Alcoholic ice pops are becoming a popular way for consumers to satisfy a taste for nostalgia as well as a thirst for adult beverages.

In this refreshing summer format, ingredients can be put on display in flavorful new ways that bring a new appreciation to familiar ingredients. Some of the best examples of this include riesling popsicles made with edible flowers or popsicles that blend the colors and flavors of cherries with red merlot. These combinations are the perfect mix of childhood charm and sophistication.

In addition to popsicles that can be made by the mold, brands are also offering ice pops to go in convenient single-serve packages. These options offer an easy way for consumers to enjoy the flavors of mixed drinks and even champagne in a much more relaxed manner.
