Popsicles take a boozy turn with these ginger, lime and vodka ice pops inspired by a classic Moscow Mule cocktail. These simple ice pops have only 47 calories per pop and take just 5 minutes to prep–just remember to stick them in the freezer at least 4 hours before you’re ready to serve them.
While we’re all about low-alcohol cocktails this year, if you want to sneak in a little more booze, try dropping these bad boys into a glass of Prosecco for a playful summer drink. Just don’t add any more vodka to the ice pop mix or the pops won’t be able to freeze solid.
