INGREDIENTS

  • Strawberry Simple Syrup
  • 16 ounces strawberries, hulled
  • 1 cup water
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • Strawberry Margarita Popsicles
  • 1/2 cup limeade (Can substitute fresh lime juice)
  • 1/2 cup tequila
  • 1/2 cup seltzer (For best results, use a citrus flavor)
  • 2 tbsp orange liquer
  • Flaky sea salt

Instructions

Strawberry Simple Syrup

In a blender or food processor, puree strawberries until liquified. If you don't want to mess with appliances, grab a potato masher and get to smashing in a large bowl.

In a medium saucepan, combine strawberry puree, water, and sugar together. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat and simmer for 5 minutes.

Once syrup is cool, combine in a large pitcher with limeade, tequila, seltzer, and the orange liqueur.

Pour into popsicle molds. Sprinkle each filled mold with flaky sea salt.

Freeze for 6 hours, or overnight for best results.

To enjoy, eat solo or add to a glass and top with seltzer!

Notes

If you're a purist, use fresh lime juice in place of limeade for a more tart taste. If you'd rather forget about the tequila element, the flavors and sweetness of limeade pair perfectly to mask the booze.

If you prefer a chunkier popsicle, this is for you! If you'd like a smoother bite, strain your strawberries through a fine mesh sieve before creating the simple syrup.
