Homemade Four Loko Popsicles
HOMEMADE FOUR LOKO POPSICLES
In the summer time, strange things happen. It must be the heat…mixed with the stash of original recipe Four Loko alcoholic energy drinks we still have in our garage, but I feel like this recipe was one that was bound to happen — Four Loko Popsicles. Just as a preface, this is a terrible idea.
Four Loko‘s flavor profile was never its strong suit. In fact, one of the best ways of consuming the now banned substance was as quickly as possible, in order to get as drunk/wired as possible, without having to savor the taste for too long.
By turning it into a Popsicle, you are doing the opposite of what God intended — savoring the atrocious flavors of the drink. But with the recent appeal of alcoholic frozen treats like Vodka Popsicles and Watermelon Mojito Popsicles, we decided we’d give it a douchey-spin of our own, fittingly created from the original caffeine recipe and frozen in a blue party cup mold:
Everything was done scientifically [/ofcourseitwas]. Couple blue plastic party cups, tall metal spoons for handles, clear tape and your favorite (or available) flavor of Four Loko.
No — the tape wasn’t for added taste. It’s actually to hold the spoon in the center of the cup during the freezing period. Tape it down to the circumference of the cup’s opening. Unless you like to suck on popsicles at a weird angle. We won’t judge.
Put your popsicle cups in the freezer — preferably alongside frozen vegetables and bags of oversized pita bread. We then proceeded to let freeze overnight. You’ll want to find the coldest freezer and settings available, because although the alcohol content is freezable, it will take a bit of work for it to get past a slushy stage.
