  • 1/4 cup fresh-squeezed ruby red grapefruit juice
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 1 3/4 cups ginger beer
  • 3 tablespoons ruby red vodka such as Deep Eddy
  • 2 1/2 tablespoons fresh-squeezed lime juice


  • In a very small pot or saucepan set over high heat, stir together the grapefruit juice and the sugar. Bring to a boil then reduce to a simmer and cook, stirring occasionally, for a couple of minutes until the sugar completely dissolves. Set aside to cool.
  • In a quart-sized measuring cup, gently stir together the ginger beer, ruby red vodka, lime juice, and 2 tablespoons of grapefruit simple syrup. Use a funnel to divide the mixture between six 3-ounce popsicle molds. Insert popsicle sticks and freeze until solid.


  • If you can't find a ruby red grapefruit, you may use regular grapefruit juice in the simple syrup.
  • You will have some leftover grapefruit simple syrup that may be reserved for a different use (like iced tea or a cocktail or more popsicles!). It's just hard to make a batch of simple syrup that's less than 1/4 cup. I make the simple syrup in my tiniest pot, which is a stainless steel 5/8-quart butter warmer*. (*affiliate link)
  • As tempting as it is, don't increase the vodka in this recipe or your popsicles will remain slushy and never freeze solid.
  • This recipe yields 18 ounces of liquid to be divided between six 3-ounce popsicles. You can use a measuring cup filled with water to determine the capacity of one popsicle in your popsicle mold, then adjust this recipe accordingly.
