Tequila-spiked strawberry ice pops are a refreshing treat on a hot day.
Yields 8 ice pops.
cup freshly squeezed lime juice (6 to 8 limes)
cup triple sec*
cup superfine sugar
pt strawberries, quartered
*If not using alcohol, add another 1/2 cup water and 1/4 cup fresh lime juice
Special equipment: ice pop molds.
In a blender add the lime juice, water, triple sec, tequila, and sugar; blend until the sugar has dissolved. Set aside 8 strawberry quarters and put the remainder into the blender; blend until the strawberries are pureed. Skewer a piece of the reserved strawberries onto the end of each ice pop stick. Pour the margarita into the ice pop molds, insert the skewered sticks, and freeze at least 4 hours or overnight.
Unmold the ice pops and serve.
