Watermelon Tequila Pops

  • Watermelon Tequila Pops | the little epicurean

    Summa summa summertime!

    I normally associate summer with lazy pool weekends, afternoon naps and relaxing with a fun read. This summer has been far from that. July has been on crazy/hectic/unbelievable month. Now that my Florida and Hawaii trips are over, I feel like everything is happening way too fast. I need time to slow down pronto. I’m going to need a lot more of these watermelon tequila pops and a whole bunch of friends to come over and help me eat them.

    Come on over! I still have some cantaloupe rum pops stashed in the freezer as well as the kiwi coconut vodka pops I’m sharing later this week.

    Ice Pop Bags | the little epicurean

    I’ve been getting a lot of questions about the bags I used for these ice pops. Here they are! My mom bought them from the Philippines. The come 100 to a pack. Each ice candy bag is 1 1/2 x 10 inches.

    I found a similar one here on Amazon. If you don’t want to tie the ends, you can get fancy and use this super cool magic sealer.

    I have A LOT to celebrate and be thankful for this summer. Earlier this month, Alex and I got engaged at Disney World on the eve of my 30th birthday!!! I’ve finally shared the news with all my family, so it’s time to tell the interwebs- I’M GETTING MARRIED! AHHHH! More on that later…as I’m still processing all of it.

    Back to these watermelon tequila pops (which I probably should have called watermelon margarita pops), are terrific when served with a some lime wedges and a coarse rock salt. YUM. I’m not the biggest fan of tequila, (simply because one whiff of the bottle transports me back to drunk college parties) but these boozy pops are on point. They’re delicious, refreshing, and super easy to make. CHEERS!

    Watermelon Tequila Pops

    Ingredients:

    • 8 cups sliced watermelon (about 4 cups juiced)
    • 2 Tbsp agave syrup, or more according to taste
    • 3/4 cup lime juice
    • 1/2 cup tequila
    • 2 Tbsp Grand Marnier
    • zest from 1 lime

    Directions:

    1. Pulse together watermelon, agave, and lime juice in a blender until smooth. Add tequila, Grand Marnier and lime zest.
    2. Pour into plastic ice pop bags, twist and tie closed. Freeze for at least 6 hours until solid.*

    *Note: It's best to freeze them in ice pop bags rather than popsicles molds because alcohol does not completely freeze. The amount of alcohol in these ice pops results in a slightly slushy pop.

    I love your variety of grown-up pops. Don’t they seem a little…well…naughty? LOL I was wondering how well they would freeze with the alcohol, but I see you answered my question in the recipe. I can’t wait to try them as a fun substitute to jello shots.
