When you’re a mum, it's especially important to get together with your girlfriends for some “girl time” to share experiences and recharge yourself. And now that Summer’s here, it’s a great opportunity to put a new spin on the cocktails at these get togethers.
I feel truly blessed to have a really fantastic network of very supportive girlfriends and we’ve all become pretty “pro” at making sure we always find some time to get together with each other on a fairly regular basis. One of the great excuses we often use to make this happen, is to celebrate each other’s birthdays. For myself, I don’t really care what the occasion is, I just love getting together with my girls, chatting it up and bonding. Most of our get togethers are super casual and we all bring pot luck style food. And as you might imagine, cocktails are also often a featured component of these get togethers too.
Recently, we had a couple of warm days so we took our birthday celebration poolside. It turned out to be a pretty perfect day, with all of us relaxing poolside and chatting it up endlessly. And isn’t getting time recharging with your best girlfriends, exactly the kind of day that every mum dreams about after running the Mummy Fast Track for too many consecutive days or weeks?
So now that we’ve got lots of warm Summer days and nights ahead of us, it’s the perfect time to switch up the usual girl time cocktails, for some fun & refreshing “boozy” popsicles that are sure to keep the conversation fun and lively.
The skies the limit on the number of different creative combinations you can put together to come up with your own favourite popsicle flavor, so take a look at a few of these examples to get some inspiration for making your own popsicle creations.
If you like Mimosas, you’re bound to like these Mother’s Little Helper Mimosa Pops. And they’re also pretty gorgeous to look at too!
However, if you had something in mind that's more cooling and refreshing, but without being too sweet, you might like to try out these Cucumber Honeydew Margarita Popsicles. And if you're having a Mexican food themed pot luck, these would the perfect complement to a spicy meal.
If you're a Mojito fan, these Mojito Popsicles are sure to win you over and their cool green colour looks very appealing at warm summer get togethers.
So if I've got you hooked on the idea of making your own gorgeous popsicles this summer, you can find some non-alcoholic recipes in this People’s Pops Recipe Book that you'll even be able to share with the kids too!
