Boozy popsicles!By Vanessa

Let’s face it, it’s HOT out! Florida summers are brutal. Unfortunately, there is only so much clothing you are allowed, by law, to take off. Sometimes a bikini or board shorts just doesn’t cut it. You need to get cool from the inside!

Enter the popsicle. It was that sweet, summertime treat that you once begged for as a child. They may have turned you tongue every color of the rainbow, but they were worth every lick. Now, you’re an adult. You can have Popsicles whenever you want. As an adult, you can also indulge in alcohol whenever you want (but not while driving). Why not combine two of your favorite things and beat the heat while doing it?
