Strawberry Basil Margarita Popsicles are not only boozy and delicious, but they are simple to make! Everyone is going to be begging for them this summer!
Y’all, now that summer is here, I am READY for all the boozy popsicles!! Have you heard of them?! They are popping up EVERYWHERE! Naturally I wanted to share these Strawberry Basil Margarita Popsicles first, because it’s the most popular cocktail on Domestic Superhero. You are going to LOVE these!
All you have to do to make these boozy poptails is make the cocktail, then put it into these amazing popsicle bags! Then you freeze them for 24 hours and BOOM DONE! You can make whatever kind of boozy popsicle you want, but I highly recommend you try out these Strawberry Basil Margarita Popsicles first, because they are so so good and so refreshing!
I will say, you need to keep these boozy popsicles cold cold cold, because the alcohol will make them melt fairly quickly. So keep them in your freezer until you are ready to eat them. I have found that I really enjoy taking them on an evening stroll or onto my back porch after the kids have gone to bed. So tasty and boozy!
I also love making these at home because it saves money!!! These boozy popsicles are popping up in stores and they generally cost $6-$8 PER POPSICLE!! Make them yourself and it’s a fraction of that cost, and it’s so easy (and the bags are cheap too)!

- 3/4 cup tequila
- 1 cup diced strawberries, about 6-8
- 1 handful fresh basil leaves, torn
- 6 ounces limeade concentrate (half the can, thawed)
- 18 ounces water
- 8-10 popsicle bags
In a medium container with a lid that seals, add strawberries, torn basil, tequila, limeade, and water. Cover tightly and shake for at least 30 seconds.
Using a slotted spoon, remove strawberries and basil from the container, and set into a separate bowl.
Taking a popsicle bag, add a spoonful of the strawberry mixture, then fill the rest of the way with the liquid mixture, being careful not to fill past the 'fill line' (the volume will expand when frozen). Repeat for the rest.
Place popsicles in a cup or a container to hold them upright (didn't want to risk leaking, but didn't have any issues either). Place into freezer and freeze at LEAST 24 hours.
Remove only when ready to eat, cut the top, and enjoy!
Be careful with the amount of alcohol you use in this recipe. If you add too much, the popsicles will not freeze the entire way through.
