Gourmet Club: Dessert and Drinks on a Stick

The final course of the night was dessert. Like the salad course, we ended up with a beautifully presented set of fruit kabobs. The fruit was a nice ending after such a heavy main course.

The second drink that I had made for the club, was my very own Drink on a Stick.

I made both margarita and strawberry daiquiri popsicles.

I took the easy way out and used pre-mixed drinks. I poured them into plastic 3 oz cups and into the freezer. After 1-2 hours I inserted the sticks. It worked great. The recipe below was my original inspiration.

Margarita Popsicles

Cook Time: 5 hours 30 minutes

Ingredients:

  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1 cup water
  • 1 cup fresh squeezed lime juice (8-12 small limes, usually)
  • 1/4 cup silver tequila
  • 1/4 cup orange liqueur
  • 12 3 oz disposable paper cups
  • 12 wooden popsicle sticks or spoons

Directions:

Heat water and sugar in a small sauce pan until completely dissolved and the water is clear. Let cool.

Pour into a pitcher with lime juice, tequila, and orange liqueur.

Pour 2 1/2 ounces (5 Tbsp) of margarita into each cup.

Place cups into a baking dish and put the dish in the freezer.

After about 2 hours, start checking the popsicles. Once they’re frozen enough to support the wooden stick, insert a stick into each popsicle, pushing 3/4 of the way into the popsicle.

Let freeze several more hours or until completely frozen (I let them freeze overnight)

To serve, peel the paper cup away from the popsicle, starting at the seam of the cup, and carefully remove the bottom.

Consume immediately.
