Tasty Tuesday: Strawberry Margarita Popsicles
Posted by Girls Guide To on June 11, 2013 at 1:00 PM
It's H.O.T. outside. The last thing we want to do is turn on the oven, or spend any time whatsoever over a stove top. So, we're turning to our favorite cool-down treats like fresh salads, and chilled anything. One of our favorite childhood treats was the popsicle. This grown up version is simple and uses loads of fresh strawberries for a huge bite of flavor along with your favorite white tequila. Cheers!
Strawberry Margarita Ice Pops
Yield: 8 ice pops
Prep Time: 10 min
1¼ lbs. strawberries, hulled and halved
½ cup white tequila
½ cup superfine granulated sugar
1 Tablespoon fresh lime juice
Combine the strawberries, tequila, granulated sugar and lime juice in a blender and purée until smooth.
Strain the mixture through a fine mesh sieve into a large liquid measuring cup or bowl with a spout. You will have approximately three cups of liquid.
Pour the mixture into your popsicle molds being careful to fill the molds only three-fourths full (the mixture will expand when it freezes). Add the popsicle sticks, if necessary, and place the molds in the freezer for at least 24 hours.
To unmold the ice pops, run them under lukewarm water for 10 seconds then slide them from the molds.
