Skinny Margarita Popsicles

Please join me in welcoming the word “skinny” to the site today. She’s making her much anticipated debut just in time for Cinco de Mayo. Rumor has it she’s a bit nervous since the folk around here tend to be the deep-friedcheese-stuffedchocolate-dipped types. But don’t let her presence intimidate you. Say it with me now: “This is not a diet blog. This is not a diet blog. This is not a diet blog.”

I do have a confession to make. OK, two confessions:

    1. My obsession with Dance Moms has recently crossed the “I can’t attend social functions on Tuesday nights because if Chloe messes up her solo I need to see if Miss Abby will be pissed” threshold. Send help.
    2. I’d rather eat my calories than drink them.

Number 2 may come as a total shock given the general lack of pizza, cake, pasta, cookies, brownies, pies and candy around these parts. But trust me when I tell you I’m a vodka-soda-with-two-limes kinda gal. However, the popularity of the infamous “skinny margarita” inspired me to create Skinny Margarita Popsicles, allowing us to drink our margaritas and eat them, too.

Cook Time 0 mins
Total Time 10 mins
Servings 8 (6-inch) popsicles


  • 3/4 cup fresh lime juice (from about 6 limes)
  • 1 1/4 cups fresh orange juice
  • 2 Tablespoons agave nectar
  • 1 cup silver tequila

Special equipment:

  • popsicle molds, popsicle sticks


  • Whisk together the lime juice, orange juice, agave nectar and tequila.
  • Pour the liquid into the popsicle molds. Freeze the molds until the liquid begins to firm, about 2 hours, then insert the popsicle sticks. Continue freezing until the popsicles are solid, at least 10 hours. When ready to serve, run the molds under warm water to release the popsicles.

Kelly's Notes:

  • I've swapped fresh orange juice for the Triple Sec, but you can add a splash back in for the traditional booziness.
  • I like my margaritas more sour than sweet, so feel free to up the agave nectar if you want a sweeter popsicle.

    1. Hi there! If you’re viewing the site on a mobile device, click TAP HERE TO READ THE FULL POST and then scroll down to see the recipe.

  1. I loved this. But I am not familiar with agave nectar here. Can I use normal honey instead of that? Also can you suggest any non-alcoholic alternative for tequilla?

  2. Totally love the idea of swapping orange juice with triple sec. It’s the only right way ;)

  3. I’m thinking about doing these in icecube form for a girl’s afternoon/night punch…with some of the lime sherbet/citrus punch to add just a little kick! Though I’ll make some for myself, just have to remember which popsicles are mine, and not the kiddo friendly kind. :)
