Hidden Cocktails (Summer Edition): Watermelon Moscow Mule Popsicles

Stay cool the cool way

With the summer heat bearing down on us, a refreshing drink can be a blessing. It’s important to find the perfect drink to pair with our picnics, backyard barbecues, and beachside adventures. Discovering something that’s delicious, sweet, and refreshing will make you welcome at any summertime hang out. This week we’ve found the Watermelon Moscow Mule Popsicles.


This snack gives you all the childhood delight of having a popsicle with all the adult maturity of having a drink. These popsicles are perfect for anyone looking to cool down while they escape the summer heat.
