Boozy Otter-like Pops are the "drink" to slurp on this Summer. While it's hard to come by store-bought versions, you can make them at home using this recipe from The Poptail Manual by Kathy Kordalis ($10) so long as you have your own set of Sunnylife Ice Pop Molds ($19). With only a few ingredients and a few hours time, you can pop these in the freezer and dive in to frozen splendor.
I halved this recipe and still had a little liquid left over (to sip on), but after trying these pops out, I'm convinced I need to buy another package of those silicone molds so my freezer stays stocked. I also diced the strawberries instead of slicing them, so they would fit snugly into the mold. These pops taste like sweet flowers with only a hint of alcohol in the finish. They do melt pretty quickly — but I didn't mind finishing off the pop in slushy form. Seconds, please!
Gentle, elegant, floral and sparkly.
