Pumpkin Spice Lattes might officially be back at Starbucks, but that doesn't mean summer's over. If you're looking for a way to celebrate the last warm, carefree days of the season, make a batch (or two!) of these gin and tonic Popsicles.

Essentially a frozen gin and tonic on a stick, this is an ingenious way to transform the classic cocktail. I mean sure, you could mix up a pitcher of G&Ts when friends stop by this weekend, but these ice pops are way more fun.

All you have to do is pour a mixture of the three main ingredients — gin, tonic, and lime — into Popsicle molds and then add in some cucumber slices before letting them do their thing in the freezer. They'll need at least six hours to freeze, so plan accordingly.

And just because you're making Popsicles doesn't mean you want to use bottom-shelf gin. Splurge on some good gin and tonic and take the time to freshly squeeze the limes — it'll make all the difference in the end. Cheers! (Sorta.)
