You have the magical new recipe of summertime — the poptail!

These seven yummy popsicle-inspired cocktail recipes will help you cool off with a little something extra this season.


It’s all about the “pop”

We are no stranger to the lure of the poptail. Trust us — we’ve taste tested quite a few. We put a little southern twist on this cool cocktail to create the Bourbon Peach Poptail. Put a little south in your mouth and give it a try.

Inspired by This also kept it southern with her Spicy Watermelon Margarita poptail. Mixing summer’s favorite fruit with a little south-of-the-border inspiration will have you saying, “Ole!“.

Try the Strawberry Lime Spritzer from Mama Loves Food, the perfect refreshing treat on those hot summer nights. Combining fresh summer fruit with a light hint of popsicle makes this cocktail a must try.

Random Acts of Pastel created this Minted Poptail Mojito. Our mouths water just thinking about it. With just enough sweet to add to the minty freshness, this cocktail will be a hit at your next gathering.

The good people behind Pottery Barn know a thing or two about entertaining, and a delicious poptail is no exception. Jazz up your next summertime soiree with their delectable Blueberry Lemon Vodka Fizz Poptail.

A little tart. A little sweet. 1 Big Bite has us seeing red in an oh-so-yummy way with a Raspberry Mint Poptail. You can make this boozy treat into a delicious kid-friendly version. All your guests, big and small, will say “Cheers!“.

Skinny Watermelon Agave Margarita…need we say more? The Skinny Fork crafted this low calorie version of the poptail, so you can go back for seconds guilt-free. Or thirds. Possibly fourths.
