About the Author

Erin Nichols, a blogger since 1998 (way back before it was even called blogging), has documented hundreds of recipes both delicious and disastrous. She relocated from New England to San Francisco, and has no idea what to do with her closet full of winter coats now that it doesn’t snow for six months out of the year. You can follow Erin’s continued cooking adventures online at erincooks.com.

Even though I hate cooking (and I am a kitchen disaster), I've followed Nichols' blog (erincooks.com) since its inception. Nichols is a talented cook, a gifted writer, and manages to infuse her humor into both. There was no question that I would buy this book. Much like Nichols' blog, Poptails is incredibly approachable. I appreciated the information in the introduction, which outlines some of the basics for making these popsicles. It was also nice that Nichols used this opportunity to discuss her process for inventing these. The book is fun and filled with amazing options for a variety of occasions. Plus, it's an excuse to stock all kinds of fun booze. I love it!

I was so excited to see this book yet so disappointed. There are ways to get alcohol to freeze depressing on mixers and ratio etc. I assumed the author had these down. Nope. She tells you to boil your liquor for 5 minutes. Reduce from 1 cup to 3/4 cup for all the recipes. Yes they freeze because there is no alcohol left! You could give these to your kids. You egg up with a cocktail without the buzz. BORING

I was looking for a little something to spice up my summer parties. I'm sure my guests are getting tired of my same-old sangria. I came across this book, and what a fabulous idea! We have been enjoying everything from appletini's to dirty martini's on a stick. These are also a great option for my guests that do not usually want to drink very much as the liquor is cooked off a little bit to allow it to freeze. However, wine does freeze. Excellent!

This is a great little cookbook to have on hand the next time you are planning a party. The author starts off with a detailed, step by step description of how to prepare the alcohol you will need to use in these recipes. It is VERY simple, you just have to burn off some of the actual alcohol so the final product will freeze. She gives you a nice guideline of how much alcohol to start with for each recipe. You WILL need to do some prep work for these creations so plan ahead!

The author's short introduction to each recipe is both informative and light hearted. The recipes themselves are creative, vividly described and beautifully photographed with step by step directions. There are a ton of `fruity' type poptails like Cosmopolitans, Margaritas, Sangria and many others. There are also non fruit based drinks like Baby It's Cold Outside which includes vanilla vodka, hot cocoa, and cinnamon that sounds divine for a winter party! I am looking forward to trying that one! The spiked eggnog poptail is another one on my winter treat list!

This is really a cute reference to have on hand if you are looking for a festive and creative desert to feed your guests!

Poptails is a great little recipe reference for mixing up the perfect summer treats for a backyard party. Erin's cleverly written introductions to each popsicle demonstrate why her blog, ErinCooks.com, is so popular. She makes each frozen treat sound so enticing you will struggle to choose which one to try first! I can't wait to serve up the Pretty Pink Margarita and the Wicked Watermelon pops at my next party, and look forward to the crisp New England fall where I can try the Pumpkin Patch.

The author does a great job sharing her process- successes and failures- in a witty and charming voice. I've never had so much fun simply *reading* a recipe book, let alone creating from one!

I haven't used this book very much but I bought it for ideas for parties, particularly in the summertime. I made the sangria popsicles and they were a huge hit! My aunt wanted more fruit... but my friends wanted more booze :) If there are kids around, be prepared to shoo them away! The popsicles look delicious and taste even better to us adults.
