There's nothing more refreshing on a hot summer day than a fruity margarita--except maybe Layered Margarita Popsicles! These even-more-refreshing cocktail popsicles are the perfect way to enjoy the summer sun. My homemade ice pops combine three flavors: strawberry, peach, and lime. They're perfect for Cinco de Mayo!

Ingredients

For the Strawberry Section:

  • 4 strawberries blended in a food processor to create very small pieces
  • 1 cup strawberry juice blend Recommended: Naked brand Berry Blast
  • 1 tablespoon tequila recommended: Camarena Tequila
  • 1 tablespoon agave nectar
  • 1/2 tablespoon fresh lime juice

For the White Peach Section:

  • 1 white peach blended in a food processor to create very small pieces
  • 1 cup lemon-lime soda such as Diet Sierra Mist
  • 1 tablespoon tequila Recommended: Camarena Tequila
  • 1 tablespoon agave nectar
  • 1/2 tablespoon fresh lime juice

For the Lime Section:

  • 3 tablespoons limeade concentrate frozen
  • 1 cup water
  • 1/2 tablespoon agave nectar
  • 1 tablespoon tequila Recommended: Camarena Tequila

Instructions

  • Combine the ingredients for each section in 3 separate cups or containers.
  • Spoon 1/6 of strawberries into each popsicle mold. Pour 1/6 of strawberry margarita mixture into each popsicle mold, pouring to about 1/3 of the way up the popsicle mold Allow this section to freeze for at least 2 hours before proceeding to next section
  • After the strawberry section has been in the freezer for at least 2 hours, spoon 1/6 of the fresh peaches into each mold. Pour 1/6 of the peach margarita mixture into each mold, this time the molds will be filled about 2/3 of the way up. Allow this section to freeze for at least 2 hours before proceeding to the final section.
  • After the peach section has been in the freezer for at least 2 hours, top with lime margarita mixture. If desired, cut small lime pieces to place at the top of each popsicle. Freeze for at least 2 hours or until completely frozen through. Enjoy!

Notes

  • An ice pop mold is the easiest and least expensive way to make popsicles. Molds typically make between six and eight three-ounce ice pops. Some include the sticks, which is very convenient.
  • Give yourself extra time if you want to create layered ice pops. For a well-defined line between flavors, each layer needs to set completely before adding the next layer. If you want softer lines, add the second layer when the first is only partially frozen. Keep the ingredients chilled in between layers for a faster freeze.
  • Submerge the mold halfway in lukewarm water for about 30 seconds to release the frozen pops.
  • Stick to one teaspoon of tequila per popsicle layer. If you use more than a teaspoon of booze per pop, they simply won't freeze. The stick will slide right out and you'll have to dig all that good stuff out with a spoon.
