    Brief Description

    A fun adult cocktail treat.

    Main Ingredient:

    tequila

    Category:  Alcoholic

    Cuisine:  American

    Prep Time: 15 min

    Notes

    Alcohol makes the pops slow to freeze, so it's best to make them a day ahead.
    To make these pops without the alcohol at all, add juice of 1 extra orange and an extra 1/4 cup of filtered water.
    These can be prepared up to a week in advance.
