Dirty Pirate Poptails

Yesterday afternoon I had a fun photo shoot with a bunch of Dirty Pirates – argggg! Dirty Pirate Poptails that is!

Poptail is a term coined by the people behind a website called Endless Simmer. “Like popsicles? Love cocktails? What’s not to like about a pop-tail?” I’ve seen the recipe for these from Endless Simmer floating around for several weeks now, and yesterday alone, I saw the link shared on 4 or 5 Facebook pages. So, several days ago, we thought we’d mix up and freeze a batch and see if freezing rum actually worked and if they were really as good and refreshing as they look on Endless Simmer’s website. Let me tell ya – they are tasty little things and just great for a hot summer day – perhaps by the beach or pool. Do they freeze as had as water? No – so be sure to have a plate or napkin ready as you enjoy them.

Dirty Pirate Popsicles
(from Endless Simmer)

2 1/2 c.Coke
1/3 c. Captain Morgan Spiced Rum
1/3 c. Kahlua
Place all ingredients in a large glass and stir to combine. Pour mixture into popsicle molds.

Freeze for about 2 hours or until mixture starts to solidify enough to hold a popsicle stick upright. Insert popsicle sticks and finish freezing popsicles overnight. To release popsicles run hot water on the outside of popsicle molds for a 2-3 seconds.

If you buy a set of popsicle mold that have the stick attached to the lid (such as these – Tovolo Star Ice Pop Molds, Set of 6, Green) just pour the liquid in the mold and freeze overnight)

  1. Enjoy your website and facebook postings. Just wanted to let you know that the link you provide for endless simmer seems to be a malicious site. Got a virus warning when I went to it.

  2. I used to keep a big Tupperware container with tequila lemonade and seven up which froze up beautifully for frozen margaritas anytime with out a mess. So I am surprised these pop tails freeze solid enough for Popsicles. But sound good, I will be trying them.

    • J – we were surprised too – and put together a batch just to see if it would work. It doesn’t freeze hard like ice, but holds together enough to eat as a popsicle! Enjoy!
