Bahama Mama Ice Pops – Refreshing, boozy treats made with pineapple juice, orange juice, and rum!
Move over kiddos, these are for the big kids! Mommy’s popsicles is what I like to call them…
Hi Hi, friends!! Is this not the most perfect Friday snack? Even though it’s not even Friday, yet? Gives us something to look forward to! These cold, refreshing, and boozy pops are my favorite of all the favorites!
This boozy popsicle deal all started with an Amazon purchase… I love that place! Seriously. I could spend my life savings on Amazon, but I’m better than that! …I believe…
Among many, many other things, last month I purchased these popsicle mold bags with a funnel and got to work as soon as they arrived.
The idea for this delicious treat is definitely not mine and belongs to the creative team over at BHG. I tried to make my own margarita-ice-pops and mojito-pops, but the sugary fruit juice to alcohol ratio was something I could not get 100% right. BUT I WILL!
Alcohol has a lower freezing point than fruit juice and it’s much lower than our home freezers can manage. Even a little booze will interfere with the way popsicles freeze and too much alcohol will keep our ice pops in a permanent state of slush. Until I figure it all out, we’ll be chilling with these perfectly perfect Bahama Mama Ice Pops. It’s a pretty good deal to chill with – I promise!
Having said that, there are many ways to enjoy boozy ice pops, with different flavors and alcohol, but here we are going to focus on combining pineapple juice, orange juice, and rum. Coconut Rum, please, for best tasting results. Or maybe that’s just a personal preference, but I do love it!
Creating these ice pops will take just minutes, from start to finish. Gathering the ingredients takes longer than the actual time spent creating them. The real kicker is waiting at least 5-ish hours for the ice pops to freeze and then to finally enjoy.
If having a party, I’d suggest making them early in the morning, or even the night before just so you’re ready to welcome your happy guests with the best boozy treat of evvvv.errrr.
