As a kid, I was a Creamsicle kinda guy. I could not get enough of those and would rarely stray from their deliciousness. But as an adult, it is a whole other story!
I love my popsicles filled with booze, infused with herbs and sometimes spicy. Green tea, fig, sour cream and tequila are just some of the ingredients that find their way into my tasty pops. So why not try them all?
I was talking with my good friend Ariel over at Whole Foods about New Year’s Eve, and how much fun it would be to toast with a champagne popsicle to ring in the new year. What a swell idea! I been wanting to put a boozy spin on my now famous Pomegranate & Limeade Popsicle, and this seemed like the perfect opportunity.
Okay, I love making popsicles, no surprise there. I’ve been wanting to make a wine popsicle for quite some time. But I wanted one that really showcased the wine. I love using wine as an ingredient but not just to dump it into some sangria with no consideration to the tasting notes. Well I finally found my wine.
This particular recipe is a twist on the first recipe I ever tried out. My first try was this sour cream popsicle with bourbon soaked cherries. And yes, it was as delicious as it sounds. I took them to Dolores Park with some friends on a sunny Sunday afternoon and they were quickly devoured.
Whether you are celebrating Gay Pride from your rooftop or at a neighborhood BBQ, it’s gonna be warm out. So here’s a rainbow of ways to cool off. Besides, it’s Gay Pride…you gotta suck on something!
It’s a lot like a creamsicle but with goat milk. Honey and thyme are used to round out the earthier notes found in the goat cheese but trust me, you’ll never notice. Plus, this thing is bursting with bourbon so who cares, right?
I wanted to create a popsicle that was both cooling and refreshing. And here it is! This pop, with both tomato and jalapeño, is not overly sweet but it is still dessert–trust me. The watermelon makes sure of that. And the heat from the peppers keep it bright and tasty.
These pops are super refreshing. The basil simple syrup makes them bright but the celery and salt tones down the fact that they are much sweeter than my usual recipe. I think you will be surprised.
I remember summertime as a kid, when my day was immediately disrupted by that oh-so-familiar Ice Cream Truck jingle. No matter what I was doing, I made a B-line for that truck. Of course, then I had to run back and beg my mom for money. That said, getting a popsicle was some how magical. And til this day I still think so.
Made with coconut milk and fresh tarragon, the popsicles are creamy (Creamsicle, what?), bright and earthy. They aren’t as sweet as your average popsicle so if you tend to shy away from sweets…this is the dessert for you!
Is it just me, or can you drink like 8 mango lassis every time you go to Indian food also? I just love them. I had been wanting to make them at home for a while but, honestly, just didn’t trust myself around them. I figured in popsicle format it might slow me down a bit? Eh…probably not.
There’s a certain elegance that lavender brings to almost any dish. I displayed this before with my Honey-Lavender Stuffed Strawberries and and had been wanting to rework that combo for a while. Well, I did. Check out these amazing popsicles!
One of my favorites is fresh mango and the way it is prepared at food trucks throughout Mexico. It is so good that it’s hard to believe it is so simple. Fresh mango, cut into strips, is then spritzed with fresh lime juice and dusted with salt and chili powder. How good does that sound?
What is it with the combination of grapefruit and vodka? It just pairs so well together, especially in this boozy popsicle recipe with fresh basil.
Ain’t nothing like a boozy popsicle, right? I sorta feel kid-like having one but in a “I snuck into my parent’s liquor cabinet” kinda way. And this deconstructed kiwi margarita is the perfect way to start!
Celebrate pomegranate season with these tangy popsicles. They are made with fresh pomegranate and homemade limeade. And they are as pretty as they are flavorful.
