I have to admit that popsicles don’t usually do it for me. A frozen, sugary, goopy mess of syrup doesn’t typically sound appealing. Until one day when I had leftover sherbet and some of my beloved margarita mix. I am ALWAYS down for a margarita but I didn’t think I would win any parenting awards sitting in my backyard at 3 in the afternoon sipping a margarita while my kids were running through the sprinkler.
Enter…POPTAILS! Have you heard of these brilliant little things!?! They’re “popsicle-cocktails” or “momsicles” or whatever you want to call them. I call them fantastic. Its a small little cocktail frozen into a popsicle form. You can make them ahead of time and serve them at a summer pool party or a late afternoon play date (just don’t mix them up with the regular popsicles!) or keep them for the nights your husband (or wife) is working late. Whatever your reason, give these a try. You can add a little extra tequila, but not too much. It may sound appealing but it will prevent your pops from freezing completely. This lime sherbet & margarita blend is delicious! Happy summer!
