Poptails equal summer fun




Chef Anne Feinman

Poptails are grownup’s version of popsicles. A refreshing frozen alcoholic beverage on a stick. Sound intriguing? Read on…

You’re poolside, the sun is really hot and you’re thinking about those cold specialty drinks you enjoyed on vacation. The pina colada, mudslide, or perhaps watermelon margarita. Most of your favorite drinks can be turned into a “Poptail.” Make plenty ahead and keep frozen to share when guests join you at the pool or beach.

Pull out the kid’s popsicle tray or use any small 3 oz-4 oz cup or shot glass. Locate some stir sticks or popsicle sticks.
