Adventures in poptails: peach and sweet tea with bourbon


I've done it friends!  I have finally found a delicious and amazing poptail that freezes!  And if you've been following, you know how excited I am about this.  Let the happy dance commence!

Enjoying the leaning tower of poptail?

Sweet tea and bourbon are two of my fave fave things for summer!  This juicy boozy tea was SO delicious before freezing, that I knew it was going to be fantastic.  I actually ended up making these fab cocktails my whole vacation long.  Seriously, pretty sure I drank my weight in bourbon.

Here's the recipe:

Makes 10 popsicles
12 oz peach nectar (I used Kern's)
24 oz sweet tea
1/2 cup bourbon

Stir together and pour into popsicle molds.  Place molds in freezer for one hour.  When the liquid is frozen enough to hold a stick, insert popsicle sticks.  Freeze overnight.  Enjoy!

OK, so I now have one option for my wedding poptails next August.  YAY!  I'm a bit hooked on making these now (if you couldn't tell already. ha!), and I'm thinking whiskey cherry coke for next endeavor. 

Until then folks...........
