Boozy margarita popsicles are as fun as they are delicious. They make the perfect summertime treat!

Margarita Popcicle

Popsicles. Summer. Childhood. Those words belong together. UNLESS you are Erin Nichols and have written an entire book on how to turn your childhood summertime treat into something a little more suited for your adult self.

The offer to review the book Poptails: 60 Boozy Treats Served on a Stick couldn't have come at a better time. It was mid-summer, hot, and sticky: perfect popsicle weather. I know it's not mid-summer anymore but these Frozen Margarita Popsicles really are the perfect before-the-kids-get-home-from-school treat.

Margarita Popcicle

Erin's come up with 60 (60!) boozy popsicle recipes that will keep you going all year 'round. The White Wine Sangria and the Pretty Pink Margarita are two of my summertime favs. But why stop there? With The Pumpkin Patch, German Chocolate Cake, and Christmas Cheer you can keep making boozy popsicles long after the days turn chilly.

With 8 chapters on different poptails, as well as an introduction into making flavored simple syrups, you won't go wrong with this little book. Do make sure you read the whole book, there's some rather useful information in the introduction such as how to prepare the alcohol first so it will freeze. Oops, might have missed that and had watery popsicles the first time 🙂

  • Put a slice of lime into each ice pop mold then carefully pour the tequila mixture equally between your ice pop molds. Do not fill the molds to the top; leave a small amount of space to allow for expansion when the liquid freezes or your freezer may receive an icy margarita bath.

  • Sprinkle a very small amount of kosher salt into each pop. Top with ice pop sticks or reusable ice pop tops with attached sticks. Let the pops freeze for at least 24 hours. To unmold the pops, run them under hot water for a few seconds.
