On hot summer days, there’s nothing quite like enjoying an icy drink while the sun beats down. For me, the most refreshing summer drink is a frozen margarita. Imagine, though, a recipe that’s even better than the average frozen marg. Hello, margarita popsicles!
How to Make Margarita Popsicles
This recipe is from TikTok’s favorite grandma, Babs Costello aka @brunchwithbabs. I’ll be making her margarita pops for all kinds of summer events. I’m talking barbecues, hangouts, birthdays and more!
BABS MARGARITA POPS ????recipe follows????I know what I’m making for the 4th of July! Babs Margarita Pops are the hit of every summer party because they are so yummy and refreshing. What more could you ask for? ????INGREDIENTS: 4 oz white tequila 2 oz Cointreau 2 tbsp agave 2 oz lime juice 2 cup limeade 4 cups ice Limes 5 oz paper Dixie cups ????INSTRUCTIONS: In a blender mix white tequila, Cointreau, agave, lime juice, limeade and ice. Blend until smooth and then pour into paper dixie cups. Cut limes into round slices and cut a slit in each lime. Insert a popsicle stick into each lime. Place popsicle sticks in cups overnight to freeze. Remove paper cups. Optional: Rim pops in salt and serve (I like to serve right in the cups to catch all the yummy drips). Makes 16 pops. #4thofjuly #margaritas
Step 1: Blend the ingredients
Throw that tequila, Cointreau, agave, lime juice, limeade and ice into your blender. Then, as Babs says, let it rip! Mix all of the ingredients together on your blender’s “ice crush” setting. Continue to blend until the consistency is smooth.
If you’re more of a mocktail fan, Babs has a tip to make these pops alcohol-free. “Just add a splash of orange juice,” she says, and it will still be delicious.
Step 2: Pour the frozen margaritas into cups
In the paper Dixie cups, pour your margarita mix “almost to the top but not quite,” as Babs says. The recipe can make up to 16 pops.
Step 3: Add limes and popsicle sticks
Cut up your limes into slices. Skewer a slice on each popsicle stick. Place those individually into each Dixie cup.
Step 4: Freeze overnight
You can now stick your pops into the freezer to freeze overnight. Get ready for that frozen margarita pop magic!
Step 5: Salt the ‘rims’
It’s a margarita pop, so once these popsicles are frozen, you pop ’em right out.
In true margarita fashion, you’ll want to salt the rim. Add some salt to a plate and procede to coat the top of your frozen pops with salt. Bam, they’re ready to serve! You’re all set for some frozen margarita popsicle goodness.
