Strawberry Margarita Quicksicles

In honor of Pampered Chef’s Help Whip Cancer campaign this month, I wrote this *pink* recipe to share with my family and friends!

Who doesn’t like a strawberry margarita and today it’s HOT HOT HOT here so it’s the perfect refresher! If you’re serving this to kids, please omit the tequila and substitute with water.

When the word “margarita” is used by itself, it typically refers to the classic lime or lemon juice margarita, but when other juices are used, the fruits are typically added as adjectives in the name with lime juice or lemon juice added to give it a characteristic margarita flavor. This one includes the lime flavor.

Did you know the first margaritas were made with brandy instead of tequila? (I know that because Wikipedia told me!) They were remade with tequila instead of brandy, which became popular during prohibition as people drifted south of the border for alcohol.  It also says that the word “margarita” is spanish for daisy.  So when you go to Mexico and order a margarita, do they give you a flower?
