Beat the Heat with a Margarita Popsicle Recipe
We just had a smack yourself in the forehead moment over here. It's been mind-numbingly, temper-scorchingly hot here in the Northeast, and all we've been doing to combat it is dropping ice cubes in our jockey shorts and complaining intensely. Not our best plan, so how about we whip up a batch of these alcoholic popsicles instead? At least our undies will stay moderately dryer.
Note: The best part of the recipe is where it says you should leave out the tequila if you're making these for kids. Thanks for the tip, guys - for a second there we were going to double the hooch for the tykes. Read on for the recipe.
1/2 cup sugar
1 cup fresh limejuice
1/2 cup water
2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
2 tablespoons fresh orange juice
2 tablespoons tequila
2 tablespoons Grand Marnier
1 tablespoon lime zest
Note: Omit the tequila and Grand Marnier for kid's popsicles.
Combine sugar, through orange juice in a small saucepan over medium heat. Cook, until sugar dissolves. Remove from heat and allow to cool. Add tequila, orange liqueur, and lime zest, mix to combine. Pour molds and cover with foil. Place the popsicle stick in center and freeze until hard, preferably overnight.
