These Frozen Melon-Margarita Pops are tangy, hand-held treats that make you feel grown-up and kid-like at the same time. Dip juicy pieces of melon in margarita mix, perch on wooden sticks, and freeze until icy. For a zingy combo of cool and hot, nibble peppery nasturtiums between bites.

Serves: 6

You’ll Need:

  • 3/4 cup tequila
  • 1/2 cup Grand Marnier
  • 1/2 cup fresh lime juice
  • Pinch of coarse salt
  • 8 ounces cantaloupe, rinds removed
  • 8 ounces watermelon, rinds removed
  • Ice-pop sticks
  • Nasturtiums (optional)

Directions:

  1. Stir together tequila, Grand Marnier, fresh lime juice, and coarse salt in a large bowl. 
  2. Cut cantaloupe and watermelon into wedges; soak in tequila mixture for 15 minutes. 
  3. Insert ice-pop sticks into wedges. Freeze on a rack-lined baking sheet for 1 hour. 
  4. Serve with nasturtiums (optional).
