Like cocktails? Like ice pops? Let’s combine the two and make boozy ice pops! 

Makes 8 Pops

2 cups fresh grapefruit juice

1/4 cup lime juice

1/2 cup simple syrup

1 1/2 cups tequila

1 cup club soda

1 cup orange juice

flaky salt

grated lime zest

  1. In a large bowl, mix together grapefruit, lime, simple syrup, tequila, and club soda.
  2. Fill the bags 1⁄3 full with the mixture and let them stand up in a bowl to freeze.
  3. Add the orange juice and freeze again, standing up.
  4. Once frozen, add the rest of the grapefruit liquid, tie, and freeze one last time for at least 8 hours.
  5. Serve with a mixture of salt and lime zest.


Because alcohol does not freeze, some of these pops will not get completely frozen. They’ll all freeze a bit different; the more alcohol in them, the less hard they’ll be. Turn your freezer up high and you’ll be fine!
