for the Banana Bourbon Popsicle

makes 14-16 popsicles

Author note: Remember, alcohol does not freeze at the same temperature as water. The more alcohol used the more “slushy” the popsicle will be. Anything more than listed below result in a slush instead of a popsicle. This popsicle mixture also works well frozen into ice cubes to be served in cocktails or orange juice.

3 cups water

2 cups sugar

1 teaspoon banana imitation extract

1/4 to 1/2 cup bourbon (depending on preference)

yellow food coloring (optional)

  1. Combine the water, sugar and extract into a saucepan. Cook over medium-low heat until the sugar is dissolved. If using food coloring, add drops of yellow food coloring to achieve desired yellow color.
  2. Remove the banana popsicle mixture from the cooktop. Let cool for 15 minutes. Stir in the bourbon and mix well.
  3. Pour the mixture into popsicle molds and place into the freezer until frozen solid.
  4. Remove when ready to serve.
