Creamy Margarita Popsicles

margpops22I saw this recipe on Pinterest the other night and just had to try it. I did a taste test or three for you and these are so good. Sure, making a margarita drink is much faster but these are worth the wait.

You could also put the mixture in a sealed container and freeze, then scoop out for a margarita ice cream treat. I was going to set aside a few pops for the little hummingbird before I added the tequila since she always wants whatever I eat, but I forgot. So, I just used apple juice for her popsicles with the additional lime.

It’s probably for the best anyway. We don’t want any mix ups and have drunk hummingbirds. You don’t need a long winded intro so let’s get to the good stuff!

Enjoy!

Ingredients:
  • 1 1/4 cup lime juice*; plus 4 limes for the popsicle sticks
  • 1 (14oz) can of sweetened condensed milk
  • 1 cup water
  • 1/3 cup tequila
  • 2 tablespoons orange juice
  • Kosher salt
You will also need:
  • 12 (3oz) Dixie cups
  • Small popsicle sticks
  • A pitcher with a spout
Directions:
  • In a pitcher, combine the lime juice, sweetened condensed milk, water, tequila, and orange juice.  Line out the Dixie cups on a baking sheet, so it will be easy to transport them to the freezer. Fill each Dixie cup 90% of the way with the tequila mixture.
  • Slice the limes into ¼ inch thick rounds. Push a popsicle stick through the center of each lime round, so that half of the stick pokes out from each side. Top the mixture with the lime sticks. Make sure the lime is resting directly on top of the tequila mixture.
  • Freeze overnight. When ready to remove the popsicles from the Dixie cups, simply run the cup under warm water for a few seconds or set on the kitchen counter for a minute or two. Sprinkle the tops with kosher salt and serve.

*You could use fresh limes but I just used it from the bottle. Homie don’t have time for squeezin’ limes.
