Thursty Thursdays - Cocktail on a Stick!


The best cocktails are the fastest and easiest to make, I like to say. This easily translates into, "I need a drink, STAT!" While this one is super-duper quick to whip up, you may be like me and apt to sit next to the freezer, hoping for the ice gods to breathe their chilly breath onto my margapops.

Step 1: Find a few Dixie cups and wooden popsicle sticks.
Step 2: Pick up some Mike's Hard Lemonade Strawberry Margaritas.
Step 3: Fill cups with margarita liquid.
Step 4: Freeze for 2 hours.
Step 5: Stick wooden popsicle sticks into half-frozen popsicles.
Step 6: Freeze for 2 more hours.
Step 7: Garnish with a lime and serve.

Here are some additional tips from the source:
  • A traditional margarita made with tequila needs a much colder temperature to freeze than the traditional home unit allows, so that’s why something like these Mike’s Hard Lemonade is better suited for making these popsicles.
  • DO NOT rim with salt until serving time, as the salt will melt the pops. Alternatively, you can rim the Strawberry Margarita Pops with chunky crystal sugar for an aesethetic effect without worrying about the melting factor. 
  • To keep popsicles chilled as long as possible, place the serving tray in the freezer and then top  the tray with a layer of crushed iced.


Merci beaucoup!
