Tips on Making Strawberry Peach Vodka Popsicles
These ice pops are the perfect dessert if you have pool parties or just having a trip to the beach. Here are some tips to make these fruity alcohol popsicles extra enjoyable:
- Feel free to make these strawberry vodka popsicles non-alcoholic. Children can be very persistent and might want to insist on trying out these popsicles. If that’s the case, simply omit the vodka and tonic water to make this into regular popsicles. You can even modify it to better fit their taste by adding milk to make them creamier.
- Try switching up your fruit combo. Aside from strawberry and peach, you can also try other fruits and juices as flavor combinations like watermelon lemonade vodka, kiwi-berry vodka, pineapple-mango, and other fruits. Feel free to experiment!
- Make them ahead of time and freeze until you can serve them. It is always best to freeze your popsicles for a longer time. Keeping them in the fridge overnight is better because this will ensure that they will set perfectly.
- Do not fill the popsicle mold to the brim. Leaving enough empty space on top of the mold will allow the popsicle to expand properly. If you fill the molds fully, the content might overflow and affect the shape of your popsicles.

Frequently Asked Questions
Will vodka freeze in a popsicle?
Freezing vodka ice pops can be very tricky at times because alcohol has a different freezing point compared to other liquids such as water and fruit juice. So following the right measurement is really the key to avoiding turning your popsicles into slush. The recommended ratio is 1½ ounces of alcohol for every cup of fruit juice or puree.
Can you get drunk off of a vodka popsicle?
Boozy popsicles differ on their alcohol level depending on the kind of alcoholic drink and the amount mixed into it. Ready-made vodka popsicles usually contain around 8 percent ABV (alcohol by volume). With this volume, yes, it’s possible for someone to get tipsy after consuming at least two of these adult popsicles. But it also depends on someone’s alcohol tolerance. Remember that even if these are popsicles, they still must be consumed in moderation.
