I love a good margarita, especially in the summer. Who doesn't? Recently, with the temperature climbing quickly here in Texas, I've become somewhat addicted to the idea of poptails. What's a poptail...? Well, it's the amazing notion of putting a popsicle and cocktail together into one amazing treat!
I've seen poptails done in a few different ways, whether mixing your ingredients and freezing together or adding a nice fresh popsicle to your favorite mix-ins. Today I decided to do my take on a Watermelon Agave Margarita using these amazing, local to me, GoodPops.
As the popsicle melts down the fresh fruit inside the GoodPop shows it's beautiful self with small chunks of watermelon and the cold frosty ice of the melting popsicle working together to tame the tequila and triple sec; working as a healthier replacement of a 'sweet and sour' mix.
GoodPop uses fresh fruit and nothing artificial, ever. These healthy frozen treats come in 7 great flavors including non-dairy Hibiscus Mint, Watermelon Agave, Strawberry Lemonade, Strawberry, and dairy-based Coldbrew Coffee, Chocolate Milk, and Banana Cinnamon flavors. The pops are low-cal and the non-dairy flavors range as low as 40-70 calories a pop, while the dairy-based pops are only 80-120 calories each! Find out where to find GoodPops near you.
That's all pretty amazing for a popsicle! My little girl absolutely loves the Strawberry Lemonade flavor, and the best part is that I don't have to feel guilty about letting her have one since they're all natural and made with fresh fruits!
I garnished my glass with a traditional salt rim and a lime wedge, just because that's how all margaritas should come. Depending on your tastes, you might prefer a sugar rim instead though! Either way, this is the perfect way to enjoy a margarita and stay cool this summer.
You better believe this will be my drink of choice this year!
