Summer Cocktail Series: Poptails (Boozy Popsicles)

Summer Cocktail Series Poptails


This week for our Summer Cocktail Series, we’re featuring something cool, sweet, and downright delicious: boozy popsicles, or “poptails,” as the hip kids call them. The ones you see here we made and enjoyed right here in the KegWorks kitchen just yesterday.

They are truly delectable. But don’t just take our word for it. Get the tools and ingredients you need, and start your own batch of Mixed Berry Vodka Popsicles today!


  • 16 oz. Limeade
  • 6 oz. Vodka
  • ¾ cup Raspberries
  • ¾ cup Blueberries
  • ¼ cup Blackberries

Tools Needed

Poptail tools and ingredients


Preparation Instructions

1.) Place limeade, raspberries, blueberries, blackberries, and vodka in a food processor or blender and process or blend until pureed (about 1-2 minutes).

Blending Ingredients

2.) Pour strained mixture into popsicle molds, freeze for about two hours, then insert sticks.

3.) Put the molds back in the freezer for about five hours (or until the molds are completely solid).

Frozen and ready to enjoy


4.) To release popsicles, run hot water on the outside of popsicle molds for  2-3 seconds, then enjoy!


As you can now see, these are super easy to make, and they truly are awesome. We actually just ate a couple in the office before we published this post. (Don’t judge us – we know it’s 10am, but it’s Friday, and we don’t like to waste!) 

For some added boozy frozen fun, check out the Cool Shooters Ice Shot Glass Molds. We used the leftover limeade to make the ones you see below, and those were pretty delicious too. Just be sure to use them quickly after taking them out of the freezer!

    So strain the liquid first, or just blend and pour?

      Hey Eric,

      You can strain the mixture if you want to avoid seeds. But it will work either way!

    Have you tried making a margarita this way?
