Watermelon Margarita Pops

Ingredients

  • 1 tsp. lime zest
  • ½ cup lime juice
  • 4 cups chopped seedless watermelon
  • ¾ cup tequila (we used Jose Cuervo silver tequila)
  • ½ cup sugar

Directions

  1. Add the lime juice and chopped watermelon to a blender, processing until smooth. Take a fine wire-mesh strainer and place it over a large measuring cups (we used a large bowl instead of a measuring cup). Pour the watermelon mixture through the strainer, discarding any leftover solids. Pour the mixture into 12* (3-oz.) paper cups. Cover each cup with a small piece of aluminum foil. Make a small cut in the center of the foil and insert a pop stick into each cup. Place the cups in the freezer for 8 hours or until firm.

*Depending on how well your blender can process, you may end up with enough mixture to fill more than 12 cups. For us, we had enough for 19 cups.

If you’re someone who wants to be able to actually taste alcohol when you have a drink, you’ll love these pops ! You do taste the alcohol but the watermelon still comes through as well. Don’t know if eating these will get you drunk per se, but they are delicious !

We got this recipe from Southern Living.

We weren’t paid in any form to promote Jose Cuervo or Southern Living.

Take care everybody !
