It’s Thirsty Thursday, again and this week’s feature isn’t exactly a drink…although let it sit out in the hot sun for a short period of time and it sure will be! Ever since I saw this recipe I’ve been wanting to try it (actually my husband really wanted me to make these). The Dirty Pirate Popsicles have a few of his favorites: Coke, Captain Morgan and Kahlua. So, get out your eye patch and be ready for a delicious, frozen treat. You’ll be shouting “shiver me timbers” in no time!
Dirty Pirate Popsicle
2 1/2 cups Coke
1/3 cup Captain Morgan Spiced Rum
1/3 cup Kahlua
Place all ingredients in a large pitcher and stir to combine. Pour mixture into popsicle molds.
Freeze for about 2 hours or until mixture starts to solidify enough to hold a popsicle stick upright. Insert popsicle sticks and finish freezing popsicles overnight. To release, run hot water on the outside of the popsicle mold for 2-3 seconds.
*Slightly flat Coke will produce a popsicle that stays frozen longer. 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.
I recommend enjoying this frozen delight while floating in the pool on our Pirates Island Pool Float!
