Thirsty Thursday Recipe!

Have you ever been lazing around on a day off, maybe by the pool or on the beach or folding laundry, and somewhere around lunch time you suddenly think - I could go for a drink!  No?  Oh, OK, it's just me then....  Anywhoooo - here's a refreshing way to cool off AND enjoy a nice cocktail (without being too obvious).


Watermelon Margarita Ice Pops
5 cups chopped seedless watermelon (1 1/4 pounds)
2 tablespoons fresh lime juice
3 tablespoons superfine granulated sugar
1/4 cup water
1/4 cup silver tequila

Equipment: 8 (1/3-cup) ice pop molds and 8 wooden sticks

Purée all ingredients in a blender until smooth, then strain through a fine-mesh sieve into a large measuring cup, pressing on and then discarding solids. Skim off any foam, then pour into molds. Freeze 30 minutes. Insert sticks, then freeze until firm, about 24 hours.

If you decide to give this recipe a go, invite me over let me know!
