Popsicles Aren’t Just for Children
There are new types of popsicle makers, they are able to freeze alcoholic beverages They are fun to make and very simple to do. This post gives you a few new popsicle recipe ideas.
The men in my home don’t want a strawberry yogurt or other plain fruity popsicle but add some rum or gin and I know they will be all over them.
I went searching for a popsicle maker, I wanted one shaped like a fudgesicle. I started at the dollar store and found an old fashioned small sized popsicle maker that’s perfect for children. A popsicle maker for the adult popsicles took a little longer to find.
Eventually I found a new styled Zoku popsicle maker and I am super excited about my new kitchen toy. To use the Zoku keep it in the freezer and when you want popsicles you make them on the counter in a few minutes.

When Hubs is home I will show him the new popsicle maker and make some Corona with Lime slices popsicles. They actually sound very unappealing to me because believe it or not I loathe beer.
To make a Corona Beer popsicles all you need to do is add a slice of lime into the popsicle maker and add the beer. Maybe it will be a new Hubs favorite. I can’t recommend it, because never ever will I try one.
Thinking warm thoughts, you just gotta love summer.
