ABOUT POPTAILS

What’s better than an ice pop on a warm summer day? An ice pop with booze!
Introducing Poptails, a one-of-a-kind book that features all of your favorite cocktails in frozen-on-a-stick form. with 60 boozy recipes and 20 full-color photos, Poptails will have you partying all summer long with these icy treats:

  • Appletini
  • Lemon Drop
  • Tequila Sunrise
  • Margarita
  • irish Coffee
  • Bellini
  • Red Wine Sangria
  • and more!

These adult treats are perfect for pool parties, picnics, or barbecues. This book is a wonderful addition to the hip host’s library of tricks – cocktails-on-a-stick is just the thing to surprise and impress partygoers.

MY THOUGHTS
I received a copy of Poptails. The introduction covers commonly used tools and techniques that will be helpful in making your treats.
Chapters include:

  • Colorful Cocktails
  • Tropical Treats
  • Classic Cocktails
  • Fizzies and Wine
  • Fruity Refreshers
  • Party Drinks
  • Pudding and Cream
  • Dessert on a Stick

The recipes are all straightforward and easy to understand. The photos that are in the book are colorful. I’d love to see more photos in the book. I think the colors of the treat would help catch the eye and be useful in deciding which treats to make. This book would make a great gift for people that enjoy entertaining.
WIN IT!
ONE winner will receive a copy of Poptails.
