Do you remember eating watermelon when you were a child? I have vivid memories of running around in the backyard, playing with my sisters and eating watermelon while spitting the seeds. It was a lot of fun and even down to this day, I can’t eat a piece of watermelon without thinking about those enjoyable times from my youth.
Sometimes it is just necessary to enjoy something nostalgic but that doesn’t mean we don’t want to make it fun and up-to-date for our adult life as well. That is what this recipe brings to the table. It is for watermelon Margarita pop tales and you can make these with your friends to enjoy an adult treat in the middle of a warm summer afternoon. Of course, you can make these at any time of year, provided you have watermelon and tequila available.
5 cups seedless watermelon
3/4 cup lime juice
1/2 cup sugar
1/2 cup tequila
5 ounce Dixie cups
Short popsicle sticks or craft spoons
Place all your ingredients in a blender and blend until smooth.
Strain the blended ingredients in a mesh sieve to remove any pulp.
Pour the strained mixture into your Dixie cups.
Prepare your limes by slicing 3 thick slices from the middle of each lime. Insert a popsicle stick or craft spoon through the middle of each slice.
Place your limes on top of the watermelon mixture in each cup.
Freeze until solid. Sprinkle with margarita salt before serving. Enjoy!
