Peach Julep Popsicles

Last Updated on

Step up your adult popsicle game this summer by making Peach Julep Popsicles! These bourbon-y, peachy, minty and oh-so-refreshing pops are what you’ll want to enjoy on a hot summer day! Homemade mint simple syrup serves as the base, and that’s blended with fresh (or frozen) peaches and bourbon. Freeze until solid, put in the popsicle sticks, then enjoy! If you’re a fan of traditional juleps and enjoy a stiff drink, these popsicles are for you!

I swear, every summer, I’m all PEACHES! CHERRIES! Fresh fruittttttt!

Clearly, this summer is no different.

And today, I’m teaming up with my blog besties, Susannah and Madison, to bring y’all some boozy popsicles.

Because summer!

And because boozy popsicles are our favorite.

In April, I attended a blog conference in Charleston, and one afternoon, Meghan and I were walking around, talking all the blog things, and stumbled upon a boozy popsicle food truck.

It’s a thing.

And they were, as I’m sure you can imagine, delightful, and refreshing, and exactly what our afternoon needed.

This popsicle is inspired by the popsicle I had in Charleston, except I’m using peach instead of orange and bourbon instead of champagne.

Soooooo basically, it’s nothing like that one, flavor-wise, other than I love the memory of strolling the streets of downtown Charleston with a friend and snacking on a booze-filled popsicle.

A word of warning: If you don’t like bourbon, this is NOT the boozy popsicle for you. (I suggest Spiced Rum Horchata Popsicles and Pimm’s Pops if you’d like something less strong.)

But if you like bourbon? And peaches? And mint?

You’re gonna ADORE these!

It’s basically my Bourbon Peach Slush with a bunch of minty goodness added (because JULEP!) in popsicle form.

Ingredients

Mint Simple Syrup

  • 1/2 cup water
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 large bunch fresh mint

Peach Julep Popsicles

  • 10 oz. peaches , fresh or frozen
  • 2.5 oz. bourbon
  • Mint Simple Syrup

Instructions

Make the Mint Simple Syrup

  1. In a heavy-bottomed saucepan, combine the water and sugar.

  2. Heat over medium-high heat until the sugar has completely dissolved into the water.

  3. Remove from the heat, and add the mint.

  4. Let the ingredients steep for 30 minutes, then strain and set aside.

Make the Popsicles

  1. In the base of a blender, combine the peaches, bourbon and mint simple syrup.

  2. Blend until smooth.

  3. Pour into popsicle molds, then freeze overnight (or until frozen solid.)

  4. Serve cold, and enjoy all summer long!

Recipe Notes

Do not add additional alcohol to the popsicles. I know it’s tempting, but in my first attempt at this recipe, I added 4 oz. of bourbon. Every popsicle broke when I tried to pull them out of the molds because they were a slush consistency.
