The Remedy for Summer

That is what I call a Whiskey Bar!

That is what I call a Whiskey Bar!

Oh yes, that’s my idea of a whiskey bar all righty! And what’s more, it’s not just a figment of Tumblr’s imagination: you can really order these things. My own personal preference would be for rum, probably Mount Gay Eclipse Silver, which I had occasion to try recently and was impressed by, or Havana Club Anejo Blanco, which has tequla-like vegetal notes, and neither of which are very sweet.

In any case, it’s certainly worth trotting down to the dollar store (remember when they were five and dimes? No? Just me then? Everyone else this old is dead? Oh FINE!) and getting some molds and giving it a whack. Here’s a thumbnail recipe I’ve discovered online and haven’t tried yet, so if you do, let us know how it turns out.

each booze pop contains a full shot of liquor and a 3 to 1 ratio of mixer/juice.

Hmmm. Blackberry/tequila with mint? Mango/rum? Gin/blueberry? I may be busy quite awhile. When I moved to this godforsaken tundra, unrelenting heat was the last thing I was prepared for. Reporting back later this week; video of our latest Booze Swag Unboxing coming soon.

    I checked out the thumbnail recipe link, and found just the article from the restaurant talking about the booze pops, but no recipe. Alas…However, I assume one could just whip something together with a basic frozen drink recipe. I’ll let you know if I try it!

    The “recipe” such as it exists, is in the comments and replies, where it says the ratio. Apparently there are NO other ingredients: just fruit puree and booze. God knows what they use for the Scotch pops!

    But you’d best have a good freezer!
