Vodka Freezer Pops Make You Feel Like A Kid Again (But With A Buzz)

As a Florida native I know that when it's summertime, there are only a few things you can actively do without dying of a heat stroke: swim, sleep and drink. 

Drinking and sleeping are arguably the best of the three activities, and for me, they tend to go hand-in-hand. When it's over 95 degrees, I usually fight to conduct the majority of my social interactions inside where there's direct access to air conditioning and ice cubes. However, I occasionally have to step out of my room and into the sun. 

As a twenty-something, most of these encounters are just sitting around in a circle and drinking — which is kind of the worst possible thing you could do when it feels like the temperature outside is aggressively rising. But nonetheless, we do it all the time. 


Now I don't know if you know this, but drinking warm beer is very gross. So gross, in fact, that I'd just rather be sweaty and sober. But with this new wave of alcoholic treats, I might have discovered something worth staying outside for. 

Vodka Ice Pops. 

Infused with juicy fruit and tasty vodka, these popsicles/fruit sorbets/slushies are exactly what's missing from my steamy summer days. 

Made from Firebox, Icycls come in apple, black currant and lemon and lime, and are only $18 for a pack of six. Perfect for a having a few friends over or if you just want to drink by yourself in that kiddie pool you blew up in your backyard. No judgment. Mostly because I've definitely done that before.  


Think of how cool you'll be when everyone shows up to the beach/river/pond/other body of water with a cooler full of boring old beer and over-done margaritas in a can, and you have vodka ice pops. You'll be the hit of every party. I'm 110% sure of it. 

So rather than stock your freezer with microwavable meals — or worst, normal, NON-ALCOHOLIC ice pops — see how many packs of these babies you can fit in there. 

Better buy as many as you can, it's going to be a long summer.
