Creamy Margarita Popsicles

These popsicles really taste like popsicles, not just frozen liquid that’s almost impossible to enjoy. They’re creamy, they’re lime-y, they’re salty, and they’ve got tequila in them.

Ingredients

1¼ cup fresh lime juice (about 8 limes), plus 4 limes for stabilizing the popsicle sticks
1 (14oz) can of sweetened condensed milk
1 cup water
¼ cup tequila
2 tablespoons orange juice (optional)
Kosher salt or margarita salt
