Hola mi gente,
It’s almost summertime. I know it’s hard to believe with how cold it’s been out. One of the things I love about summer are the summery cocktails. Now, I am not much of a drinker, but I found a great way to enjoy a popular cocktail in the form of an adult treat. Let’s head to our cocinas and put together this tropical delight to share on your next cookout or adult event.
What you need:
- 1/2 cup cranberry juice cocktail
- 2 tablespoons lime juice
- 2 teaspoons honey
- 1 1/2 cups orange juice
- 1/4 cup gold tequila
What you do:
1. In a measuring cup, combine cranberry juice cocktail, lime juice, and honey. Using 8 plastic frozen pop molds or 3-ounce paper cups, pour 4 teaspoons of the juice mixture into the bottom of each. Freeze for 1 hour or until firm but not hard. In another liquid measuring cup, combine orange juice and tequila.
2. Carefully pour orange juice mixture over cranberry mixture. Cover paper cups with foil and insert wooden craft sticks into cups or insert pop mold sticks into pop molds; freeze overnight. Remove pops from molds or tear off the paper and remove foil before serving. Makes 8 frozen pops.
Tip: You can make “virgin” ice pops by eliminating the tequila and adding an extra tablespoon each of the cranberry juice cocktail and lime juice.
