Margarita Push Up Pops for Cinco De Mayo {& Giveaway!}

By: Amy Atlas, in Great Finds, Swag

Cinco de Mayo is this week and we LOVE this fun take on the frozen margarita from darling Courtney Dial’s book Push-up Pops. This book is packed full of great ideas from cake and pie push-up pops to frozen pops and more. We all know how big push-up pops are this year and Courtney’s ideas are fantastic!  The Frozen Lime Margarita push-up pops are perfect for your Cinco de Mayo party this weekend. As we like to say, Grow it down by taking out the liquor and adding sugar to the rim to ensure smiles on your little niños!


PARTY TIP: Host a Mexican fiesta and greet guests at the door with these frozen lime margaritas, rimmed in salt! Try a variety of flavors by adding in frozen strawberries, mango, and other fruit.

Yields 10 push-up pops

6 ounces limeade concentrate
6 ounces tequila
1/4 cup triple sec
2 tablespoons lime juice
1 tablespoon lemon juice
5 cups ice

Puree ice, limeade concentrate, tequila, triple sec, lime and lemon juices in blender until smooth. Fill push-up pops with frozen margaritas and serve! Place in freezer if preparing early. Garnish with slice of lime. Try rimming the push pops in salt or sugar too!
