    6 Servings

Ingredients

First Layer:
  • 4 ounces Orange Juice, freshly squeezed or pulp-free store-bought
  • 1 tablespoon Simple Syrup
  • 1 tablespoon Tequila
  • 1/2 teaspoon Orange Blossom Water
Second Layer:
  • 4 ounces Orange Juice, freshly squeezed or pulp-free store-bought
  • 1 tablespoon Simple Syrup
  • 1 tablespoon Tequila
  • 1/2 teaspoon Pomegranate Juice
  • 1/2 teaspoon Grenadine Syrup
Third Layer:
  • 1/4 cup Pomegranate Juice, plus 3 tablespoons
  • 2 tablespoons Grenadine Syrup
  • 1 tablespoon Tequila

Directions

  1. Stir together the ingredients for each layer separately. Cover and place the 2nd and 3rd layer mixtures in the fridge for now.
  2. Divide the 1st layer evenly between 6 (2.5 ounce) or 5 (3 ounce) popsicle molds. Set on a level surface in the freezer for 45-60 minutes.
  3. Remove from freezer and slowly pour in the second layer. Freeze for 30 minutes, then poke wooden popsicle sticks through the center, and freeze for another 30 minutes.
  4. Remove from freezer and slowly pour in the 3rd layer. Return to freezer and freeze until solid, 4-6 hours.

Notes

  • Some popsicle molds come with "built-in" plastic sticks. I prefer using wooden popsicle sticks, so I store those "extra" plastic sticks in a container (in case I ever want to give the complete mold away).
  • To hold the wooden sticks steady in the center of the ice pops, cover the mold with a sheet of plastic wrap (or foil) that is pulled taut across the top and secured with a rubber band. Use a small, thin knife (like a paring knife) to cut a thin slit centered over each opening. Don't make it bigger than the popsicle stick itself, or it won't hold it steady. Slide the sticks through the openings and into a popsicle that is about half-set; freeze until solid.
  • If you're making layered ice pops, add the plastic and slide the stick in once the molds are about 2/3 of the way full. Freeze for a while longer and then continue with your layering.
