More About This Recipe

  • Yo ho ho and a bottle of rum….for Dirty Pirate Popsicles, of course!These popsicles are a perfect summer treat with the Captain’s kick—and you can make them in the time it takes to say, “ARRRRR!”When I saw this recipe from Endless Simmer, I was taken back to my college years when I guzzled down Captain and Cokes (responsibly and while 21 years of age, of course). Who knew you could make a popsicle cocktail? A poptail, if you will? I’m officially obsessed and will be turning all of my favorite cocktails into poptails this summer.I heeded the advice from Endless Simmer and let my soda go flat as apparently the carbonation is bad for the freezing process.
  • When displaying your pops, use a piece of Styrofoam or floral foam to stand up your pops. I also decorated the display area with free pirate bunting flags and skull and crossbones flags.I also created a pirate ship template made out of construction paper to complete the pirate theme! Your poptails will look awesome riding around in a sweet pirate ship!The popsicle tastes exactly like a rum and Coke and fits the Dirty Pirate name quite well. Serve these Dirty Pirate Popsicles as the perfect end to an outdoor spring BBQ. Your friends will love these unexpected treats!

Thirsty Thursday - Dirty Pirate Popsicles

It’s Thirsty Thursday, again and this week’s feature isn’t exactly a drink…although let it sit out in the hot sun for a short period of time and it sure will be! Ever since I saw this recipe I’ve been wanting to try it (actually my husband really wanted me to make these). The Dirty Pirate Popsicles have a few of his favorites: Coke, Captain Morgan and Kahlua. So, get out your eye patch and be ready for a delicious, frozen treat. You’ll be shouting “shiver me timbers” in no time!

Dirty Pirate Popsicle

  1. Place all ingredients in a large pitcher and stir to combine. Pour mixture into popsicle molds.
  2. 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, run hot water on the outside of the popsicle mold for 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.

I recommend enjoying this frozen delight while floating in the pool on our Pirates Island Pool Float!

Cugino&rsquos - &lsquoDirty Pirate&rsquo

It&rsquos against the rules to reveal the secret recipe of &ldquoThe Dirty Pirate,&rdquo a drink that is described only as &ldquosweet and fruity&rdquo on the menu of Cugino&rsquos Italian Restaurant. Everyone knows what happens when you break a pirate oath, but I was determined to crack the recipe without walking the plank. After a little trickery&mdashand an obliging waitress&mdashI identified some of the delicious ingredients.

I mentioned my fruit allergies &mdash a trick no pirate ever caught on to &mdash and cranberry juice was confirmed as a main ingredient.

When I insisted that vodka had to be in a &ldquoDirty Pirate,&rdquo my server confessed it was &ldquonot a regular vodka,&rdquo stopping short of naming the flavor. My allergies to peaches and pineapple ruled those out.

The &ldquoDirty Pirate&rdquo tastes like a Long Island Ice Tea, but more fruity and savory. Since gin is in those, I asked if the specialty had &ldquoa clear booze that rhymed with &lsquosin&rsquo,&rdquo winking with the eye that wasn&rsquot covered with a patch. I got an affirmative on that. After two rounds of the &ldquodon&rsquot nod if it&rsquos true game,&rdquo I think it&rsquos safe to say rum and whiskey are also in a &ldquoDirty Pirate.&rdquo

The libation was served in a hurricane glass with lemon and lime slices.

Squeezing those into the drink added sourness to offset the drink&rsquos maraschino cherry. The &ldquoDirty Pirate&rdquo was noticeably flavorful and intoxicating. Cugino&rsquos had a &ldquotwo per customer&rdquo limit. That&rsquos a rule I didn&rsquot break.
