Move aside Jell-O shots; boozicles are the latest summertime trend to cool down on a hot day. While ice pops are typically a favorite childhood treat, they can taste even better when you’re an adult. Here are 10 of the best spiked Popsicles around.
Obviously, when you’re making boozicles, you should keep them out of the reach of children. The sweetness of the following concoctions can really mask the alcohol content.
