For many Americans, popsicles are reminiscent of childhood. They remind us of the long summer days we spent biking around the neighborhood for hours, only stopping to cool down with a frozen treat. While frozen popsicles are still a kiddie favorite, these sweet treats aren't just for the young ones anymore. Recently, we've seen popsicles reinvented to satisfy adult tastes. Many of these new popsicle hybrids use farm fresh ingredients and cocktail essentials for a grown-up palate.

With that being said, no Fourth of July is complete without a frozen treat to keep you cool while bronzing poolside or at an outdoor barbecue. While you could always run to your local market and pick up a pack of these sweet summer snacks, it's definitely way more fun to make them at home. Plus, with a homemade popsicle, you don't have to play the guessing game about the ingredients inside.
