Hi-ya, friends!

Happy almost weekend!

Today I am going to keep things relatively short… but, for good reason.

If you loyally follow (and actually read) this blog, you know Boy and I recently moved into our brand spankin’ new, forever (until retirement) home.

Well, today the fence is FINALLY being installed!  Wahoo!

Even though we just moved in 3 weeks ago, we have been waiting on the fence installation for twelve weeks.

TWELVE.

As in roughly 2 ¾ months.

I couldn’t be more excited the fence is finally here, but I’m also very easily distracted.  And right now men are banging away in my backyard while my fur-child is running around howling like a lunatic.  Obviously the current environment isn’t the most conducive for my productivity.

Ya heard?

So instead of all the chit chat, let’s simply quench our #ThirstyThursday thirst with popsicles.

BOOZY popsicles.

YAAASSSSSS!

Strawberry Mango Gin and Tonic Popsicles

Aka G&T POPTAILS

Basically these popsicles are your classic gin and tonic cocktails gone gloriously rogue.

Fruity, sweet and sour with smooth nuances of tropical mango, a hint of boozy gin and tonic vibes and magnificent, big ‘ole slices of sweet strawberries.

Refreshing, vibrant, and doubling as cocktails AND dessert, these popsicles are how you WIN at LIFE.

… Or at least win at #ThirstyThursday.   😉

Recipe Notes:

  1. The recipe below calls for 2 cups of peeled and cubed mango, which is roughly 2 average sized mangoes.  While I highly encourage you to use fresh, ripe mangoes you can absolutely substitute frozen mango cubes if desired.
  2. You can use any kind of tonic water you would like.  I used diet tonic water in my popsicles and they turned out delish.  If you are more of a Gin Rickey person, you can absolutely substitute club soda for the tonic.
  3. Lime Juice Cordial is simply sweetened lime juice.  You should be able to find it in your local grocery store near the mixers, juice or grenadine.  I’ve used this one before.  But, if you can’t find it, don’t want to buy it, or simply want to make it yourself (<– High five for you!), I have included how to DIY in the notes section of the recipe below.
  4. I recommend dividing half the strawberry slices between the popsicle molds, pouring the mango cocktail mix into the molds, and then dropping in the remaining strawberry slices.  Layering the strawberries in steps will help keep them suspended and prevent them from all sinking to the bottom.
  5. The recipe below yields approximately 8-10 popsicles.  It will largely depend on the size of your popsicle mold and how many strawberry slices you add to each.  I added about 4 slices of strawberry to each mold and ended up with 9 popsicles.
  6. 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.

Tropical, boozy and guaranteed to help you chillax, these poptails belong in your life!  Get it while the summer gettin’ is still good, friends.

Until next week, cheers – to cocktails on a stick.

Recipe Notes

1. The calls for 2 cups of peeled and cubed mango, which is roughly 2 average sized mangoes. While I highly encourage you to use fresh, ripe mangoes you can absolutely substitute frozen mango cubes if desired.

 

2. You can use any kind of tonic water you would like. I used diet tonic water in my popsicles and they turned out delicious. If you are more of a Gin Rickey person, you can absolutely substitute club soda for the tonic.

 

3. Lime Juice Cordial is simply sweetened lime juice. You should be able to find it in your local grocery store near the mixers, juice or grenadine.  If you can’t find it, or don’t want to buy it, you can make it yourself:

Homemade Sweetened Lime Juice (Yield: enough for roughly 4 cocktails)

1/2 Cup Water

1/2 Cup Sugar

2/3 Cup Lime Juice

  1. In a small saucepan, combine the water and sugar. Bring to a gentle boil, whisking constantly.  Boil just long enough for the sugar to dissolve.
  2. Remove from the heat and let sit until it reaches room temperature.  Stir in the lime juice transfer to a covered container and store in the refrigerator until ready to use.

 

4. I recommend dividing half the strawberry slices between the popsicle molds, pouring the mango cocktail mix into the molds, and then dropping in the remaining strawberry slices. Layering the strawberries in steps will help keep them suspended and prevent them from all sinking to the bottom.

 

5. The recipe below yields approximately 8-10 popsicles. It will largely depend on the size of your popsicle mold and how many strawberry slices you add to each. I added about 4 slices of strawberry to each mold and ended up with 9 popsicles.
