Tequila Sunrise Freezer Pops

Tequila Sunrise Freezer Pops

Ingredients

  • 10 stemless maraschino cherries
  • 27.5 fl. oz. orange juice
  • 5 fl. oz. blanco or silver tequila
  • 1 1/4 teaspoons Nielsen-Massey Pure Orange Extract
  • 2 1/2 tablespoons grenadine
  • 10, 3-ounce freezer pop bags

Directions

Add a maraschino cherry to each freezer pop bag and shake the bag to migrate the cherry to the very bottom.

Place a freezer pop bag in a clean tall drinking glass. In a measuring cup combine the orange juice, tequila and Nielsen-Massey Pure Orange Extract and stir together. Place a funnel into the top of the freezer pop bag and pour the liquid into the bag. The liquid should reach the fill line on the bag but no higher. Stir the mixture between filling each freezer pop bag (to assure even distribution of the tequila for better freezing).

Pour 3/4 teaspoon grenadine through the funnel into the liquid. It will create a color gradient with more red toward the bottom. Note: if desired, the grenadine may be added to the liquid mixture. However, the freezer pops will not have the same coloration.

Freeze the freezer pop upright in the freezer until fully frozen (this will retain the color and prevent seepage).

To eat: cut the top of the freezer pop bag just below the zipper seal and serve.
