Take a childhood favorite (remember Popsicles?), add vodka (or bourbon or sparkling wine), and freeze. The result? The coolest new cocktail party of the summer.

Bellini Pops Bittersweet Chocolate-Bourbon Pops
Bellini Pops
The combination of ripe summer peaches and Prosecco makes for a sweet frozen treat that tastes a lot like the popular cocktail.
  Bittersweet Chocolate-Bourbon Pops
Dark chocolate and bourbon make for a truly decadent treat.
     
Lemon-Vodka Cream Pops Tips on chilly success:

Shape: Almost any mold—from classic cylinders to whimsical rockets— will work. Or keep it simple and use small wax-lined paper cups, which peel off easily.

Freeze: To ensure that the pops freeze firmly, make certain your freezer is set to 0°F.

Serve: You can pile a colorful selection of ice pops on a platter and pass it, or serve them individually in glasses (which do a good job of catching drips).
Lemon-Vodka Cream Pops
A splash of citron vodka gives the classic cream pop a decidedly adult kick.
