A poptail is a cross between a popsicle and a cocktail. Our secret to making poptails even better is to dip them in prosecco between every bite!

This poptail is an homage to the traditional Aperol spritz, a cocktail widely consumed as an aperitif in many Italian cities. Our variation uses local ingredients, delightfully combining Canada’s cranberries and Aperol. Star anise also provides a delicious warmth to this festive and unique cocktail. You’ll love how elegant it looks and tastes!
