For a refreshing grown up treat this summer, make some simple alcoholic popsicles! The fresh watermelon and lemon are the perfect combination of sweet and tart and the tequila gives it a nice punch.
▪3 cups cubed watermelon
▪1/4 cup sugar
▪1 teaspoon lemon zest
▪1/4 cup fresh lemon juice
▪1/4 cup tequila
▪2 Tablespoons triple sec
1. In a blender, blend together the watermelon, sugar, lemon zest, lemon juice, tequila, and triple sec until smooth, about 1-2 minutes. Pour the mixture through a fine mesh strainer into a large bowl, discarding any solids and seeds left behind.
2. Pour the mixture into a popsicle mold or paper cups then insert wooden sticks. Freeze until firm, preferably overnight.
This recipe makes 6-8 servings.
If you want the refreshing fruit flavor without the booze, simply substitute 1/4 cup water or lemon lime soda for the tequila and triple sec. You could also make these with lime zest/juice instead of lemon.
