How to make a cocktail popsicle

Cocktail popsicles are easy to make. You see alot of them here on Bakers Royale, I sorta love them in all ways possible: conceiving the flavor combos, deciding what booze to use or what drink to mix and of course eating them. I even love shooting them, even if they become a melt-y mess like the picture you see—although, somehow that melting mess is one of my favorite shots.

I started this cocktail popsicle series last year and I brought it back this year since you guys seem to love them too. With that I get a lot questions asking what forms I use, where do I get them along with questions about a few other details.

That said, I decided it was time to do a post with a step-by-step tutorial on how to make a cocktail popsicle. For the full details and recipe to these Strawberry Orange Margarita Popsicles hit the jump to

A few notes before you go:

  • I purchase all my forms from Amazon – just type in popsicle forms and you will find them, but you can use just about any form to create a popsicle (see the peeled Dixie cup and the mini baking tin I used in the bottom left corner of the first picture).
  • To keep my popsicles from melting too fast during serving or photographing I place the serving plate or pan in the freezer overnight. For more proof on how quickly the popsicles can melt during a hot day just take a look at lead shot of this post. The marble board that I shot the picture on was not chilled and I was shooting way too slow that day.
  • Any of the popsicles you see here on the blog can easily made into a mocktail popsicle by omitting the alcohol.

    Delish looking & I am always impressed you can get all your food styled, staged, and camera ready and get the shots you need before it even looks like it’s going to melt one iota. You are speedwoman photographer :)

    I opened your site and was just thinking how you always make great cakes and great fruit pospsicles and drinks! Then I read the full post. I like how you go from chocolate buttercream one day to ethereal ices the next!

    These look so good I don’t think I’d care whether they were melted or not…I feel a new obsession coming on!

    I’ve been eyeing your boozy pops for a while now. I just found a Popsicle mold in my mom’s basement. Totally making these now.
