True or false: You'll be spending Labor Day by the pool.

Either way, chill out with these adult popsicles created by celebrity mixologist Rob Floyd, who uses Basil Hayden's whiskey because its low 80 proof allows the alcohol to freeze when mixed with other liquids. Cool!

Berry American Popsicle

Makes 6 popsicles
• 7 parts bourbon
• 1½ parts elderflower syrup
• 2 parts water
• 2 parts fresh lime juice
• 4 to 5 strawberries, medium size
• 12 blueberrie

1. Poke a hole in each blueberry, and soak in four parts of bourbon for 30 minutes. Set aside.
2. Add the strawberries to a cocktail shaker and muddle. Add the fresh lime juice, elderflower syrup, remaining bourbon and water to the cocktail shaker. Shake hard.
3. Add the mixture to the popsicle molds. Add three bourbon-soaked blueberries to each mold and freeze.
