Here’s how this went down. I wanted to make jalapeño mango margarita popsicles for Cinco de Mayo. But as I was shooting this recipe, I thought to myself why not put the popsicle in a margarita?

It’s marg-ception.

It’s like getting two margaritas in one.

So it happened, and I love it.

They’re super creamy thanks to the texture of the mangos, and are the equivalent of eating a whole mango and a half shot of tequila. Seriously.

The spiciness comes from a jalapeño-infused tequila that takes approximately 1 minute of hands on time to make. The end result is a subtle, spicy tequila that pairs perfectly with the rich mango.

And if spice is not your thing, you can always omit the jalapeño part, and just use regular tequila. Whatever floats your boat.

This recipe makes 10 popsicles, so it’s perfect for a crowd. And if you don’t have a popsicle mold, I got this one on Amazon a year ago and highly recommend it!

That’s all I have to say about these pops. Happy Wednesday, and enjoy!
