6 Boozy Treats to Beat the Heat by

If you're a summer baby like me, you can relate to this post. Since turning 21, celebrating in the sun has become a task because beers and ciders aren't always refreshing, especially when they get warm so quickly. So when I saw this article, I knew I had to share. Check out these six boozy treats to beat the heat provided by

1. Grapefruit & Tequila Paloma Ice Pops

When I went to Mexico, we loved drinking palomas. They're so refreshing and paired with grapefruit as an ice pop--you'll surely cool off! Try out this recipe!

2. Watermelon Campari Granita

The Watermelon Campari Granita is so simple to make that your freezer almost does all the work for you. Add watermelon puree, sugar and Campari to a shallow pan and after a few steps, you’ll have a nice chilled dessert with the perfect blend of sweet and bitter. Get the recipe!

3. Bourbon Baked Apples

This apple crisp inspired dessert will have you drooling (maybe from the booze and the taste). Take a couple of apples, pour some bourbon (or dark rum) on them, stuff with cinnamon crumble and top with icecream. Yum! Get the recipe!

4. Beer-Soaked Watermelon

It’s painfully simple to do and ridiculously delicious to eat. What beer you use is your choice. Pick anything ranging from a light wheat beer to a hoppy IPA. Try out the recipe!

5. Whiskey-Lucky Charms Ice Cream

Okay, I need to try this! Set your inner child free by combining whiskey with a favorite childhood cereal. We like Lucky Charms! This recipe from the Coolhaus Ice Cream Book definitely takes some effort. But for the ultimate boozy treat, it’s worth it! Sandwich this dessert between sugar cookies for a palm-sized piece of heaven. Being an adult might not be so bad after-all! Try this recipe!

6. Tequila-Spiked Mango Popsicles with Chile

This reminds me of the Spicy Margaritas Nobu has which is my personal favorite! Mangos and chiles are a classic pairing and the duo is joined by agave, lime juice, and three ounces of tequila to make it the most delicious treat of all. Get the recipe!

We hope these boozy treats help you beat the heat and devour the details of summer!
