White Russian Poptails

I definitely had to work for this drink, Popsicle.  Three experiments and two slightly tipsy and giddy ladies later, my mother and I finally got ourselves a tasty Cocktail Popsicle recipe perfect for a scorching summer afternoon.  Many of you know how much I looove my White Russians, but I just had to figure out a way to put it in frozen form for the season.  And, honestly, I don't know if it was the heat or the relief of finally discovering the correct alcohol proportions, but this exceeded all my expectations for grownup popsicles.  In fact, I may never go back to slurping a White Russian out of a glass ever again!  Creamy with a pop of coffee from the Kahlua, this was one fun frozen treat.

What you'll need:  makes 6 - 8 Popsicles

2 jiggers Kahlua (2 parts)
1 jigger Vanilla Vodka (1 part)
3/4 cup half and half
3/4 cup water

In a small bowl, pour in the Kahlua, Vodka, half and half and water.  Mix together.  Refrigerate for about an hour or until cold.  Mix again and pour the mixture into plastic popsicle molds and place in the popsicle sticks (I found the wider the popsicle mold base the better - less breakage when extracting).  Put in the freezer for about 4 - 6 hours or until completely frozen.  Run the molds under warm water for about 2 - 3 seconds.  Carefully extract the popsicles and eat immediately!
