🎵 It’s the most wonderful tiiiiiiime of the year! 🎵
No I haven’t lost my mind… at least I don’t think I have?
It’s the MOST wonderful time of the yeaaaar, because it is POPSICLE WEEK!!
The second greatest week of summer!!
Just so we are clear, next week is officially the greatest week of summer.
And it’s not because of the dang fourth of July. 😝
It is because next week is mahhh BIRTHDAY!
Let’s eat some popsicles and celebrate the gloriousness that is not only two fabulous weeks in a row, but also the deliciousness that is sticky, sweet frozen treats on a stick.
But, before we get to eating ALL the popsicles and giving ourselves ALL the brain freeze, don’t forget to follow the palatability of popsicle week on social media with the hashtag #PopsicleWeek.
Or, you can check out the evil genius behind popsicle week, Billy over at Wit And Vinegar’s blog for a complete list of a bazillion popsicles (including all the pops from popsicle week 2013, 2014, 2015 AND 2016).
It’s popsicle insanity over there.
Strawberry Kiwi Mojito Boozy Popsicles
Sorry for yelling, but COCKTAILS IN POPSICLE FORM?!?
⬆️ They just requires caps on lock. 😉
Tart, sweet, refreshingly cool and perfectly boozy popsicles with a hint of fresh mint and big ‘ole pieces of sliced, fabulously fresh kiwis and strawberries.
These poptails are straight up SUBLIME, friends.
I mean, booze + fruit in frozen popsicle form*?
It’s a no brainer life win for your face, yall.
*If you don’t share my enthusiasm for boozy popsicles, you can easily make these poptails into mock-poptails! Check out the note #5 below!!
Notes, tips and tricks for Strawberry Kiwi Mojito Boozy Popsicles recipe:
- The recipe for Strawberry Kiwi Mojito Boozy Popsicles below yields approximately 10 popsicles, but it will depend on the size of your mold and how much sliced, fresh fruit you add.
- Using a small pitcher or measuring glass with a spout will make it much easier to pour the mojito mix into the popsicle molds!
- I recommend filling each mold about ½ to ¾ full, then add your sliced fruit and fresh mint, and then fill the mold with the remaining mojito mix.
- If you find you don’t have enough mojito mix to completely fill all the molds, either add more fruit or add a bit of club soda to the molds to top them off.
- If you aren’t a fan of alcohol, or you want to serve these to kids, simply omit the rum and substitute club soda instead!
- I like to let my popsicles sit in the freezer for one hour or so before I add the sticks. I find partially freezing the popsicles before adding the sticks helps the sticks stand up straight versus tilted and lopsided.
- If you have a hard time removing the popsicles from the mold, run the sides of the mold under room temperature water for 30 seconds or so.
Join me in celebrating the popsicle week with these Strawberry Kiwi Mojito Boozy Popsicles! Because summer demands pretty poptails on repeat!
Until Thursday friends, cheers – to booze and popsicles, one of the greatest combinations EVA.

How to make Strawberry Kiwi Mojito Boozy Popsicles at home 👇
Strawberry Kiwi Mojito Boozy Popsicles
- ½ Cup Sugar
- 1 Cup Water
- 20 Fresh Mint Leaves , plus more for garnish
- ½ Cup Lime Juice
- 5 TBS Light Rum
- 5-6 Strawberries – hulled and thinly sliced
- 3 Kiwis – peeled and thinly sliced
- Club Soda (If needed)
- In a small saucepan, combine the sugar and water. Bring to a boil over medium heat and cook until sugar is completely dissolved (this should happen pretty quickly). Stir in the mint leaves, remove from heat and let steep until the mint syrup is completely cooled to room temperature.
- Strain the mint and transfer the simple syrup to a large pitcher or measuring glass*. Add in the lime juice and rum. Whisk until combined.
- Pour the mixture into popsicle molds, filling each mold about 3/4th full. Add a mint leaf and slices of strawberries and kiwis to each mold. If the fruit doesn’t fill the mold all the way to the top, either add more fruit, or add a bit of club soda.
- Place the molds in the freezer and freeze for 1 hour. Remove the molds and insert wooden sticks. Place the molds back in the freezer and freeze for at least 4 hours, preferably overnight.
- Remove popsicles from molds and enjoy. If you have a hard time removing the popsicles, run the sides of the mold under warm water for 10 seconds or so. Enjoy!

these sound so refreshing!! also, the last time i photographed sliced strawberries, they ended up looking like dates for whatever reason, so the fact that i can recognize that you used strawberries is impressive lol
Aimee @ ShugarySweets says
Such gorgeous photos. I’d give anything right now for one of these popsicles 🙂
Popsicle week is so genius. Wow, i clicked over to wit and vinegar – cool popsicle ideas for sure. Love how beautiful these fruit boozy popsicles look and i love the idea of serving them how you have them plated. Fun! you are gonna make me look good!

I love the idea of poptails! Where has this been all my life? Like seriously. Mojito flavors are perfect for this and that fresh frozen fruit is so refreshing in the summer time. And happy almost birthday!
Rachelle @ Beer Girl Cooks says
I will take all the fruit and booze in popsicle form! Yes, please! I love your strawberry kiwi mojito business! I wish I had about a dozen of these in my freezer right now, but I guess I know how to remedy that! Cheers to Popsicle Week! Happy Birthday!
Anu - My Ginger Garlic Kitchen says
I can add a little booze to all my summer foods. And this booze in popsicles is the best idea ever. Toady, it finally feels like a hot summer day here, and all I want is these pretty popsicles for all my meals, and I would be the happiest person. 🙂
OK I need to know your trick? I’ve tried to make these fun popsicles there the trust freezes perfectly, my fruit always rushes to the top or bottom of the popsicle. Booze + Fruit + Frozen = Hell Yes! It’s been super duper hot in my hood for the past few weeks and the only thing that cools me off is frozen treats.
