Summer is almost to a close and that makes me sad! I love summer but this one just breezed right by me before I knew it. I sure do hope winter does the us the same courtsey. I feel like since summer is ending we need one last shabang before it is finally over! I am certain I am not the only one who feels this way! One thing your end of summer party must have are Dirty Pirate Popsicles! I found this recipe from endlesssimmer.com but decided to add a little of my own pizzazz to it. These are a necessity I feel like. Dirty Pirate Popsicles are a perfect mix between summer and fall!
2 1/2 cups Cola or Diet Cola
1/3 cup Captain Morgan Spiced Rum
1/3 cup Kahlua
1/4 cup Chocolate Frozen Yogurt
1.Place all ingredients in a large bowl and stir to combine. Pour mixture into popsicles molds. (you could even place the mix in ice cube trays to make revers drinks if popsicles aren’t an option)
2. Freeze for approximately 2 hours or until mixture starts to solidify enough to hold a popsicle stick.
3. 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
*I keep hearing a rumour that if you use cola that has gone a little flat the mixture freezes better . To quickly and manually flatten out the carbonation, empty out enough Coke from a 2-liter bottle to leave a 3-inch space from top of bottle to top of coke. Place cap back on and shake vigorously for 10 seconds. Set aside to leave bubbles to subside.
