Actually Boozy Gin & Tonic Popsicles Exist and We Need Them Now
There are few things better on a hot summer day than an icy popsicle straight from the freezer, but a new brand of alcoholic popsicles is taking the warm weather treat from the sandbox to the bar. Gianni’s Alcoholic Ice Popsicles isn’t the first brand to freeze cocktail flavors to a stick, but their flavors of lemony Gin & Tonic and prosecco-spiked Peach Bellini are particularly well-suited to summertime day drinking (or licking, in this case). Plus, they’ll only set you back about $4 for a four-pack.
At 4.5 percent ABV, eating one of the pops is akin to drinking a beer—but a lot more fun. And, as The Drinks Business points out, these new frosty treats are a cheaper alternative to some other alcoholic popsicles on the market, like Gianni’s main competitor Fortnum & Mason whose boozesicles go for about $65 for a pack of 10.
The spiked pops are available in the freezer section of grocery chain Aldi—though they’re only stocking U.K. stores at the moment. Should the popsicles be the success we’re betting they will be, the global chain could expand sales to its 10,000 stores in 17 other countries, which includes the U.S.For now, you’ll just have to settle for sucking on your own homemade booze-pops (like these Margarita popsicles) while you wait for more brands to catch on to the genius trend of boozy pops.
