To make good on my goal to try different flavor combinations of popsicles this summer, I tried my hand at a boozy version, and came up with these Watermelon Margarita Popsicles. This was the week when I bought a whole watermelon and had to think of things to do with it—check out this Watermelon Granita recipe for an alternate watermelon dessert. I love that the blueberries look like watermelon seeds, but you don’t need to worry about spitting them out! Easier to eat than seeded watermelon, but still have that charm.
These margarita pops are perfect to enjoy on your porch or balcony after a long day at work. Nothing else needed.
Watermelon Margarita Popsicles
Prep Time: 10 minutes
Cook Time: 6 hours
Total Time: 6 hours, 10 minutes
Yield: 6 Servings
- 3 1/2 cups chopped seedless watermelon, about 1/2 a large watermelon
- 2 tablespoons lime juice
- 1/3 cup white tequila
- 1/2 cup fresh blueberries
- Puree the watermelon chunks in a blender until smooth, then add the lime juice and tequila and give it one more spin.
- Place 1/2 of the blueberries in the bottom of the popsicles molds, then pour the watermelon mixture in. Top with the remaining blueberries and insert the sticks.
- Freeze for about 6 hours.
- To remove popsicles from mold, submerge in warm water up to the line of the popsicles, and gently pull on popsicle stick. Serve immediately, or place extra popsicles into a freezer gallon bag for future storage. Store for up to a month (but they probably won’t last that long! 🙂 )
