This might come as a surprise to some of you, but a Long Island has absolutely zero iced tea in it and a whole shitload of alcohol.
Basically you take just about every liquor in the entire bar, mix it all into one big cup, add a splash of Coke to give it that nice iced tea color, drink 4 of 5 of them and eventually you wake up in a park somewhere without your wallet, phone, keys, pants… who knows? The point is that these bad boys are strong as a motherfucker and you’d never know it by sipping on one.
Which is exactly why we’re going to whip up an entire batch of Long Island Iced Tea popsicles this summer and do our best to try and remember it. Oh, and all of you that comment “alcohol doesn’t freeze” in the comment section every time we post a popsicle recipe, it’s called science. No you can’t put straight alcohol in a popsicle mold and expect it to freeze, but nobody is doing that anyway. You’re looking for about 8% ABV and if you follow the recipe, that’s what you’ll get.
A perfectly frozen, boozy popsicle that hits the spot during those hot summer months.
