Summer just got a whole lot better with these rum and coke popsicles! They are also known as Dirty Pirate Popsicles that is named after the famous Dirty Pirate drink. We love how easy these are to make! These boozy popsicles are made with rum, Coke, and Kahlua and they’re absolutely delicious!

Rum and Coke Popsicles

We have a ton of awesome Summer Cocktails that we hope you check out. I am excited to try other frozen cocktail recipes. The great thing about this one is that it’s only just a few ingredients!

Ingredients You Will Need:

(full amounts in recipe box below)

Captain Morgan

Have you ever had a Dirty Pirate? It’s a cocktail that’s made with Coca-Cola, Kahlua, and Rum. It’s a twist on the popular rum and Coke, and the Kahlua gives it an awesome flavor. You can always use any type of rum, but we like to make this with Captain Morgan…

You will also want to make sure your Coke is flat. Unscrew the cap the night before and let it sit to get all of the carbonation out.

Coca Cola

Can I change the ingredients?

  • Use coconut rum instead of spiced rum
  • You can leave the Kahlua out
  • Use Jack Daniel’s instead of Rum

I assume you mean 1/4 CUP of Captain Morgan – or do you want me to pour 1/4 of the bottle in the mix?

It says 1/4 cup of rum.

Can we use Diet Coke?

i did not see anything about diet coke……. the only reason for letting it sit overnight. is not to make it diet…. it is to have NO carbonation…… it will still have SUGAR.

Ginnu, I’m sure Laura understands that leaving it open removes carbonation and not sugar. Most people would realize that’s how it works. She was only offering up the suggestion of making the pops with a sugar-free substitute. Perhaps she’s diabetic and still wants to try the recipe.

Ginnu, Laura was asking about if she can use diet coke as a substitution to regular coke.

Sounds good will have to try it!

Can you make these in popsicle bags?

Hi Jill~
They look delicious!!! I thought alcohol doesn’t freeze, I’m surprised this works?!5 stars

It will freeze when mixed with something else, like come or water etc.

It will when mixed with another liquid such as come or water etc.

Love all the summer recipes”

If we leave out the Kahlua, do we increase the rum to have the same booze to sofa ratio?

How does the alcohol freeze?

Anxious to try this. I’m using root beer per someone else’s suggestion. Im hoping that goes well with Kahlua. Rum goes well with everything.5 stars

If done in a larger quantity, could it be done as a slush?

I’ll have to try these! Thanks for the recipe! Could you come up with a simple margarita popsicle recipe? 


My sister and I are going on a vacation, we will be taking this recipe along with us. She likes Malibu Rum, so we will be swapping out Capt. Morgan. Do we still use the Kahlua or omit it ?

Sooo going to give coconut rum and pineapple juice a try too for some variety. Thank you for the recipe.

From an old Sailer……thank you, thank you. My rum would be BUMBU…………..only when i can afford it, great rum none the lest.

This is one I have to try. Especially since I am a rum and coke drinker.

Love it gonna make fir sure love the captain….

Yummy, excellent receipt5 stars

Gonna try w diet and no Kahula. Will report back
