I ordered ice pop molds for these Watermelon Margarita Popsicles, and the world hasn’t been the same since….
I traveled to Mexico this summer with my hubby and child. While we were there my man collected a whole lot of Tequila, and a whole lot of Cuban Cigars. (I also sneaked a bit of Mexican Vanilla in the shopping bag too.) I was able to use some of this delicious Tequila in this cold summer treat.
The ice pops were so easy and quick to make. Just as I have complained in other recipe posts, the hardest part is cutting the watermelon. After you have completed this daunting task, you pretty much throw everything in the blender, blend the ingredients, strain the ingredients, then assembly your popsicles. This preparation should not take long at all… And you can get back to enjoying your summer.
Taste wise, I think this popsicle has a nice balance of sweetness, tequila, and watermelon. I ate about 3 in one sitting. I hope to have these sweet cold summer treats with a few friends soon….
If you have a large watermelon, and you don’t want to make a large amount of freeze pops, here is a tip for the leftover watermelon. When adding your ingredients to the blender, omit the alcohol. After straining the pulp away from the juice, place the juice in ice cube trays. These watermelon ice cubes can be used to make smoothies, frozen margaritas, kid friendly freeze pops, etc.
I have made these popsicles a few times, with two types of results. When I put everything in the blender to mix, after it freezes, the alcohol tends to separate from the fruit juice. Which results in half of the popsicle appearing clear/light in color. Sometimes if I use leftover juice I freeze for later, the popsicles look like these….
