Lemon drop martinis are my all-time favorite drinks in the Martini family of flavors. In fact, my upcoming book features the best lemon drop martini recipe on the planet, created by my good friend Ameneh Gounili. One evening as I was sipping on one of her refreshing gulp-worthy martinis it occurred to me that they would make a pretty fabulous popsicles dessert on a warm evening with friends. That’s how this sweet and sour adult treat was born.

Made with just seven simple ingredients and my favorite stainless steel popsicle molds, these boozy popsicles are simple to make and freeze in only four hours. Disclaimer, although they freeze well, they also melt quickly. Unlike a good lemon drop martini that you sip slowly to enjoy, make sure you have a few napkins nearby because these bad girls will need to be eaten pretty quickly before they melt. I warn you though, don’t let their pretty appearance fool you. They can pack a small punch for lightweights like me after only 1 Popsicle.

If you want to impress your martini-loving friends this summer, give this recipe a try. They make the perfect adult summer treat for parties, bbq’s, or just a quiet evening on the deck with friends. Cheers!
