I just can’t quit you, tequila.  You are everything that is good and summery.  When it’s hot, I need you.  When it’s sunny, I need you.  When it’s a Tuesday….you get the point.

Popsicles are the perfect summer treat and what better way to make them 100% more awesome than to add some booze to them.  You may remember my Basil Berry Boozy Popsicles I made on TCL before (SO GOOOOOOOOOD.) but since my obsession with tequila, and strawberries being in full swing right now, how could I not make a frozen strawberry margarita on a stick?!?  And I threw in a little coconut milk to make them creamy and tropical.

Make these!  Now!

Strawberry Coconut Margarita Popsicles

(makes about 4 cups of puree)

 

16 oz package of fresh strawberries, washed and chopped.  Frozen berries are OK, too!  (save a few berries for the simple syrup, recipe below)

1 cup of coconut milk

1/2 cup silver tequila
1/4 cup Cointreau
1/4-1/2 cup of strawberry simple syrup, depending on your taste, I like margaritas that aren’t too sweet so I used 1/4 cup.
Put all ingredients in to a blender and blend until you have a fine puree.  Add puree to popsicle molds.  Wait about 30-45 minutes before adding sticks to molds.  Freeze overnight.  Eat like a boss.
Strawberry Simple Syrup
Make strawberry simply syrup by bringing 1 cup water, 1 cup sugar, to a simmer.  Stir to dissolve all of the sugar and add 3-4 fresh strawberries.   Let syrup bubble for about 2 minutes then take off the heat.  Let strawberries sit in syrup for 5 minutes, then remove them and discard.  Let syrup cool to room temperature.  Syrup will keep in refrigerator for 2 weeks.
