Back of Drunken Desserts: Watermelon Margarita Popsicles The news about the effects of watermelon inspired me to create my newest popsicle: watermelon margarita! Served with a small bowl of margarita salt, these uberfrozen margs were tangy and delicious. Beware, the popsicles contain liquor and melt rather quickly. To avoid a melty mess, I froze my platter for an hour before serving. Learn how to make these simple, scrumptious popsicles when you ! Watermelon Margarita Popsicles Original Recipe Ingredients2 cups watermelon puree (roughly 1/4 medium size seedless watermelon) 1/4 cup lime juice (roughly 1 large lime) 3 ounces tequila 1 ounce cointreau 2/3 cup sugar Directions Chop the watermelon into small pieces. Using a Cuisinart, puree the watermelon. Place the puree in a large mixing bowl. Add lime juice and sugar to watermelon puree. Stir until the sugar has dissolved. Add tequila and cointreau and stir well. Fill popsicle molds or Dixie cups. If using a dixie cup, cut small squares of tinfoil to cover the top of each of the cups. Use a sharp small knife and cut small slits in the tops of the tinfoil to insert the popsicle stick. Place the Dixie cups in a flat bottomed container. Place the popsicles in the freezer and wait patiently until frozen. Makes 10 3-ounce popsicles.

ThePerfectScore 8 years so going to make those! yummy spaghetina 8 years I imagine these will freeze a lot more slushy than something like a plain fruit juice popsicle because the tequila and cointreau that are dispersed throughout will never freeze. Instead of making popsicles, I might try making frozen margaritas. Put all the contents into a plastic container, add more tequila than the recipe calls for to taste (I think there was so little to allow the popsicles to freeze into something more solid), stir it all up, and pop it into the freezer. The liquor will keep it slushy, and then it can be served in a glass rimmed with margarita salt and garnished with a watermelon slice. It should be less messy than the popsicle version, and stronger, although maybe not as much fun to look at! I really like the idea of the basil addition that robs mentioned too, yum!

Yum, have you ever made a rum-soaked fruit dessert for an outside party, you know the ones where you clean out and carve up a watermelon to make it into a pretty "bowl" and fill it up with chunks of cold, rum- and sugar water soaked fruit? I know these are really old fashioned, but I LOVE them!.... Nyrina-Windu 8 years Yum, sweet idea :) rainonme224 8 years Those sound so good!
