Bloody Mary Pops

* 2 c. tomato juice
* 2 oz. (1/4 c.) vodka
* 2 tbsp. Worcestershire sauce
* 1 tbsp. pickle juice
* 2 tsp. hot sauce (such as Tabasco)
* Juice of 1 lime
* 10 celery sticks, cut 5" in length
* 1/4 c. flaky sea salt, for garnish
* 2 tsp. Old Bay seasoning, for garnish


1. In a large liquid measuring cup, whisk together tomato juice, vodka, Worcestershire sauce, pickle juice, hot sauce, and lime juice. Carefully pour mixture into popsicle molds, then insert a celery stick into each pop.

2. Freeze until solid, about 6 hours.

3. Run warm water over molds to loosen popsicles. Sprinkle each popsicle with flaky sea salt and Old Bay, then serve immediately.

Onyx Stainless Steel Popsicle Mold

Made from 18/8 stainless steel, this fast freeze mold is easy to use, easy to clean, and will last you a life time. Designed so that one ice pop can be removed (or re-filled) at a time. Simply hold the mold in your hand for a moment, or run under warm water briefly. (Not too long, it will release very quickly.) Each set comes with one stand, 6 molds, 6 lids, 12 removable silicone rings, and a set of reusable bamboo sticks. The rings ensure proper stick placement. No more tilted stick, or sunken sticks or popped out sticks.

Boozy Piña Colada Popsicles Recipe

recipe via Serious Eats

A balanced popsicle of rich coconut cream, punchy pineapple, and a splash of rum to bring it all together. This recipe is formulated to make six 3-ounce popsicles, but you can scale it up or down as needed to accommodate popsicle molds of different sizes and numbers.

YIELDS: six 3-ounce popsicles  | PREP TIME: 10 minutes | TOTAL TIME: 10 minutes plus 4 hours freezing time 


* 8 ounces cubed pineapple 
* 8 ounces unsweetened coconut cream, shaken or stirred well to incorporate fat
* 2 ounces granulated sugar
* 1/2 ounce white rum 
* 1 1/2 teaspoons fresh lime juice from one lime
* 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt; for table salt, use half as much by volume


1. In a blender, combine pineapple, coconut cream, sugar, rum, lime juice, and salt, and process until very smooth, about 30 seconds.

2. Divide mixture evenly between six 3-fluid-ounce popsicle molds and freeze until solid, at least 4 hours. To unmold, follow your popsicle mold's instructions.

Grapefruit & Tequila Paloma Ice Pops

recipe via Sweet Paul

YIELDS: 8 popsicles  | PREP TIME: 10 minutes | TOTAL TIME: 10 minutes plus 8-12 hours freezing time 


* 2 cups fresh grapefruit juice
* 1/4 cup lime juice
* 1/2 cup simple syrup
* 1 1/2 cups Casa Amigos tequila
* 1 cup club soda
* 1 cup orange juice
* flaky salt
* grated lime zest


1. In a large bowl, mix together grapefruit, lime, simple syrup, tequila, and club soda.

2. Fill the popsicle molds 1⁄3 full with the mixture and put in the freezer to freeze.

3. Once frozen, take out and add the orange juice and freeze again.

4. Lastly, once frozen, add the rest of the grapefruit liquid and freeze one last time for at least 8 hours.

5. Serve with a mixture of salt and lime zest.

TIP: Because alcohol does not freeze, some of these pops will not get completely frozen. They’ll all freeze a bit different; the more alcohol in them, the less hard they’ll be. Turn your freezer up high and you’ll be fine!

Casamigos Blanco Tequila, 750 mL, 80 Proof
Brand: Casamigos Tequila

You could use any tequila for this recipe, but Casamigos is MoodMe's founder, Autumn Calabrese's favorite! Try it out and see why for yourself!  

At Casamigos, our idea was to create the best tasting, smoothest Tequilas and Mezcal, that don’t have to be covered up with salt or lime. We love tequila-on the rocks, by the shot, and at times, straight from the bottle. Tequila-filled nights with friends is how Casamigos was born. Our idea was to make the best-tasting, smoothest tequila whose taste didn't have to be covered up with salt or lime. So we did.

ALCOHOL-FREE FUN VERSION: Coconut Lime Popsicles

recipe via Superman Cooks
