Cocktail Popsicle: Honeydew Cucumber Margarita Popsicles

Honeydew Cucumber Margarita Popsicle ~ Get  your tequila with no drunk-dial regrets in this week’s cocktail popsicle featuring a honeydew margarita with cucumber. This may be my favorite cocktail pop yet! I love how the cucumber lends a crisp refreshing edge to sweetness of the honeydew and the tequila bite.

Let me say, I totally took one for the team this week! It’s not often (okay, never) that I find myself sloshed on a Monday night. Seriously, no shots were taken during the making of these cocktail popsicles….uh.

Okay, I’m a liar – one shot.

I took one and then continued to mix and drink taste test along the way. Thirty minutes later I was singing while filling the popsicle forms.  And, uh, small confession, I’m so embarrassingly tone deaf that the only time I’m ever rock my chords is in the car, alone.

But you know how alcohol can have that un-inhibiting effect. Thank goodness Matt wasn’t home to witness my shameless note-breaking session.

Before I point you over to Endless Simmer for my recipe write for this week’s installment of the Cocktail Popsicle Series, you have to watch the following video clip.

It’s Pee Wee Herman, Adam Sandberg and Anderson Cooper’s Tequila skit. I’m sure many of you have seen it, but for those of you haven’t . . . its H-I-L-A-R-I-O-U-S! I’ve seen it so many times that whenever I hear the word tequila it filters through with their voices screaming, “Tequila!”.

Anyhow,  if you can’t have these right away to push you over the hump, the video will certainly entertain you and break up your day.

Enjoy . . . and depending on where you are, the video is maybe NSFW.

      Hi Liz-I got the form from Amazon: http://su.pr/2aTMPs If you get it, don’t use the metal top. It’s extremely hard to remove once everything freezes.

    I have that same mold and hate it. The lid doesn’t work, the sticks get caught and half of them end up broken. Did you experience that?

      Charlene- I skipped using the lid and I did end up with two broken ones, but that had more to do with my impatience of not waiting a few seconds after running hot water on the outside of the mold. I actually like the mold quiet a bit.

      Try it without the like or soak the sticks in water first so the expand before you put them in rather than expanding while freezing, which can make the sticks hard to remove from the lid

    This sounds like the perfect adult popsicle! I’ve never thought to make a cocktail popsicle before. This is so inspiring! So many possibilities, just in time for the first summer heatwave…
