Elizabeth Karmel loves a good margarita, and the colder the margarita, the better. She came up with this ingenious recipe, which can definitely be adapted to incorporate different cocktail flavors.
Ingredients (for about 8 pops)
½ c fresh lime juice (about 5 to 6 large limes)
Juice of 1 large orange (about ½ cup)
¼ c filtered water
¾ c tequila
¼ c triple sec
Pinch of fine-grain sea salt
2 – 4 tbsp powdered sugar (to taste)
In a pitcher, combine all liquid ingredients and the salt. Stir well, then add the powdered sugar (1 tablespoon at a time), 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 a half-inch from the top. The liquid will expand to fill the sleeve as it freezes. Put the popsicle handles in place and freeze overnight.
Thank you again to Elizabeth Karmel for the recipe, and the Associated Press for the mouth watering picture. If you want to, read the original article and enjoy!
