For a refreshing grown up treat this summer, make some simple alcoholic popsicles! The fresh watermelon and lemon are the perfect combination of sweet and tart and the tequila gives it a nice punch. We had extra watermelon and couldn’t eat it fast enough so these were the perfect solution. Just make sure to hide them in the back of the freezer, because if spotted by a toddler, they’ll want one for sure. Just trust me on that one. 😉
If you want the refreshing fruit flavor without the booze, simply substitute 1/4 cup water or lemon lime soda for the tequila and triple sec. You could also make these with lime zest/juice instead of lemon. Enjoy and hope you’re staying cool this summer!
Watermelon Lemonade Boozy Popsicles
3 cups cubed watermelon
1/4 cup sugar
1 tsp lemon zest
1/4 cup fresh lemon juice
1/4 cup tequila
2 Tbsp triple sec
Yield: 6-8 popsicles
In a blender, blend together the watermelon, sugar, lemon zest, lemon juice, tequila, and triple sec until smooth, 1-2 minutes. Pour through a fine mesh strainer into a large bowl, discarding any solids and seeds left behind.
Pour watermelon mixture into popsicle mold or paper cups then insert wooden sticks. Freeze until firm, preferably overnight.
