Push the summer beer, wine and canned cocktails aside, frozen icicles are filling the cooler this summer. Whether the icy cold cocktail is refreshing on a scorching hot day or that little taste of kid like exuberance, it is time to embrace the cold this summer.

Thinking about these “adult” frozen pops, there are many ways to enjoy them. While most people will just eat one straight out of the package, they can be used to make a fun cocktail.

For example, pouring a mixer, sparkling water or even a hard seltzer into a glass and allowing the frozen pop to melt into it makes for a tasty beverage. Just be cautious of the amount of alcohol drink. Although that sip can be a sweet treat, it will pack a punch. Remembering to hydrate is always a good idea.

Here are some of the best frozen icicles for the summer

Bud Light Seltzer

Bud Light Seltzer is celebrating its retro summer and these frozen beverages have soared in popularity. Plus, the flavors have a taste of nostalgia. If you love Cherry Limeade, this option is a must try. The other flavors are Blue Raspberry and Summer Ice flavors. Each frozen treat has 5% ABV and is less than 100 calories.


Natty Light and its Naturdays brand has taken over summer fun. That combination of sweet yet tart beverages are perfect for days at the lake or lounging by the pool. There is always a reason to open a Naturdays.

The Naturdays frozen Icicles are available in just two flavors, Strawberry Lemonade and Pineapple Lemonade. Both a little sweet, but totally refreshing on a hot day.

Daily’s Pop Tails

Daily’s always knows how to mix up a great cocktail and these alcohol infused freezer pops are available in three flavors, strawberry, watermelon and green apple. Why not skip that boozy watermelon for one of these treats.

Available in a variety pack of all three flavors, it is perfect for summer parties. Plus, each pop is only 90 calories, which is definitely less than another s’mores around the campfire.


Many people enjoy Cutwater’s Spirits canned cocktails but their frozen icicles are quite refreshing, too. These frozen pops have a little bigger kick with 7% ABV, but the variety of flavors are quite tasty. From the lime margarita to the rum and cola, these flavors tend to be more cocktail like. Sold in a variety pack, there is one that will quickly become a favorite.

Truly Lemonade Freeze Pops

Truly might be a favorite hard seltzer but the Truly Lemonade Freeze Pops are quite refreshing. Available in three flavors, Strawberry Lemonade, Mango Lemonade and Original Lemonade, these frozen pops pair with almost anything. Truthfully the mango lemonade is the most unique flavor in the bunch. Everyone might be fighting over that option.

Fishers Island Frozen Spirit Pops

For whiskey fans, Fishers Island Frozen Spirit Pops are the top choice. With both vodka and whiskey options, that honey-sweetened lemonade flavor is perfect on a warm summer afternoon. Just be cautious with how easy this frozen treat goes down.
