Boozy Margarita Popsicle Recipe

Warm the water a bit to help dissolve the sugar. It shouldn’t be hot, about 30 seconds in the microwave or briefly on the stove is sufficient. We will often make them with a touch more tequila, but they won’t freeze as solid. If you are using a mold which easily release the pops feel free to use about 1/3 cup of tequila instead of the 1/4 cup.
