Summertime from the adult’s perspective can be a bit bleak. As the sun shines through the window, the weather beckons us to come outside and play. Unfortunately we are stuck inside an air-conditioned office, sitting at our desks being “responsible,” longing for the days when we were carefree kids with two months of sleeping in, summer camps, and playing with our friends. Adulthood can be cruel, can it not? It’s probably why I had to create a recipe us adults could stand behind and be proud of: Bloody Mary Popsicles!

Though this is no reason to be to depressed. As we have grown to understand, we always have the capability of controlling our own happiness. And right now, happiness is coming in the form of a popsicle filled with alcohol. How age and weather appropriate indeed! The thought then hit me the other day, “What would happen if I put my favorite adult beverage into popsicle form??” You know what I found? Heaven, that’s what. Make these Bloody Mary popsicles tonight!

So while the days of summer are filled with popsicle-stained faces running around the park, make your own adult version of this summertime classic. A Bloody Mary popsicle is just what every adult needs to feel like they are being transported back to the days of carefree living.
I took these to brunch at a friend’s house this weekend and they were awesome! Delicious and so freakin’ cute.

Oh this absolutely settles it! I have to get some Popsicle forms for the freezer! This is fun and brilliant and a bit wicked all in one go… 🙂
what delicious popsicles! i definitely love cocktail popsicles:) they’re just more fun!
Love this idea! I can’t wait to invite friends over for brunch and make these.
i love your brain! keep making this into that..:) i cant wait to make hubbs fave cocktail popsicle..:) i think its a cool idea to also limit the amount of alcohol consumption;)
Just enough to whet the whistle 🙂 Oh, and my brain loves you Richa. xo
totally dreaming up some extra minty mojitos!
Oh Cara, how do I love thee? Let me count the ways! These popsicles are too fun!
Not as much I love you, I’m most positive… xo
Now that’s a f*cking amazing idea, sorry to swear, it’s so uncouth… I LOVE these, Cara.
Next time, please do not bleep out all of the letters! If you are going to curse, do it correctly 🙂 ha
But, but, that would be even more rude!
these look super fun! i’m more of a caesar gal than a bloody mary gal, but i think those are pretty canadian. in any event, they’re not vegan so i haven’t had a ‘true’ caesar in years and it’s been months since having even a veganized boozy one at that! hahaha. i’m with you & shira on the tonic slushies though! talk about thirst quenching 😉
I’ve never heard of a Caesar–looking it up now 😉 Bummer that you cannot partake in one of these pops…at least for several more months! CONGRATS girl!! How exciting–so happy for you 🙂
What a great idea! I love Bloody Mary’s as well 😀 And I would have to agree…I feel healthy drinking them…weird lol
haha. We are 2 weirdos 🙂

So great! I am a huuuge fan of bloody mary’s! This post made me thing of all the other booze varieties that would be good in popsicle form. I’m thinking sangria 🙂 I wish I had popsicle molds so I could attempt this!
I was thinking about a sangria as well. Maybe now I will have to attempt it… xo 🙂
Gabby @ the veggie nook
Oh I am pumped for the results of this experiment 🙂
How cool! What a neat flavour combination! 🙂 Yum!
I never thought eating alcohol could be so much fun 😉

They look perfect for summer and your photography is absolutely gorgeous!-Julie
Julie, what an incredibly sweet thing to say–thank you so much for this comment! xo
I love bloody marys, and these sound perfect for beating the heat! Brunch popsicles, perhaps? 🙂
Eeeeeee! I am loving the idea of brunch popsicles, Eileen!
Michelle Collins (@MichellePC)
I just Pinned these. They look fantastic!
So glad you like them, Michelle! xo
I just got push-up popsicle molds and am now envisioning a push-up cocktail. THAT does sound heavenly. Thanks for sharing! And I’m with you bloody mary’s are the bomb.
Ohmygosh, a push-up cocktail! LOVE LOVE LOVE. Searching to buy one now…
Hahaha! I love this! Could you make me a gin and tonic Popsicle? Truly, this is brilliant and a great idea for our hot summer. Happy weekend to ya!
Hook me up on the gin and tonic version! My favorite summer cocktail…love it!
I think my brain is working on overdrive now. I have THE perfect idea. We will see if it works… xo
Haha! My fave summer cocktail too Shira! In the winter I opt for a whiskey sour. 🙂
Can’t say I don’t appreciate your taste Karista! Love me a good Whiskey Sour too!
LOL! Thanks Shira!
Everyone’s favorite type of booze is coming out–I love it! ha. Working on a freezy gin and tonic just for you 🙂
I wonder how much alcohol to other stuff ratio you need to have to make it freeze?

These are awesome! But why use a stick when you could just use celery?
Because it wasn’t as sturdy as I had hoped :/
Brooke (Crackers on the Couch)
Ah… How does the salt effect the freezing?
Bloody Marys? Too Too Tomato. I’m with Abby. Throw some Vodka (potato, of course) into a blender with some coconut cream, pineapple and lime and whatever doesn’t go directly down my gullet can go into my putative popsicle molds. They’re on my list of ‘Cara’s Toys I Do Not Own.’ No. They’re on the list of ‘Toys Cara PRETENDS to Own Just to Make Everyone Else Look Like a Freak.’ xoxoxoxoxoxoox
Or is it “Toys Cara Owns Because SHE Is a Freak”???? haha
I feel like Veruca Salt. I want it now!
But daddy, I want an Oompa Loompa! haha. Sorry, that just brought me back to 5th grade when I was Veruca Salt in the school play 🙂 xo
I’m not into Bloody Maries (Marys?) but if you can devise a vodka popsicle, I’m there!
Vodka popsicle recipe: Pour vodka into popsicle mold. Freeze. Lick. Giggle. A lot. xo
You. Are. A. Genius! Pretty sure I now need some popsickle molds. NEED!
Lush? Yes. Genius? Debatable. ha. xo
You should come over with those popsicles and we’ll feast on that and my recent boozy ice cream post. If we do it together, being a lush isn’t as big of a deal. Right?
I’m sorry, I couldn’t finish reading your comment because I already left for your house 🙂
