These watermelon margarita popsicles with no added sugar are naturally sweet, refreshing, and perfect on a hot summer day!

These adult ice pops have only four ingredients – watermelon, silver tequila, lime juice, and salt.

I love the way these popsicles make a natural gradient when you freeze them. I sometimes buy fresh watermelon juice, and you always have to shake it because the pink bits separate from the water. It has a really pretty effect in popsicles!

Watermelon is my #1 favorite fruit. Did you know that when you’re selecting a watermelon, you should look for a big yellow spot? The presence of one indicates it’s ripe, and this method generally doesn’t fail me.

I went a little gung-ho and bought an 11 pound watermelon. Let’s just say that I didn’t even need half for this recipe. That’s ok… I have watermelon for days, and I’m fine with that!

I used to looove margaritas, but in my old age I’ve developed pretty bad heartburn when I go near them.

I was actually able to tolerate these… perhaps it’s because there’s only one lime in the whole batch.

Obviously I’m not the first or last person to make watermelon margaritas, but I thought that in popsicle form they could be pretty enjoyable.

I made boozy popsicles last summer too, if you like that sorta thing!

These popsicles are tested and approved by my mom, so you know they’re good. 😉

Love fruity margaritas? Try my pomegranate margaritas.

Watermelon Margarita Popsicles (No Sugar Added)

Boozy watermelon margarita popsicles with no added sugar.
Prep: 15 minutes
Freeze time:: 6 hours
Total: 6 hours 15 minutes
Servings: 10 (3 oz.) popsicles


  • 1 small (about 5-6 pounds) watermelon cut into pieces
  • Juice of 1 lime
  • 4 ounces silver tequila
  • 1/4 tsp (or to taste) sea salt 


  • Cut the watermelon into smallish pieces (discard rind) and place them in your blender. Blend until pulverized.
  • Add the lime juice, tequila, and salt to the blender. Mix.
  • Pour into the popsicle mold, being careful not to fill each cavity right to the top since it'll expand when you freeze it. Freeze for about 2-2.5 hours and insert the sticks at that point. Freeze for an additional 3-4 hours. 
  • To easily remove the popsicles from the mold, fill your sink with hot water and carefully dunk the mold into it for a few seconds. Popsicles should easily slide out. Transfer remaining popsicles to a large Ziploc bag to keep them fresh in the freezer. 


  • This is the awesome popsicle mold I used for this recipe!
  • You may have a bit left over depending on the size of melon and how much juice you can get out of it. That's ok, though, because when life gives you extra watermelon margaritas, life is good.
  • If you really don't want to add the extra salt, you don't need to, but I love salt-rimmed margarita glasses, and this brings some of that taste to the popsicles without going overboard. 
  • If your watermelon has a lot of black seeds, you could always strain it out, but in general, I don't think you need to strain watermelon juice.

    Crushing big-time on the natural sweetness of these yummy pops. As summer is fast approaching, I am crushing on anything cold and sweet. Once I read margarita, I pretty much am in love.
