Strawberry Peach Vodka Collins Poptails

Strawberry Peach Poptails

I made these last weekend for a hamburger BBQ we threw with our friends. I was a little skeptical on how they would taste, but I am glad to report they were great!  It was the perfect ending to our meal.

You can taste the natural fruit flavors, the added tonic water cuts down on the sweetness, but they are still sweet enough, and they are boozy, but not frat party boozy.

I doubled the strawberry recipe part because I needed more than 12, but kept the peach syrup quantities as the recipe details, so I wouldn’t have any leftovers.  I made about 20 popsicles with it.  Now that I have discovered “poptails”, I can’t wait to try out different types using rum, bourbon and different types of fruit.

I’m sorry I didn’t take a picture of my popsicles! I didn’t think I would make a post out of them, but they were so good I have to share them with you.  I am borrowing this photograph from the provider of the recipe at Endless Simmer so you can see what they look like.
