We’re big fans of these popsicles from Cocktail Crafty that are perfect for your all-American celebrations. Their layers make them more time-consuming than most liquor-spiked pops, but the end result is totally Pinterest-worthy.

Don’t be tempted to add more liquor than the recipe calls for, or you will end up with boozy slush.

This recipe makes six pops.

Cherry Bomb Layer
1/2 ounce cherry-flavored vodka
2 ounces black cherry juice
2 ounces lemon juice, freshly squeezed
2 ounces simple syrup

Piña Colada Layer
1/4 ounce coconut rum
1/4 ounce pineapple rum 
4 ounces coconut water
2 ounces simple syrup

Blue Hawaii Layer
1/4 ounce blue curacao
1/4 ounce vodka
4 ounces orange-pineapple juice
2 ounces simple syrup
Optional: 1 to 3 drops blue food coloring

Prepare each layer’s mixture separately.
1. Add 1 1/2 ounces of Cherry Bomb mixture to each popsicle mold, then freeze for 2 hours.
2. Remove molds from freezer and add 1 1/2 ounces of Piña Colada mixture to each mold, then freeze for 2 hours.
3. Remove molds from freezer and add 1 1/2 ounces of Blue Hawaii mixture to each popsicle mold, then freeze for 2 hours.
4. To serve, run the exteriors of the molds under warm water for a few seconds to make it easier to remove popsicles.
