Marvelous Margarita Popsicles

April 24, 2014

Margarita popsicles are a fun way to serve this must-have Cinco de Mayo cocktail.  These popsicles are lime flavored but feel free to use your favorite margarita.  Mango and strawberry margarita pops would also be delicious.

Sauza-rita Popsicle
Makes 12 popsicles.

2 parts Sauza® Blue Silver 100% Agave Tequila
2 parts DeKuyper® 03 Premium Orange Liquer
8 parts fresh squeezed lime juice (8-12 small limes, usually)
4 parts sugar
8 parts water
12 3-oz disposable paper cups
12 wooden popsicle sticks or spoons

Heat water and sugar in a small sauce pan until completely dissolved and the water is clear. Let cool. Pour into a pitcher with lime juice, tequila, and orange liqueur. Pour 5 tbsp of margarita into each cup. Place cups into a baking dish and put the dish in the freezer. After about 2 hours, start checking the popsicles. Once they're frozen enough to support the wooden stick, insert a stick into each popsicle, pushing ¾ of the way into the popsicle. Let freeze several more hours or until completely frozen (or freeze overnight). To serve, peel the paper cup away from the popsicle, starting at the seam of the cup, and carefully remove the bottom.
