacardi Classic Cocktails Light – Strawberry Daiquiri
- Pineapple juice (or your favorite tropical flavor – guava, papaya, or mango would all be good)
- Add equal parts of daiquiri and fruit juice to a bowl and stir to combine.
- Pour into popsicle mold and add popsicle stick.
- Place in freezer until fully frozen.
