Poptails! Try a chilly cocktail on a stick

Margarita frozen pops can be made up to a week in advance to have on hand for unexpected guests or an after-work treat.
Margarita Frozen Pops

Notes: This recipe makes a classic strong margarita. If you want the “poptails” to be low-test instead of high-test, reduce the alcohol by half or double the other ingredients. If you want to make these pops without the alcohol at all, add the juice of 1 extra orange and an extra ¼ cup of filtered water. Pour into molds and freeze per the manufacturer’s instructions.
Because of the alcohol in these pops, they are a bit slower to freezer than traditional recipes. It’s best to make them the day before.
Start to finish: 5 minutes, plus overnight freezing
Servings: About 8 (depending on the size of your molds)


Ingredients:


½ cup fresh lime juice, about 5 to 6 large limes
Juice of 1 large orange (about ½ cup)
¼ cup filtered water
Pinch of fine-grain sea salt
¾ cup tequila
¼ cup triple sec
2 to 4 tablespoons powdered sugar (to taste)
Method:
In a pitcher, combine the lime juice, orange juice, water, salt, tequila and triple sec. Stir well. Add the powdered sugar, 1 tablespoon at a time and stirring well between additions. Taste to determine your desired sweetness, then continue stirring until the sugar is completely dissolved.
Fill the pop molds, stopping about ½ inch from the top. The liquid will expand to fill the sleeve as it freezes. Put the Popsicle handles in place and freeze overnight.
