ply 'em with popsicles

Growing up, we were stationed in Hawaii for six years. My mom became something of an expert at making popsicles. She had one of those Tupperware kits where you pour the juice into a tray of puddin' pop shaped cups, then insert the sticks (reusable plastic - she got mad when we chewed 'em) and freeze. I remember getting most of the flavors of Kool-aid, banana pudding, and a cool variety of others.
Now I just buy the 250-pack of ice-pops for less than $2 at Wal-Mart and on hot weekends like this one, Daniel gets as many as he wants. But can you imagine, if I can get my hands on one of those old Tupperware kits, sweet-tea popsicles? Or coffee made just the way I like it? Or margarita popsicles? Now that's what I call a frozen treat!

There is a recipe for acoholic and non alcoholic ice pops. You can find the molds at the $1.00 stores or you can pay a small price for them at the regular home stores like Bed, bath and beyond, Kmart or Linen and Things. I made them with alcohol. The only problem is they melt fast and it ends up running down your arm if you don't eat them fast.
