I've done frozen cocktails - what I call Boozesicles - a few times before, like my Pomegranate Boozesicles and my Grape Boozesicles. I've even done a few varieties of Martini Granitas, aka fancy, boozy shave ice! They're impressive, fun and a great summer refreshment or dessert that also counts towards happy hour!
When I was invited to a Fourth of July party and asked to bring dessert I decided that I needed to up the ante on frozen cocktails and bring some serious red, white and booze to play.
What I came up with was a refreshingly cool venture through three different alcoholic drinks on a stick. A RaspCherry Martini, a Coconut Colada and a Blueberry Margarita. It's like a cocktail flight (a reduced-measure tasting selection) but frozen on a stick, a tasty and neat way to end a holiday cookout! Especially if you can find the sippy straw popsicle molds I did, no dripping down the hand!
If you can't find the sippy straw molds then flip your boozesicles stick end up and let them melt into a pretty glass, combined together they taste like Tutti Fruity:
Got kids coming? No problem, just leave out the booze, reverse the colors and use a different shaped mold so there's no confusion!
These ought to set off a few fireworks of their own:
