Spiked Kiwi Strawberry Sparkling Ice Pops
This post is sponsored by Sparkling ICE but the content and opinions expressed here are my own.
Spiked Kiwi Strawberry Sparkling Ice Pops are made with vodka soaked strawberries and kiwis filled in a popsicle mold with Sparkling Ice Strawberry Kiwi and a bit more vodka for an adult ice pop guaranteed to cool you off this summer. Looking for something non alcoholic? Follow the recipe and leave out the vodka!
These Spiked Kiwi Strawberry Sparkling Ice Pops come from inspiration of a vodka spritzer which happens to be one of my favorite summer cocktails because they are so refreshing and lower calorie. This July heat has me in serious need of a cool off so the popsicle form really hits the spot and I think you will enjoy them just as much as I do!
I turn to Sparkling Ice to help make amazing, guilt free vodka spritzers, these Spiked Kiwi Strawberry Sparkling Ice Pops or to simply toss in my beach bag while laying out by the pool to stay hydrated.

Spiked Kiwi Strawberry Sparkling Ice Pops
Recipe time! Spiked Kiwi Strawberry Sparkling Ice Pops are seriously fun and perfect for a pool party with friends or just as treat on a crazy hot summer day.
What you need:
- Sparkling Ice Kiwi Strawberry (you may swap for one of the other 15 Sparkling Ice flavors).
- Popsicle molds set of 10.
- Popsicle sticks.
- Vodka (80 proof).
- Friends to share with.
How to make Spiked Kiwi Strawberry Sparkling Ice Pops:
- Slice the fruit.
- Place the sliced fruit into vodka. Make sure to soak the fruit in a glass container for 2 hours. Stay away from plastic containers while soaking. This is an optional step to soak the fruit for a higher alcohol content.
- Place the soaked fruit into the popsicle mold. Save the vodka for next step.
- Use 3 ounces of vodka and 12 ounces of Sparkling Ice Kiwi Strawberry and mix in a bowl. The ratio has to be right for the ice pops to freeze properly so if you add extra vodka- you may not get an ice pop. Make sure to measure everything for this step. Also, look at alcohol content of the vodka. I used 80 proof! A higher alcohol content needs a lower freezing temperature so you would have to either adjust your freezer or use less vodka.
- Place the sticks into ice pops and freeze for at least 4 hours.
- Remove the ice pops from molds. I just set them on the container for a few minutes and then gently wiggle the sticks until it is released.
- Time to enjoy your spiked ice pop and have a sparkling summer.
