Welcome back the sunshine with these 3-ingredient gourmet popsicles for happy hour! These Strawberry Lemonade Daiquiri Popsicles use fresh, farmers market ingredients and rum for an adults-only treat perfect for warm-weather entertaining.
A boozy treat with farmers market ingredients!
Fresh strawberries are now readily available at the grocery store or perhaps even your backyard if you grow them. If you go to a picking patch – clean, slice, and freeze berries to enjoy all summer in blended drinks and cocktails. Pick out bright red berries with a fragrant aroma. Freshly picked strawberries always smell extra sweet. The citrus crop was also abundant this year and lemons are a pantry staple. The strawberry and lemon combination in these Strawberry Lemonade Daiquiri Popsicles is a classic favorite flavor duo.
The lemonade gives this daiquiri popsicle plenty of sweetness. You are welcome to make homemade lemonade or use your favorite brand. I enjoy Simply Lemonade because it isn’t overly sweet.
Why a daiquiri popsicle is better than a daiquiri…
Daiquiris are known for having a delightful blended consistency. Some recipes use ice, some don’t. Ice can just water down the flavor so I like to avoid it when possible. Simply toss fresh strawberries, lemonade, and white rum into a blender and purée. You’ll end up with a perfectly-smooth drink that’s missing one thing – a chill. Pour the mixture into popsicle molds and freeze overnight. The next day you can enjoy a frozen Strawberry Lemonade Daiquiri Popsicle at home.
- 4 cups fresh strawberries, sliced
- 2 cups lemonade (homemade or your favorite brand)
- 1 cup white rum
- Combine strawberries, lemonade, and rum in a blender. Purée on high.
- Pour into popsicle molds, add popsicle sticks, and freeze overnight.
- Enjoy on a warm spring day!
Home Chef Tip: Make a kid-friendly version by swapping out the rum for a lemon lime soda.
Gently run the popsicle molds under water to get them to pop out easily.
You can find popsicle molds and sticks at your local grocery store, craft store, or on Amazon! If you are looking for another mouth-watering strawberry popsicle recipe, these Margarita Popsicles with Salt are also delicious!
