The summer heat will be in full swing before you know it, and you’re going to need something to get you over it.
Thankfully, there are some supercilious treats out there for adults that will make your time spent outdoors this summer a whole lot more pleasurable.
Here’s one to drop into your pool bag: Slim Chillers Skinny Freezers vodka ice pops, which come in a sleeve, just like those colourful pops you loved as a kid (only better!).
Whether you’re hosting a patio party, sitting poolside or lounging on the shore, these 100-calorie boozy, icy treats are bound to help you beat the heat.
These delightful adult pops come in four cocktail flavours, including cosmopolitan, watermelon lemonade, appletini and lemon drop. Yummy!
According to the brand, these are available at retailers such as Costco and Lee’s Discount Liquor, but you can also check out the official website to find a location that carries these pops near you, or make your own.
Of course, these Skinny Freezers aren’t the only way you can enjoy alcohol in a delicious frozen form.
