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.
- 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
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.
