Holiday Margarita with Pomegranate Popsicle


Did you know that boozy popsicles are also known as poptails? That makes me laugh.

This holiday margarita and boozy popsicle is a pleasing cocktail in both appearance and taste. This combination is a must-have during the holiday season!

I have been wanting to share these with you for so long! I thought of this idea during the summer and made them several times to get the recipe just right. They’re so much fun and definitely provide a ‘wow factor’ when you serve them.

Speaking of ‘wow factor’, I love pretty cocktails. If you’re a fan of them too, you’ve got to check out this Mary Pickford Cocktail and Italian Amaretto Margarita. Isn’t she pretty? It tastes amazing too!

Holiday Margarita with Pomegranate Popsicle


  1. First, you’ll need a shallow plate or bowl of water, lime juice, or lemon juice. Dip the rim of your glass into the liquid. Alternatively, you could cut a lime or lemon wedge and moisten the rim with it.
  2. Next, you want to evenly dip the rim of your cocktail glass into the sugar, salt, or whatever you’re riming the glass with. I have used chocolate and caramel to the rim on appropriate cocktails. You may want to use coconut or sprinkles, dependingly on what cocktail you’re serving. 
  3. Finally, mix your drink and pour it into your glass. Garnish as desired and serve.
