Blood Orange Margarita Ice Pops Recipe

Blood Orange Margarita Ice Pops Recipe

Maryse Chevriere

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.
