Bourbon Peaches and Cream Popsicles


Faster than you can say “cupcake fatigue,” gourmet popsicles have become the latest fully saturated food trend.

Now you don’t even have to leave your house to have them. Here’s a DIY home brew popsicle recipe with an adult twist.

Don’t be fooled by the Lolita-esque styling of these pops. The crushed peaches in these popsicles were soaked in a bourbon bath to cool you down and chill you out. Mix it with a little simple syrup and some plain yogurt and you’ll have cocktail popsicles in just a few freezing hours.

Ingredients

Makes 18-22 popsicles

  • 1 cup ripe peaches, crushed
  • ¼ cup bourbon
  • ½ cup simple syrup
  • 2 cups plain yogurt

Instructions

  1. Peel and slice peaches. Use a potato masher to crush the peaches. Combine crushed peaches and bourbon in a bowl, mix to combine. Add the simple syrup in slowly and taste to preference. Add yogurt to bourbon peach mixture and combine.
  2. Score top edge of Dixie cup with scissors for easy peeling. Pour mixture into Dixie cups. Freeze for two hours or until mixture starts to solidify enough to hold a popsicle stick upright. Continue to freeze until mixture is completely frozen into a popsicle, about 5-6 hours. Peel off Dixie cups. Serve.
