Food and Drink: Melon Margarita Lollies

On a hot sunny weekend I can’t think of anything more refreshing that these cool margarita and melon ice lollies.So simple to make, just dip the pieces of melon into the margarita mix, pop them on a wooden stick and then freeze until icy and cool. I hope the sun is out where you are this weekend….enjoy!

3/4 cup tequila
1/2 cup Grand Marnier
1/2 cup fresh lime juice
Pinch of coarse salt
8 ounces cantaloupe, rinds removed
8 ounces watermelon, rinds removed

Stir together tequila, Grand Marnier, fresh lime juice, and coarse salt in a large bowl. Cut cantaloupe and watermelon into wedges. Soak in tequila mixture for 15 minutes. Insert ice-pop sticks into wedges. Freeze on a rack-lined baking sheet for 1 hour.
