Margarita Popsicles Ingredients

Margarita Popsicles raw ingredients that are labeled

You’ll need:

  • ½ cup fresh-squeezed lime juice (about 4 limes)
  • 1 cup orange juice (pulp-free)
  • ½ cup white tequila
  • 3 tablespoons simple syrup
  • 3-4 additional limes, sliced into rounds
  • 8 (3-ounce) Dixie cups or similar 
  • 8 popsicle sticks
  • Coarse salt

PRO TIP:

Use plastic-lined paper cups to easily remove the popsicle once it’s frozen.

SUBSTITUTIONS AND ADDITIONS

SIMPLE SYRUP: I like to keep a bottle of simple syrup stocked in my pantry. You can find this at all liquor, or grocery, stores. It is great to keep on hand for all types of cocktails. You can make your own by combining equal parts (½ cup each) of granulated sugar and water. You will heat it in a small saucepan on medium heat, just until the sugar dissolves. You do not want to boil the simple syrup. Allow it to cool, then store it in the refrigerator in a lidded jar, for up to two weeks.

How to Make This Margarita Popsicles Recipe

OUR RECIPE DEVELOPER SAYS

Double or triple this alcoholic margarita popsicles recipe to make a big batch of these treats to serve at your summer parties.

STEP ONE: In a 4-cup measuring cup with a spout, combine fresh lime juice, orange juice, tequila, and simple syrup. Stir to combine. Taste and adjust sweetness as needed.

PRO TIP:

Roll limes on the countertop under your palm before juicing to make them easier to juice.

STEP TWO: Pour the margarita liquid into the little cups, leaving about ¼-inch space at the top of the cup.

STEP THREE: Slice limes into rounds. You can get about 3 large rounds from each lime and you want them to be large enough in diameter to fill most of the top of the cup.

STEP FOUR: Cut a tiny slice in the center of each lime round and insert a popsicle stick.

STEP FIVE: Place the popsicle stick and lime into each cup, adjusting the position of the lime slice on the wooden stick so that it rests at the top of the margarita liquid and the popsicle stick stands upright.

STEP SIX: Freeze for 8 hours or overnight.

STEP SEVEN: Loosen the popsicle from the cup by warming the outside of the cup with your hand. This should only take a few seconds. Then gently pull the frozen popsicle free. Sprinkle the top of the lime with salt and/or dip the bottom of the popsicle into a little bowl of salt.

How To Serve

These alcoholic popsicles are the perfect way to cool down all summer long. Serve with our fruit salsa with cinnamon chips or our pineapple salsa to add a little freshness while snacking.

Storage

IN THE FREEZER: Keep extra boozy popsicles in the freezer for up to 1 week or up to 1 month if stored in an airtight container.

These tequila lime margarita popsicles are insanely delicious and make a great summer treat. The hardest part about making this citrusy ice pops recipe is the time it takes to let them hang out in the freezer until frozen.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

Could I use popsicle molds instead of Dixie cups for this recipe?

These boozy margarita popsicles would be just as delicious made in popsicle molds as in Dixie cups. Ideally, if you are able to use round molds so that you can still add the lime round, that would be a great option.

How long will these ice pops last in the freezer?

This cool treat will keep in the freezer for up to one month as long as you seal them in an airtight container or Ziploc bag.

Does tequila actually freeze in these popsicles?

Because the tequila is mixed with both orange juice and lime juice, it will freeze in this margarita popsicle recipe.
