Ever since the masses first discovered the homemade popsicles of Steven Carse, aka the King of Pops, summer in Atlanta might as well be known as popsicle season. Chocolate sea salt, coconut lemongrass, raspberry lime and grapefruit mint are among the staples; then there’s the limited availability blackberry cream, bananas foster, pear vanilla and tangerine basil (among others). Atlantans young and old flock to Carse and his cohorts at stands and festivals around the city anxious to snag their favorite flavors. Now, Carse has teamed up with Corner Tavern to offer something a little more potent: cocktail-infused popsicles aptly dubbed "poptails."
Available at all four Corner Tavern locations starting Friday, these alcoholic frozen treats will sell for $5 each, to those age 21 and older, of course.
Loaded Arnold Palmer – As Southern as it gets with vodka, sweet tea and lemonade
Strawberry Margarita – Tequila and strawberries, minus the salted rim
The Bourbon Cowboy – Like the same-name Corner Tavern drink with bourbon and orange juice but frozen and served on a stick
