Margarita Frozen Pops

POSTED: July 18, 2012 1:30 a.m.

1/2 cup fresh lime juice, about 5 to 6 large limes

Juice of 1 large orange (about 1/2 cup)

1/4 cup filtered water

Pinch of fine-grain sea salt

3/4 cup tequila

1/4 cup triple sec

2 to 4 tablespoons powdered sugar (to taste)

In a pitcher, combine the lime juice, orange juice, water, salt, tequila and triple sec. Stir well.

Add the powdered sugar, 1 tablespoon at a time and stirring well between additions. Taste to determine your desired sweetness, then continue stirring until the sugar is completely dissolved.

Fill the pop molds, stopping about 1/2 inch from the top. The liquid will expand to fill the sleeve as it freezes. Put the Popsicle handles in place and freeze overnight.

Note- This recipe makes a classic strong margarita. If you want the "poptails" to be low-test instead of high-test, reduce the alcohol by half or double the other ingredients. If you want to make these pops without the alcohol at all, add the juice of 1 extra orange and an extra 1/4 cup of filtered water. Pour into molds and freeze per the manufacturer’s instructions.

Recipe from Associated Press.
