For Cinco de Mayo this Saturday, I’m making these margarita ice pops. Margaritas are my favorite drink and they remind me of Mexican vacations. These ice pops are the perfect treat and taste like little icy morsels of margaritas. I didn’t have a fancy popsicle maker so I used the ice tray that was in my freezer. I made them skinny margaritas because I didn’t use a margarita mix just tequila, lime juice, agave nectar and a little salt. There’s a lot to celebrate in life so why not with boozy ice pops? Cheers to living in the moment and being happy with all that life has to offer! ¡Salud!
Makes 16 pops
- 1/4 cup tequila (I used Patron)
- 1/4 cup agave nectar (you can use sugar)
- 1 cup water
- 2 limes
- Kosher salt
- Pop sticks
- Ice tray
First, you need to make the simple syrup. Mix 1/4 cup of agave nectar and 1/4 cup water and boil until the syrup is combined. Let the syrup cool. Second, mix 1/4 cup tequila, the simple syrup (which should be 1/2 cup), the juice of 1/2 lime, 1/2 cup water, and 1 teaspoon kosher salt.
