Boozy popsicles have become somewhat of a summer staple this season. They may not pack a lot of punch, but they’re a tasty and refreshing way to enjoy your favorite spirits when the summer heat is at its peak.
It’s somewhat rare to come across a spiked popsicle recipe that calls for the addition of bourbon, so I was pretty excited when I came across two recipes for popsicles that are made using Basil Hayden’s Bourbon. They were created by Los Angeles-based mixologist Rob Floyd and both sound and look pretty amazing. Check out the recipes below, cheers!
Basil Hayden’s Berry American
7 parts Basil Hayden’s Bourbon
1 1/2 parts Elderflower Syrup
2 parts Water
2 parts Fresh Lime Juice
4-5 Strawberries, medium size
Poke a hole in each blueberry and soak in 4 parts of bourbon for 30 minutes. Set aside. Add strawberries to cocktail shaker and muddle. Add fresh lime juice, Elderflower syrup, remaining bourbon and water to the cocktail shaker and shake hard. Add to the popsicle molds. Add three bourbon-soaked blueberries to each mold and freeze.
