Coke Float Popsicles

traditional popsicles and dirty coke poptails

Of course, we always serve Coke at all of our parties and get-togethers, but I thought it would be fun to serve some frozen on a stick to celebrate Dad and his favorite drink.  Let’s enjoy a traditional Coke Float Popsicle by way of ice cold Coke, vanilla ice cream….and don’t forget the cherry on top! and a Dirty Coke Poptail – Creamy coconut and lime popsicle served upside down in a glass of ice cold Coke.

Did you know that you can create personalized Coke bottles with the names of your friends and family on them?  In my husband’s opinion, the little glass bottles are the best!  and he should know 😉  In the 29 years we’ve been married, Coke has always been his beverage of choice.  We joke that he bleeds Coke.  

Since Father’s Day and his birthday are just around the corner, I thought we could make them a little extra special by personalizing the iconic eight-ounce glass “Share a Coke” bottles with “Dad” and “Steve” from ShareaCoke.com.

Anything customized is is always more fun! right?  What Dad wouldn’t love his name on a Coke bottle? 😉 From Father’s Day to graduations, birthdays to weddings, summer barbecues to Fourth of July, “Share a Coke” is perfect for celebrating life’s most shareable moments. 

 

 

The key to using carbonated soda in a popsicle is to use flat soda.  Just open the soda, pour it into a glass and let it sit an hour or more in the refrigerator, so it stays cold, but loses some of the fizz.

Traditional Coke Float Popsicles

  1. Fill popsicle mold a quarter of the way up with flat Coke. Place 1-2 tablespoons of vanilla ice cream into form, drop one maraschino cherry into the mold and pour a little more coke on top. Leave about 1/4″ on top for the popsicle to expand when it freezes.
  2. Freeze for about 1-2 hours or until mixture starts to solidify enough to hold a popsicle stick upright. Insert popsicle sticks and continue freezing popsicles for at least 5 hours, or overnight. To release popsicles run hot water on the outside of popsicle molds for 2-3 seconds.

TIP:  if you don’t have a popsicle mold, you can use small (3-5 oz) paper cups.

Dirty Coke Poptail; a Creamy Coconut and Lime popsicle served upside down in a class of ice cold Coke at TidyMom.net #shareacoke

Have you heard of a Dirty Coke?  It’s a Coke served with coconut, lime, and cream.  Well, we’ve made Dirty Coke Popsicles in the past, but this time I decided to make a Dirty Coke Poptail; a Creamy Coconut and Lime popsicle served upside down in a glass of ice cold Coke.  The creamy coconut and lime popsicles are good all on their own, but once they’re dunked in a glass of ice-cold Coke the flavors start mixing and the party starts.

both Coke Float Popsicles were a big hit with the family, and make a great treat for entertaining.
