Cocktail Popsicles

While we are building our house, we live in a pool house and LOVE getting to relax by the pool in our front yard! To beat the heat this summer, I thought I'd combine two summer favorites to make one delightful treat--Cocktail Popsicles (and just in time for the 4th of July)!

Here are there recipes:

All of the ingredients.
The limes secure the popsicle sticks and keep them from moving.

Lime-A-Rita (you could also use the Dos-A-Rita by Dos Equis)

Fill cups or popsicle molds with Lime-A-Rita (or margarita mixed beverage of your choice). Slice limes and insert popsicle stick.  Add stick and lime slice to dixie cups (the limes will help hold the popsicle sicks in place).  Freeze for at least 3 hours.  Once the popsicles are fully frozen, roll lime side of popsicle in salt.  ENJOY!

I don't have great assembly photos for the bourbon peach since they were more straightforward to create.  You just put all of the ingredients in the blender, mix it up, and then pour into you dixie cups or molds.

2 cups lemonade
1 cup peaches
2 ounces Bourbon

Combine all ingredients in a blender and mix until smooth.  Pour into popsicle molds (if you are using a dixie cup, use tin foil on the top of the cup secure your popsicle stick.  Formal instructions are here).  Let freeze at least 3 hours.  ENJOY!

These popsicles are so easy to make and a nice cold treat when it's so hot outside!
