I bet you thought I was kidding with my Booze and Popsicles Party invitations a couple of weeks ago. Well, not only did I throw a boozy popsicle party, but it was a total hit. Who knew that so many people liked their libations in frozen form? Here are some of the highlights from the party.
First, the menu:
For those looking for a kick, there were Mimosa Popsicles, Sangria Popsicles, Lemongrass Pineapple Granita (with vodka), and Lemon Thyme Granita (with triple sec). The milder offerings were Chili Cantaloupe Popsicles, Green Tea Avocado Popsicles, Rose Water Ice Cream, and Chocolate Walnut Brownies. And to drink, we had Lavender Lemonade and Sweet Mint Tea.
Everything was good, but the popsicles were definitely the star of the show. People especially loved the Mimosa Popsicles, and the Cantaloupe Chili Popsicles were my personal favorite.
I wanted to have some outdoor seating, so I strung up big oval paper lantern surrounded by some mason jar hanging lanterns and some teeny tiny hanging poufs that I cut out of honeycomb paper. After a brief rain scare, the weather cleared for an awesome evening.
It was a big day for all of us, but Louis hung in there like a champ (with the exception of a nap or two).
All in all, it was a really fun party. I am so excited to share recipes with you guys, so stay tuned!
