Margaritas are definitely one of my favorite summer cocktails (it just doesn’t feel right to drink them when it’s cold outside), but when it’s too hot even for a margarita, that’s when you pull out the margarita popsicles.
These are somehow creamy, sweet, sour, and salty all at the same time. I know, it sounds impossible and too good to be true. Oh, and aside from juicing the limes, they’re pretty quick to put together. You need a lot of lime juice, though, so retain the services of someone with plenty of arm strength to help you juice them all. Promise them a popsicle (or two) in payment, and maybe you’ll be able to find some helpers.
1¼ cup fresh lime juice (about 8-10 limes)
1 (14oz) can of sweetened condensed milk
1 cup water
3 Tbsp tequila
1 Tbsp Triple Sec
pinch of table salt
Kosher salt or margarita salt
In a large container with a spout (such as a pitcher), combine lime juice, water, condensed milk, table salt, tequila, and Triple Sec. Whisk ingredients until mixed, then pour into a popsicle mold.
Freeze for at least 6 hours, or overnight. Sprinkle with margarita salt immediately before serving.
