When the weather is this sticky, there’s no excuse not to stay cool while enjoying yourself. For your summer partying pleasure, we’ve dreamed up some boozy popsicles which are perfectly frosty and oh-so-fun. Each alcohol variety includes a classic cocktail reimagined as an ice pop, and then our very own Plated pop. For every cup of non-booze, use 1.5 ounces (1 shot glass) of booze. Mix it all up, pour it in molds, add some sticks, and freeze for a fabulously cold alternative to cocktails.
