Strawberry Margarita Ice Pops

"I saw this recipe on The View in a segment called "Spike It". This is a great idea to bring to outdoor gatherings such as 4th of July. Becareful of the kiddies since this does contain alcohol. Cook time is freeze time. Recipe provided courtesy of Tyler Florence"

  1. While I haven't tried the frozen result I did try the mix and it was really tasty! Will be having the pops tonight and can't wait!
  2. What a great summertime treat. I will be making these for my 4th of July party. I'm sure they'll be a big hit with the over twenty one crowd. My husband thinks they're even better after they are a few days old.


I'm a recent convert to vegetarianism but my husband is not. Since I have been doing most of the cooking it becomes a balancing act of seeing what I can add meat to later or what meat substitue he'll allow for me use. I'm a military brat who grew up with lots of ethnic food but very little "American" cuisine while my husband is a meat and potatos guy whose idea of green vegetables is parsley. My husband can fix any recipe that isn't turning out quite right but he can't follow a recipe worth a damn. I am the complete opposite. I can follow a recipe but when it doesn't taste right or the a sauce isn't coming along correctly I'm lost. We are probably one of the rare copules that gets along in the kitchen (well sometimes anyway).
