Vodka Cranberry Popsicle Recipe

Once I declared 2011 The Year of the Popsiclemy Popsicle making experiments are going well. I am getting kiddos that hate anything remotely healthy to eat my variations of juice and fruit pops, which makes me happy.

Now it is time for something more a bit more grown up Vodka Popsicles!

Oh yes, my friends, I'm ready to teach you how to make booze infused Popsicles because I can't invite you over for a BBQ and a taste of my delicious experiment. I would if I could but my yard is too small to host of all you.


The BPA free ice pop molds I have are discontinued. The next closest thing I can find is the  Nuby Garden Fresh Fruitsicle Frozen Pop Tray . I like these Popsicle molds better because they come with a tray so the molds don't flop all over the freezer. I can color code the Popsicle so I know which ones are for grown ups only.

I tried and failed throughout the summer to get the perfect combination of juice and alcohol that will properly freeze. I finally came up with a recipe that doesn’t have as much alcohol in it as a traditional mixed drink but it will freeze into a Popsicle and not melt immediately when removed from the Popsicle mold. I know it’s there and sometimes that’s all that matters when you’re treating yourself and girlfriends with a covert frozen adult beverage.

1 cup of cranberry juice

1 splash of lime juice to taste

2 teaspoons of vodka

1. Mix the cranberry juice, lime juice, and vodka together in a bowl or large measuring cup.

2. Pour the cranberry mixture into a Popsicle mold.

3. Put the Popsicle molds in the freezer and wait and wait and wait until the cranberry vodka Popsicles freeze solid.

4. Once the Popsicles freeze completely, remove from the mold and enjoy!
