Raise your hand if you like popsicles…. okay now raise your hand if you like tequila!! If you raised your hand twice keep on reading. Remember I’ve been having summer vibes this week, first with my coconut lime body scrub, and now this. So what better time to blog about these amazing strawberry margarita popsicles?
Drinking margaritas is a blast, but there is something just so fun and satisfying about knowing that I have a frozen margarita popsicle treat waiting for me in the freezer. You know how I love to stock my freezer, and this way we can grab one when we’re hot and sweaty at a moment’s notice. Sorry kids step aside… these popsicles are for grown ups.
When it comes to popsicle molds we’ve gone through a zillion it seems. I don’t like keeping up with all those plastic end pieces, and it never fails we always lose a couple, it’s so frustrating. I’m in love with this new popsicle mold I found from Amazon. It makes perfect professional looking popsicles, with actual wooden sticks, plus there are only 2 pieces to keep up with! Even better this kit comes with its own popsicle sticks, so once it arrives you’re ready to go make popsicles.
I will give you a little warming. Stick to the amount of alcohol in this recipe. I’m from Texas so this girl can handle a strong margarita no problem, but if you add more than the recommended amount of alcohol in this recipe the popsicles will be a little on the slushy side…. and we don’t want that. You’ll still get a nice margarita tequila flavor with this recipe but it won’t be overly harsh tasting.
Strawberry Margarita Popsicles
- 1 cup freshly squeezed lime juice (6-8 large limes)
- 1/2 cup water
- 1/2 cup triple sec
- 1/4 cup white tequila
- 1 pint strawberries, washed and quartered (about 2 1/2 cups)
- Margarita salt for garnish if desired
- In a blender add lime juice, water, triple sec, and tequila. Add sugar and blend well until it’s completely dissolved. Add the strawberries and blend until just pureed.
- Pour the mixture into the popsicle mold, add plastic or wooden sticks, and freeze for at least 6 hours or overnight.
To remove the popsicles run a little cold water over the mold, gently squeeze the ends to loosen, and slowly pull them out. Sprinkle with a little margarita salt if you desire and let the party start! I can’t wait to make more popsicles with this awesome mold, ones my kids can actually eat too… haha!
