It’s at least guaranteed to result in oodles of fun evening! If you’re not into food and/or drinks, you might wanna look away from this post. 🙂

When I’m not travelling, I can usually be found in 1 of 3 states – napping, eating or thinking about eating. I was in state 3 when I my mind wandered off to a halloween party we organised a while back and in which Yaya made what can only be described as some lethal vodka jelly shots and I started toying with the idea of ‘solid cocktails’ and yes, I hear myself – it sounds silly but it’s not quite as far fetched as you’d think. And as it turns out, it’s a lot easier to do than I initially thought.

What are solid cocktails? Simple – iced cocktails popsicles. They’re the ideal summer party item. Cool, refreshing and guaranteed to get you and your friends nice and merry!

What d’ya you need?

1.) Popsicle-maker thingamajigs (like this one here or here – see more below). Not sure what they’re officially called. And popsicle sticks – don’t forget the sticks.

2.) One of these cocktail recipes below. Preferably – alamakaholic (which, for some reason, is how one of my friends pronounces ‘alcoholic’ and now I just can’t seem to shake off).

The next step’s pretty easy – mix them up real nice, pop into your popsicle maker and whip ’em out to the delight of your friends at your next summer barbecue party!

5.) The Strawberry Mint! If the strawberry daiquiri and the mojito, made sweet love and had babies – it would be this popsicle. (The non-alcoholic recipe is here but add rum/gin/tequila/whatever to crank it up a notch – the choice is yours)
