In the heat of summer, nothing beats an ice-cold popsicle. Ok, I am lying, one thing might beat it. Cherry Coke and Rum popsicles are my favorite low carb summer treat with the great combination of Cherry Coke Zero and Bacardi Rum for my new go-to frozen cocktail. The bonus is these are low-calorie, low carb boozy popsicles.
It doesn't matter if you want Cherry Coke, Cherry Coke Zero, Diet Coke, or good old traditional Coca-Cola Classic, the recipe is the same for these popsicles.
Soda + Rum + Popsicle Molds = Boozy Popsicles
Cherry Coke and Rum Popsicles
Ratios are everything with cocktails. It is no different for popsicles. Some days I want to have a 1:1 ratio of mixer to my alcohol. But, honestly not everyone wants to get rip-roaring drunk every day, right? When I decided I needed to get on the boozy popsicle bandwagon, I decided to use my beloved Cherry Coke Zero as the mixer. If you are a lover of cherry Coke but also avoiding carbs, this will be your new lover. I am obsessed.
I mad the ratio of the popsicles 3:1 of cherry coke zero to rum. Since I have cans of pop/soda, It was 1.5 cups of cherry Coke zero to ½ cup of rum. **These were VERY strong popsicles. So, don't be afraid to drop to ⅓ cup of rum.**Pour the cherry Coke Zero over top of the rum, and stir to combine. Then pour into your popsicle molds. Honestly, I ordered a box of 18 popsicle molds when I ordered mine since I knew my kids would want to make their own popsicles. The kids, of course, filled their popsicle molds up before I even had a chance to fill mine up.
I filled my molds a little better than ¾ full. I did not want the goodness to overflow. The mixture of cherry coke and rum filled six of these molds perfectly.
What you get your popsicles out of the freezer, the cherry coke and rum popsicles are the best low carb boozy popsicles you can have. I am seriously becoming a kid in love with popsicles again. I even stock the camper with my popsicles. People think a popsicle is innocent. Now, everyone will know my secret when they see me. Oh well, these cherry Coke and rum popsicles are too good not to share.
