Cinco de Mayo will be here before you know it and so will summer! I am looking forward to Taco Tuesdays with margarita popsicles! Summer is my absolute favorite time of the year. I am Midwest girl. I live in Kansas City, Missouri.
We get the best and the worst of every season. When I say worst, I mean the cold winters! With the exception of the most recent winter, we had a few years of extremely mild winters. We had very little snow. The temperatures were so warm I recall running outdoors in January and February.
Our good luck came to an end this year and we were met with bitter temperatures. I am sooooooo ready to ditch my Northface coat for sundresses, sandals, and of course boozy popsicles.
I am not a huge fan of overly sweet drinks. I want to taste my alcohol, but I don’t usually want it straight, either. The taste has to be just right. I don’t typically add any sugar to my cocktails for this reason. That may sound strange to some people!
That is why I am thrilled I was able to come up my own margarita combination that I can make at home that tickles my taste buds. If you like sweet margaritas, add sugar!
If you prefer the salty kind, add salt! It is really that easy. I recommend adding the sugar or salt before you blend the ingredients. Taste the mixture after blending so that you can determine if you need more. Start small with a teaspoon. Work your way up from there.
When tequila freezes it becomes creamy. These popsicles will not have a hard texture once removed from the mold.
I recommend serving immediately and/or using wine glasses to hold them as they are consumed. They will melt similar to how a frozen margarita does.
These popsicles are so easy to make once you have the right mold. The mold above comes with a blue lid that you can place on top. I did not use the lid. I feared the lid would freeze on top. I didn’t want to have to resort to running hot water over the top to remove the lid and potentially ruining the popsicles.
I placed the mold without the lid on a flat surface in my freezer.
Frozen Strawberry Margarita Alcoholic Popsicles
- 1 cup tequila
- 1/2 cup orange juice
- 6 limes juice of
- sugar or salt (optional) Add sugar or salt and taste repeatedly. I did not use any sugar or salt, as preference.
- 10-15 sliced strawberries
- Combine the tequila, orange juice, and freshly squeezed juice from the limes in a blender.
- The mixture will become somewhat foamy. Pour the mixture into the popsicle mold. Do not fill the molds to the top. You will need room for the fruit.
- Add the strawberry slices to the mold with the liquid. You may have to use a knife or popsicle stick to press the fruit down into the mold.
- If you still have room at the top of the popsicle add in more of the mixture. If you have run out of margarita mixture, top off the molds with juice or tequila.
- Freeze for two hours.
- Remove the mold from the freezer and add the popsicle sticks to each. The mixture should be slushy.
- Freeze for an additional 6-8 hours. I did overnight.
- Remove the mold from the freezer and run hot water on the side of each individual mold for ten seconds. This will loosen the popsicles.
- Remove the popsicles and serve immediately.
