Spiked Cherry Limeade Slushsicle is another addition to our growing list of frozen adult beverages. The original slushsicle is our most popular recipe on Pinterest.
This one does not contain any cream of coconut, so the amount of alcohol you add will have a definite effect on the texture of this slushsicle. This one will turn out more solid than the original.
This one tastes like the refreshing cherry limeade drinks available at so many fast food restaurants and gas station soda fountains. Except this one is made with vodka.
The recipe provided will produce a solid ice pop. If you prefer a more slush-like product, increase the amount of vodka.
If you intend to use more vodka, I would use one that has a clean and crisp taste. I use Rain Vodka. I do not use it because it is gluten-free or organic, I use it because it is filtered 7 times. It does not affect the flavoring in these ice pops as other vodkas might.
Before freezing the spiked cherry limeade ice pops, taste the unfrozen version. The last thing you want to do is spend 24 to 48 hours getting ice pops ready for a party only to learn during your event that the ice pops taste overwhelmingly of vodka.
Cherry limeade flavoring is easily overpowered by alcohol. There is a fine line on this one.
We always start with the basic dilution equation and then change the ingredient based on the texture, and flavors, we are aiming for. You can read all about basic dilution on Wikipedia.
If you decide to experiment, just remember you are going to need 24 to 48 hours to know the full results of the recipe. Start experimenting well in advance of any parties you are planning to serve spiked ice pops at.
Alternatively, you can use one of our recipes since we have already wasted a ton of perfectly good booze learning the ropes!
- 2 cups lemon-lime soda, flattened
- 2 tablespoons lime juice
- 1/2 cup grenadine
- 3/4 cup vodka
Mix all ingredients together in a bowl, stir until well combined and all fizzing from soda has stopped. Pour into ice pop sleeve up to the fill line. Place upright into a tall cup. Place into the coldest part of the freezer and allow to freeze at least overnight.
Soda can be flattened by allowing to sit open overnight. Alternatively, pour soda from one cup to another until carbonation is gone.
Slushsicles may be stored on their sides, in a baggie, once frozen.
We use disposable 3-ounce zip-top freezer bags.
