There’s nothing more refreshing on a hot summer day than an ice-cold popsicle—except maybe an ice-cold Margarita popsicle. Frozen and lickable, the tequila-spiked classic is the ultimate boozy treat to enjoy at the beach, a picnic or simply sitting on your porch during a lazy, warm weather day. But getting alcohol to freeze is a challenge—you need the perfect balance of booze, water, sugar and fat or fiber to get it right. So we employed the help of our friend Justin Harter of Citysticks to help us master these frozen Margarita treats.
“What's interesting about a Margarita in frozen ice pop form is the difference in consistency from the swirly machine slurp we've all grown to love/hate,” Harter says. “Because we're actually pureeing the fruit in the process, it allows for more texture in the mix.”
