You could have your regular cocktail, or you could spike a few wedges of watermelon with tequila and freeze them into boozy fruit pops. We’re going with the latter, all summer long!

Why This Upgrade Makes Watermelon More Fun

This is like a three-for-one deal, with a slice of watermelon, a cocktail (okay, it’s really a shot), and a Popsicle all in the same package. It’s cool, it’s refreshing, and let’s be honest, it’s so much more fun than sipping on a frozen drink.

How To Do It

Soak each watermelon slice in tequila (you be the judge of how much to use!), insert a wooden popsicle stick into the bottom, then freeze on a lined baking sheet until frozen (at least four hours).
