Lollipops for Grown Ups

Think lollipops are just for kids?  Think again!  I wanted to try making a more sophisticated sucker and succeeded with these cocktail flavored lollipops.  I say, “flavored’ because they don’t actually contain any alcohol, but they are inspired by popular happy hour libations.  Champagne flavoring combined with Lemon Oil & lemon zest equals a Champagne Cocktail lollipop; Lime Oil combined with a touch of Peppermint Oil and lime zest equals a Mojito; you get the idea.

These lollipops are fun treats for a bridal shower, adult birthday, or even to hand out as novelty thank-you gifts after an event.  They would make cute stir sticks as well.
