This helpful Instructable will show you how to use the power of liquid nitrogen to freeze alcohol and make your delicious cocktail Popsicles -- or cocksicles, though I don't know if I'd call them that while putting one in my mouth.

While it is impossible to freeze alcohol in a traditional freezer, liquid nitrogen is cold enough to make a boozy pop nice and firm. I got this idea from my Grandpa, who, back in his engineering days in the 50's, would enjoy a "bourbon-sicle" in the lab with his coworkers. They simply filled a dixie cup with bourbon, put a stick in it, and submerged the entire thing in liquid nitrogen.
