Jack Frost and Cranberry Daiquiri are turned into fun grown-up party treats. Try serving them at your next pool party for a refreshing individual alcohol ice pop.
Change up the juice in either recipe to change up the flavor.
Slushsicles do not freeze as solid as popsicles, more like a semi-frozen cocktail.
The reason for this is because of the freezing point of alcohol. The more juice you add, the more solid they become, as it reduces the amount of alcohol.
Newair explains this well in an article about frozen beers.
You can freeze just about any mixed drink you like, provided it has a low enough alcohol content.
Alcohol is right at its upper limit in these, which is why they are somewhere between slushies and popsicles.
Using the amounts listed in my recipes will give you a semi-solid end product. Hence, the name slushsicle. It will be more solid than a slushie, but not quite as solid as a popsicle.
If you want your adult ice pops to be more like an otter pop, you need to up the juices, lower the alcohol, or turn your freezer temperature way down.
Slushsicles should be placed in an upright position and left until frozen solid.
I recommend storing these in a freezer rather than a cooler. If I had to store these in a cooler I would be using dry ice and placing a light layer of fabric or paper towels to prevent them from sticking to the dry ice.
The brand of Popsicle sleeves we use is Zipzicle and can be purchased in a 36 pack or in a pack of 100.
Since this is a specialty item I can’t pick up at the store easily, I buy the 100 pack so I always have them on hand. This can be used to freeze yogurt, fruit juice, just about anything.
Whatever plastic sleeves you choose to use, you need to make sure that there will be no leaching of toxic chemicals when exposed to alcohol.
Please treat these treats with the same respect as any other alcoholic beverage. Do not drink and drive and consume always consume responsibly.
Slushsicles can sneak up on you, every ice pop has the same amount of alcohol as one mixed drink.
