Kids love popsicles on hot days, but why should kids get to have all the popsicle fun? Adults deserve a treat that lets them cool off, too. Plus, popsicles work as snack or dessert, party favor, and decoration, all in one. You can freeze them in shapes and colors that fit a party theme, add fresh strawberries or other fruit, even personalize the popsicle sticks. And in this yummy popsicle recipe, you can also turn the pink lemonade popsicle into a unique summer cocktail.
With the addition of moonshine, these pink popsicles are definitely frozen treats for adults. Serve them at a summertime brunch or a backyard barbecue happy hour, just make sure you mark them as being not for the younger set.
This pink popsicle is also the easiest summer treat you can make. There's almost no prep time (though you do have to wait for the popsicle to freeze, of course) and you only have to combine two ingredients. Simply mix pink lemonade and moonshine in equal parts and pour into the popsicle molds of your choice. You can use already mixed pink lemonade or make it yourself, meaning you can go sugar free or use your choice of sweetener.
If you don't have ready-made popsicle molds, all you need are small paper cups and wooden popsicle sticks. One trick is to line the cups on a baking sheet, pour the liquid into the cups, then cover them with a sheet of plastic wrap pulled tight. Poke the sticks through the plastic wrap to help keep them upright while they freeze.

In a pitcher combine the pink lemonade and moonshine. Pour into popsicle molds and freeze until solid or overnight. Serve.
To remove from molds easily, run a bit of warm water over the molds to loosen the popsicles.
