I scream, you scream, we all scream for popsicles

That's right. Just recently my friend and I made a day trip to Charlotte. I am not sure if it was the sudden heat wave or the pure exhaustion of day shopping but the entire way home we whined for an alcoholic sno-cone. We were on the smart phones furiously searching for any place that would serve such a concoction. Fail. Defeat. We realized we were just going to have to make them ourselves. Since we are not fortunate enough to own a Snoopy Sno-Cone machine, popsicles it must be. I don't know what it is about this time of year but I start jonesing for various flavor combination homemade popsicles. Now some of you may be so lucky to have the Zoku popsicle maker while I have the chic Wal-mart version. Roll back? Yes. Hey, it gets the job done. In the summer I find myself throwing any fruit combination into the blender and pureeing to an oblivion. Delight. So the loveliest part about making all of these popsicles at home is that you can carelessly add a splash of your favorite spirit into the mix. Voila! You ask for an alcoholic popsicle and an alcoholic popsicle we shall have.

  6. Fruit popsicles are my favorite summer snack! Adding alcohol to them... bonus! I've seen the zoku in homegoods/tjmax, now I definitely need it!

  7. LOL -- I love the "alcoholic popsicles!" But the delivery of alcohol into the system might be to slow for me for some days.... ;)

  9. So funny...Jayme & I were just obsessing over margarita popsicles yesterday. Unfortunately it was at around 11am while we were at work, so that's a craving left unsatisfied. For now. But probably not for long. ;)
