Boozy Peaches n’ Cream Popsicles with Alibi Whiskey

May 27, 2014   //   by Shayna D   //   Blog, Diva Lifestyle  //  No Comments

The good folks over at Alibi Whiskey recently gifted us with a bottle of their premium American bourbon and while we love a good Old Fashioned or Whiskey Sour, we wanted to find a creative new way to utilize this delicious new spirit.  Pinterest to the rescue!  Online we found several recipes for “boozy” popsicles and settled on a delicious non-dairy one that called for fresh peaches and coconut milk (two of our summer-time favorites).  We gave the menu our own spin and ended up with a tasty and refreshing (adults-only) summer treat to share with our friends!
