If pressed for an answer, strawberries would be my favorite fruit, and I'd almost always choose a boozy beverage made with strawberry over, well...anything else. I'm also a huge tequila lover, which makes these pops a no brainer. Studded with lime slices and strawberries, these pops are the most refreshing thing ever on a hot sunny day. You know, this is one of those times when being a grownup is really awesome.

Ingredients

Directions

Special equipment: 10 ice-pop molds

To make the fresh strawberry puree, puree the strawberries in a blender or food processor with a few tablespoons of water. Pour through a fine-mesh sieve and press with a spoon to release all the juice.

Combine the sugar and 1 cup of the strawberry puree in a saucepan over medium heat. Bring to a simmer, whisking so the sugar dissolves. Simmer for 1 to 2 minutes, then turn off the heat. Stir in the fruit punch, lime juice, tequila and Grand Marnier.

Fill each ice-pop mold with a lime slice. Pour the strawberry mixture over top. Freeze according to your ice-pop maker's directions, for at least 4 to 6 hours. Serve with a sprinkle of sea salt.
