Blood Orange Margarita Ice Pops Recipe

On a hot summer day, ice pops are nice — alcoholic ice pops are better. Just be warned: they melt quickly.

Ingredients

  • 2 cups blood orange soda or juice
  • Juice of 3 limes (about a ¼ cup)
  • 3 ounces of tequila, preferably Don Julio Reposado
  • 1 ounce orange liqueur
  • 1 tablespoon sugar
  • 1 teaspoon salt

Directions

Mix all of the ingredients together in a large bowl until the sugar and salt have completely dissolved. Ladle the mixture into ice pop molds (extra-large silicon ice cube trays or Dixie cups work as well), leaving an extra ½-inch space at the top, and place in the freezer. 

After about 2 hours, once the liquid has started to solidify, stick in the ice pop sticks. Keep in the freezer overnight.

Blood Orange Shopping Tip

Buying fruits in season when they are at the peak of their freshness make for great tasting food and can save you money.

Blood Orange Cooking Tip

Don’t throw out your overripe fruit – instead blend into a smoothie or salad dressing, add to muffin batter, bake into a cobbler, or boil down with sugar and a little lemon juice to make jam.
