I am really excited about trying this week’s drink!! I want to make them for my 4th of July festivities. What a better way for a Mexican to celebrate 4th of July, right? =) These are perfect for the hot Texas summer and look amazingly refreshing!
CREAMY MARGARITA POPSICLES
1¼ cup fresh lime juice (about 8 limes), plus 4 limes for stabilizing the popsicle sticks
1 (14oz) can of sweetened condensed milk
1 cup water
¼ cup tequila
2 tablespoons orange juice (optional)
Kosher salt or margarita salt
You will also need:
12 (3oz) Dixie cups
Small popsicle sticks or craft spoons
A pitcher or large cocktail shaker
- In a pitcher or large cocktail shaker, combine the lime juice, sweetened condensed milk, water, tequila, and orange juice. It is important to combine the ingredients in a container that has a spout because it will make it much easier to pour the mix into cups.
- Line out the Dixie cups on a baking sheet, so it will be easy to transport them to the freezer. Fill each Dixie cup 90% of the way with the tequila mixture.
- Slice the limes into ¼ inch thick rounds. Push a craft spoon through the center of each lime round, so that half of the stick pokes out from each side. Top the mixture with the lime sticks. Make sure the lime is resting directly on top of the tequila mixture.
- Freeze for at least 6 hours, or overnight. When ready to remove the popsicles from the Dixie cups, simply snip a small cut in the rim of each cup and peel them away from the popsicle. Place the popsicles onto a dish with crushed ice to keep them from melting too quickly, Sprinkle the tops generously with kosher salt, and serve.

I will let you all know how my version turns out when I make it this weekend!
P.s. Drink responsibly. Don’t drink and drive. =)
Stay in love,
