Month in Photos - June

Well, guys, we made it another month. It feels like we should have a mini celebration every time we make it through another month of 2020. Thankfully, June was a much busier month for me than others. Chicago started opening outdoor patios, I was able to visit my sister and brother-in-law in Charleston, and of course, I spent extra time with my pups at my parents' house. Catch up on this months' blog posts and how I spent my month below.

Tropical Cocktail Popsicles

Last week, in honor of the first official day of summer, I shared my first batch of popsicle recipes. They were filled with the classics: mojito, margarita, moscow mule, cosmopolitan, and paloma. Today, I'm taking us on vacation with the best tropical cocktails. You'll find popsicle recipes perfect for pool parties, a day at the beach, or just some fun in the sun.

Note: Adding alcohol will make your popsicles on the slushier side, so if you'd like a more solid pop, add less alcohol than noted below.


Find recipes to your favorite tropical popsicles below!

STRAWBERRY DAIQUIRI

PINA COLADA

SEX ON THE BEACH

TEQUILA SUNRISE

RASPBERRY FROSÉ

I hope you enjoy all ten popsicle recipes (responsibly) this summer!
