We have a thing for getting sideways with classic cocktails and then turning them into poptails. This week the classic rum and coke has been flipped to a Dirty Pirate.
That’s rum and coke with a some Kahlua. While we’d love to take credit for this awesomely named cocktail, we can’t, but we are taking credit for turning it into a poptail ,at the suggestion of a co-worker. Pirates, Coke and booze, yeah, Thursday is getting better already. And just in case you need a variation, replace the Kahlua with peach schnapps for a Dirty Pirate Hooker. Play nice and play safe. Happy Pirating this Thursday.
Dirty Pirate Popsicle
- 2 1/2 cups Coke
- 1/3 cup Captain Morgan Spiced Rum
- 1/3 cup Kahlua
- Place all ingredients in a large glass and stir to combine. Pour mixture into popsicles mold.
- Freeze for about 2 hours or until mixture starts to solidify enough to hold a popsicle stick upright. Insert popsicle sticks and finish freezing popsicles overnight. To release popsicles run hot water on the outside of popsicle molds for a 2-3 seconds.
*Slightly flat Coke will produce a popsicle that stays frozen longer. To quickly and manually flatten out the carbonation, empty out enough Coke from a 2-liter bottle to leave a 3-inch space from top of bottle to top of coke. Place cap back on and shake vigorously for 10 seconds. Set aside to leave bubbles to subside.
Wow! Coke, Captain Morgan spiced rum and Kahlua.
