These Refreshing Cocktail Pops Deserve a Spot in Your Cooler

There's nothing I crave more on a hot summer day than those classic freeze pops (or Otter Pops, as some call them) I devoured as a child. But these new adult-friendly cocktail pops, or poptails, if you will, from Cutwater Spirits might one-up those nostalgic treats. These refreshing, and not to mention Instagram-worthy, pops come in four delicious flavors: margarita, gin melon, vodka mule, and rum and cola. My initial pick would be the margarita flavor, but honestly, there isn't a flavor combo in the mix that I would turn down.

While the canned cocktail brand initially launched these boozy pops late last year in Southern California, they'll be available nationwide starting in July for $25 per 12-pack, at local wine and spirits stores. And at 7 percent ABV per pop, the treats are also gluten-free and contain no artificial sweeteners. Though there's certainly no shortage of frozen alcohol options this summer, these pops are definitely worth adding to your cooler. Check out the poptails ahead, and make sure to be on the lookout for them in local stores come July.
