It’s Popsicle Week happy hour!
You didn’t think I would end Popsicle Week without giving you a boozy popsicle, did you? I realize that it may be early in the morning when this post hits the interwebs, but it is Friday and the last day of Popsicle Week. Billy at Wit & Vinegar has hosted this party and you should seriously check out his website because this post almost made me blow beer out my nose.
Speaking of beer, we used some boozy hard root beer in these popsicles. You could substitute some regular root beer, but I don’t know whyyyyyy in tarnation you would want to do that.
I know these boozy root beer popsicles aren’t quite as colorful as these or these, but I’m here to tell you that they’re just as delicious and totally festive for the popsicle party.
And they even get all kind of foamy on top (or bottom?) just they way a root beer float (boozy or otherwise) does!
I couldn’t think of a better way to say good-bye and see you next year Popsicle Week! Cheers, y’all! Have a fantastic weekend!

Boozy Root Beer Float Popsicles
- 2-3 cups your favorite vanilla ice cream softened
- 1 12 ounce bottle of your favorite hard root beer
Scoop ice cream into molds about 1/2 - 3/4 full
Slowly pour root beer in over the ice cream, careful not to overflow
Let root beer settle for the foam to go down and slowly add more
Repeat until full - I had a little bit of root beer leftover, which I promptly drank
Cover and insert sticks

It’s been sooooo long since I’ve had a root beer float, Rachelle! Could popsicle week possibly continue to next week, I wonder 😉 ? Love these boozy pops, girl….perfect for popsicle week and even better ’cause it’s freakin’ Friday!

This is the perfect way to end popsicle week, Rach! I haven’t had a root beer float in ages and I’m thinking these are the perfect way to get reacquainted with that old school classic, in pop form! LOVE that you used hard root beer! And I think these are just as pretty as the previous two, fyi! Cheers girlfriend!
I am a big hard root beer fan, so these are the Popsicles I need in my life. I can see myself sitting out in the hammock with one of these!

Oh boozy popsicles are the best! I’ve made root beer float pops before, but never with liquor, so I’m loving this fun twist! Looks SO perfect for a hot day!
Yum!! This looks fantastic and perfect for the summer! Thanks for sharing 🙂
These are SO fun! I love that you made boozy root beer popsicles! The best way to end off popsicle week!

Now how did I miss this one? This sounds amazing, Rachelle! Those new(ish) hard root beers are so fun. (Have you seen the hard orange soda and ginger ales? Not so sure about those…) And then taking them and turning ’em into the perfect summer treat? Genius I say! Genius!
