Wedding Idea of the week: Popsicle Cocktail Hour

Good morning my lovelies! Hope the sun’s out and shining wherever you are

When it comes to weddings I believe in the phrase “It’s your wedding, do what you want to do”.  So, going by this why not try a cocktail hour that is a little different from the norm….We like the idea of cocktail ice lollies!

If your wedding is taking place in the summer, these will serve as a great idea and with a vast array of cocktails available you’ll be spoilt for choice when it comes to selecting which one you want to serve on your special day.

Below I have provided you with a recipe to some delicious margarita ice lollies. And if your wedding will have children in attendance, I’ve also included a child friendly pineapple and mango smoothie recipe, so they don’t miss out!

Margarita ice lollies
Ingredients for 12

  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1 cup water
  • 1 cup fresh squeezed lime juice (8-12 small limes, usually)
  • 1/4 cup silver tequila
  • 1/4 cup orange liqueur
  • 12 3 oz. disposable paper cups
  • 12 wooden ice lolly sticks or spoons


  • Heat water and sugar in a small sauce pan until completely dissolved and the water is clear. Leave to cool.
  • Pour into a pitcher with lime juice, tequila, and orange liqueur
  • Pour 2 1/2 ounces (5 Tbsp.) of margarita into each cup
  • Place cups into a baking dish and put the dish in the freezer
  • After about 2 hours, start checking the ice lollies. Once they’re frozen enough to support the wooden stick, insert a stick into each ice lolly, pushing 3/4 of the way into it.
  • Let freeze several more hours or until completely frozen
