Summertime Pops.

boozy popsicles sex on the beach summertime snack treat

Summertime is here, the sun is bright and the flowers are blooming filling the air in the city with fresh smells. While browsing around the wide internet for the perfect cool down snack, we stumbled across these beautifully colored and delicious popsicles from Endless Simmer. Here’s what you need to create this wondrous treat:

12 oz. pineapple ( about half of a large pineapple)
3 oz. raspberries (about 13 regular-size raspberries)
4 oz. vodka
2 oz. Pama Pomegrante liqueur
(makes 10 popsicles)

The how-to:

1. Place the pineapple and vodka in a food processor or a blender and process until pureed and well blended. Set aside.

2. Place raspberry and Pama Liqueur in the food processor or a blender and process until pureed and well blended.

3. Pour 1/2 oz of pineapple mixture into each popsicle well,  then pour 1 oz of rasberry mixture on top of it.  Fill remainder of the popsicle wells with pineapple mixture. Use the narrow handle of a spoon or fork to gently drag raspberry mixture through the pineapple mixture and against the walls of the mold for a soft swirling effect.

4. Place foil on top of popsicle form and cut a tiny hole in the center of each well. Stick popsicle stick through the hole. Freeze for at least 6 hours or until frozen solid. To release popsicles, run hot water on the outside of popsicle molds for 2-3 seconds.

Step One: Painting is a girl’s best friend.

Wet your paintbrush with just a touch of paint on it and lightly wet the coffee filter around the edges. Add color as you see fit. Tip: The more water you add / the more you dilute your paint, the more of a water-colored look you will achieve. Try to pick up different hues on your brush at one time as it will give you splotches of paint on your filter while painting (oh-so-pretty!).

Step Two: Sittin’ Waitin’ Wishin’

 Wait for the filters to completely dry.
