The 12 Days of Christmas Mocktails Day Four:

Well who doesn't love a drink and an icy pole at the same time? This is super fun to serve to grownups and kids alike, though leave the chilli out for the kids versions, we suggest.

You can either buy some orange icy poles (iced lollies, popsicles depending on where in the world you are from!) or you can make our super simple version found HERE. We think the fun of the icy pole making is worth the trouble...I mean. Why call this a recipe otherwise?
