Boozy, fruity pops for hot summer days
We test and taste every recipe we publish. While we collaborate with a lot of talented chefs, we adapt and tinker with everything in our test kitchen. (It smells really good in here). Our goal is to make sure every recipe works as well in your home kitchen as it does in ours. So go on, get cooking with confidence.
What's better than a frozen fruit pop? A cocktail on a stick, of course. Ice pops made from watermelon juice and purée, fresh mint, a shot of tequila, lime juice and a touch of agave syrup are the perfect way to cool off on hot, sticky days. You can create your own icy libation by using the measurements above as a guide. Mix it up, bite in and chill out.
