Welcome to Day 2 of #CookOutWeek!
It is strawberry season in Wisconsin and what better way to enjoy a margarita than to add fresh delicious strawberries? For this recipe I use a homemade margarita base, but limeade would also work perfectly. Add a few muddled strawberries and a pinch of salt to each pop and you have a perfect hot weather treat. I actually like to a bit of silver tequila in a glass the place my popsicle right in the glass.... perfect way to adapt this non-alcoholic treat for adults.
I bought a popsicle mold last summer and this is my first time using it! For some reason I thought it was going to be difficult to use....lucky for me I found pour liquid into a mold. Ha. I opted to mash my fresh berries because I like have pieces of frozen fruit, but if you prefer a smoother texture you can puree your fruit. These frozen treats are a perfect way to start summer and if you serve them with a little tequila your guests be thrilled. I had a little additional salt on the side to sprinkle as well and it was perfect to essentially create a margarita on a stick! My popsicle mold
makes 6 popsicles, but you can adjust your recipe depending on how many you make and the size of the molds.
I can't wait to enjoy one of these babies with a bit of tequila on my patio with my husband after the kiddos are down for the night! Check back the rest of the week for more amazing #CookOutWeek recipes, don't forget to enter the Rafflecopter and checkout the link-up below!
