While Lounging Poolside...

[Photo by YumSugar] Slurp This. One of our very own GofG writers, Sarah Mandato, recently sent us an e-mail saying that the Cocktail Popsicles at the Counter in NYC reminded her of us. Not too sure what that says about us, but we sure did love the idea of a cocktail in popsicle form. After careful researching, I found this great recipe at YumSugar for Watermelon Margarita Popsicles. Seriously if there is anything you should be consuming while lounging poolside, it should definitely be a cocktail popsicle. If you have any great Ingredients and directions below:

INGREDIENTS:

2 c. watermelon puree (roughly 1/4 medium size seedless watermelon)

1/4 c. lime juice (roughly 1 large lime)

6 oz. tequila

1 oz. cointreau

2/3 c. sugar

DIRECTIONS:

Chop the watermelon into small pieces. Using a blender, puree the watermelon.

Place the puree in a large mixing bowl.

Add lime juice and sugar to watermelon puree. Stir until the sugar has dissolved. Add tequila and cointreau and stir well.

Fill popsicle molds or Dixie cups. If using a dixie cup, cut small squares of tinfoil to cover the top of each of the cups.

Use a sharp small knife and cut small slits in the tops of the tinfoil to insert the popsicle stick.

Place the Dixie cups in a flat bottomed container. Place the popsicles in the freezer and wait patiently until frozen.
