Be honest, how many of you remember Otter Pops from childhood and secretly wish it was socially acceptable to eat them as an adult? I am over here raising my hand! Though, I am not sure I actually miss the cloying syrup flavors as much as the novelty of eating an ice pop out of a tube rather than on a stick. Why is that so satisfying? Hmmm. Definitely something to think about! While you’re thinking about it, you should make these adult watermelon margarita ice pops!
I was so stinking excited when I found these ice pop bags on Amazon. Naturally instead of doing a “family friendly” ice pop (i.e. one that doesn’t contain alcohol), I went for frozen margarita! I don’t have kids yet, so my freezer can be full of these things and I don’t have to worry! If you do have kids, just hide these bad boys in the back so those little hands don’t mistake them for one of their own!
If you love a good watermelon margarita, you’re going to love this super fun frozen version! I used fresh watermelon, lime juice, and lime zest, with just a touch of agave. This is the perfect blended frozen treat to enjoy with friends on a hot evening. It’s one of the last remaining Friday’s of Summer people, so get a move on, and enjoy every minute!
Watermelon Margarita Ice PopsPrint Recipe
- 5 cups fresh watermelon chunks
- 1 Tbsp lime zest
- juice of 2 limes, approximately 1/4 cup
- 2 Tbsp agave
- 1/2 cup tequila
In a blender or food processor, blend together the watermelon, lime zest, lime juice, agave, and tequila until smooth.
Using a fine mesh strainer, strain the liquid into a measuring cup to remove any remaining pulp
Using a funnel, fill each zip-top bag until the fill line.
Freeze upright for 3-4 hours or until firm.
Because of the alcohol content, the pops will never freeze completely solid.
