Summertime is here and is going by fast already, so what would be most convenient for the average hardworking American that has no time to serve themselves a drink on a hot summer day? Two words: Alcoholic Popsicles!

America’s finest booze innovators have begun to sell ice pops filled with wine, spirits and a ton of fruit flavors. It’s a summary, adults-only treat that’s poised for a huge surge in popularity. And who better to give these a test drive than some of the busiest people in America, moms?

We gathered up a roundtable of moms from Denver, Colorado, and its suburbs to taste a slew of alcoholic ice pops.

We’ll start from the top, shall we?

7: Claffey’s Frozen Cocktails Pink Lemonade
