I love my day drinking, but sometimes I feel slightly inapropriate when I am searching for a cold one mid-afternoon. If you are like me and looking for some afternoon sauce but don't want to be too obvious, I have the answer with these recipes for alcohol infused ice pops! Can you think of a better way to cool down than with an ice pop? Some things suck about growing up, but drinking legally is not one of them. Grab your mothers Tupperware molds, scoop up a few bottles of booze and allow me to introduce you some of the best adult ice pop recipes around.
I mean, c'mon, these are unreal. Maybe I am a little biased, considering I'd chew on margarita gum if I could, but summer and margaritas go hand in hand. No longer do you need to choose between how you want your margarita prepared, you are going to be licking it all day long.

Be honest, your mouth is watering after the regular margarita "pop" recipe, now let's kick it up a notch. These fruity pops are just as frosty, with the bonus of everybody's favorite summer time snack... watermelon! If you really want to get the party started, may I suggest soaking your watermelon before infusing it into the treat? Yeah, I just went there.
Tequila sunrises are fruity and light, and the ice pop form of this staple summer beverage is just that. A little on the sweeter side, they are a similar experience to sinking your teeth into moms orange juice pops, only this time you catch a buzz.
These bad boys are a little on the heavier side, think of these as the after dinner drinks of alcoholic ice pops. Even if you are not a huge fan of cherries for dessert, one lick will change your mind. Another plus about these pops is if you are trying to be sneaky with your alcohol consumption nobody will be the wiser.
I am seriously considering just pouring this recipe into ice sheets and popping these suckers in my water bottles. Between the mint leaves and lime, these ice pops are the perfect adult take on the classic fruit pop.
