How Many Hard Freezer Pops Equal a Regular Alcoholic Drink?

Watch out, hard seltzers! There’s a new kid on the block. Its name—Hard Freezer Pops.  

Special occasions will never be the same again. SLIQ Spirited Ice alcohol ice pops are a convenient way to enjoy frozen cocktails. They’re an icy twist on booze that turns any time into a good time.

So, will you get buzzed off just a single popsicle cocktail? In this article, we’ll explain how many hard freezer pops equal one drink. 

What Is a Standard Alcoholic Drink? 

According to the NIAA, a “standard drink” in the U.S. refers to any drink that contains approximately 0.6 fluid ounces or 14 grams of pure alcohol. 

Naturally, different drinks have different levels of alcohol content. The alcohol concentration levels are expressed as alcohol by volume (ABV)  to make it clearer to the average consumer. So, although they all have different liquid volumes and concentrations, the following spirits are all equivalent to one standard alcoholic drink: 

12 fl oz of a light beer – Approximately 5% alcohol

8-9 fl oz of malt liquor – Approximately 7% alcohol 

5 fl oz of table wine – Approximately 12% alcohol 

3-4 fl oz fortified wine (sherry or port) – Approximately 17% alcohol

2-3 fl oz of liqueur, aperitif, or cordial – Approximately 24% alcohol

1.5 fl oz brandy or cognac – Approximately 40% alcohol

1.5 fl oz shot of 80 proof spirits – Approximately 40% alcohol

So, how much alcohol is in a boozy pop? 

With SLIQ, each 100 ml poptail has an 8% ABV. Due to its size, that makes it the rough equivalent to half of a standard alcoholic beverage. That means that two boozy pops equals one regular drink—give or take. 

Do All SLIQ Alcoholic Popsicles Have the Same ABV? 

Yes. SLIQ  alcohol freeze pops contain 8% ABV. That said, their calories, alcohol profile, and flavors vary:

Benefits of Hard Freezer Pops 

While there’s nothing wrong with your standard beer or mixed drink, normal drinks are just that—normal. You’ve been there, done that a million times. 

On the other hand, hard freezer pops are a refreshing frozen delight that play at the intersection of moderate indulgence and convenience. And with SLIQ, it gets even better: 

  • Grab and go – There’s no longer a need to find a recipe, gather your supplies, and mix a drink. With SLIQ hard freezer pops, you simply open up the freezer or cooler, snip off the tip of your boozy ice pop, squeeze, and enjoy a unique cocktail. There’s no prep, mess, or cleanup required when enjoying these alcoholic popsicles. Just make sure you bring enough with you in the cooler wherever you go. 
  • Premium ingredients – Our pops deliver premium taste thanks to our elevated ingredients. Made from high-end spirits like 100% Blue Agave, seven-times distilled Vodka, and Superior White Rum from the Caribbean, they’re artisanally crafted to match bartender-approved cocktails.
  • Sustainable – As a company, we pride ourselves on sustainability. We want to contribute to a better, healthier environment. That’s why we’ve partnered with TerraCycle® to create a sustainability program for our alcoholic popsicles. How it works is simple: 
    • You send in your empty SLIQ tubes for free. 
    • In exchange, TerraCycle will allow you to send rewards to the charity of your choice. 
    • After, those tubes will be processed and recycled into raw materials and later used to create other sustainable products. 
  • Instagram-worthy – SLIQs are a fun and differentiated way to bring the good times wherever you go. Unlike cans or bottles, their pop format stands out as you enjoy them almost anywhere. 
  • A phenomenal floater – Your SLIQ hard freezer pops can help you concoct the perfect mixer or be used as a floater in an existing cocktail. SLIQs’ uses are limited only by your creativity—in other words, there are boundless possibilities.
