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.

Makes ten 2.5 ounce Pops



  • 1 3/4 cups warm Water
  • 3/4 cup Sugar
  • 2/3 cup fresh Lime Juice
  • 1/4 cup Tequila
  • 1 Tablespoon Orange Liqueur (Grand Marnier, Cointreau, triple sec, etc.)
  • optional 1 lime, cut into thin slices
  • optional – kosher or sea salt , for garnishing pops


  1. If using wooden ice pop sticks, soak sticks for an hour in warm water before making pops (helps minimize them from floating up when inserted into molds.)
  2. In bowl, stir together water, sugar, lime juice, tequila, and orange liqueur. Make sure sugar is completely dissolved.
  3. Pour and divide the margarita mixture between 10 ice pop molds. (optional) Add a thin slice of lime into each pop mold.
  4. Insert popsicle sticks and freeze for 4 hours or until completely solid.
  5. (optional) Before serving, dip or sprinkle some salt on the tips of the un-molded pops.
