“Poptails” I love it! I have been playing around all summer with different popsicle recipes. Well failing all summer. My first attempt was with margarita popsicles but I made the rookie mistake of too much alcohol so I really just had a slushy tequila mess-which I guess is just a frozen margarita. My second attempt was with a low fat coconut bar which came out okay but not good enough to post. I also had the issue of all of the coconut floating to the top. I then decided on champagne and strawberry popsicles because I went to a bridal shower recently and was feeling inspired.
Speaking of inspiration, while researching I came across a jello recipe that used a mix of champagne and ginger ale. I got rid of the gelatin and went with a ratio that I thought had the right amount of champagne flavor. This is a quick and easy recipe that I hope will be the start of a series of ‘poptails’ in the future.
