Struggling to come up with a creative idea for a weekend cocktail party? How about an all-frozen event, with boozy popsicles as the signature “drinks”?

Be sure to check out the tips on the front page—like making sure your freezer is set to the right temperature and serving the pops in cocktail glasses.
