FROZEN TREATS ARE NOT JUST FOR KIDS! OH A GIVEAWAY TOO!
The heat has lifted a little today. We have a nice breeze and we are suppose to get some rain. I hope so because my Heirloom Veggie Garden is finally finished! My little babies are planted firmly in their new beds. I will be posting the garden on LUCYS GARDEN today.
It was so hot yesterday that I had a couple of popsicles while I was looking at Pinterest. I do love Pinterest. There is so much more on there than just photographs. Lots of recipes, which I love. I came across some great ideas for Adult Popsicles or Poptails, like the delicious Blueberry Cheesecake ones above. Here are the ones I want to try.
Look at these BOURBON BUTTERSCOTCH LATTES yummmm!
And these MUDSLIDES. I can taste them now.
These RASPBERRY CAIPIRINHA look so refreshing.
Oh, the ROOT BEER FLOATS are so nostalgic and delicious looking.
I must say that these DIRTY PIRATES are the ones I am going to make first. I will replace the Coke with Pepsi.
Dirty Pirate Popsicle
2 1/2 cups Coke
1/3 cup Captain Morgan Spiced Rum
1/3 cup Kahlua
Place all ingredients in a large glass and stir to combine. Pour mixture into popsicles mold.
Freeze for about 2 hours or until mixture starts to solidify enough to hold a popsicle stick upright. Insert popsicle sticks and finish freezing popsicles overnight. To release popsicles run hot water on the outside of popsicle molds for a 2-3 seconds.
*Slightly flat Coke will produce a popsicle that stays frozen longer. To quickly and manually flatten out the carbonation, empty out enough Coke from a 2-liter bottle to leave a 3-inch space from top of bottle to top of coke. Place cap back on and shake vigorously for 10 seconds. Set aside to leave bubbles to subside.
This delicious frozen treat recipe as well as all of the others and many more are at ENDLESS SIMMER. So why not try something new this summer. They are quick and easy and fun.
