Sangrita Paletas (Spiced Tomato-Tequila Ice Pops) for #CincoDeMayo
These pops are not for everybody. And they're definitely not for kids. The tequila is loud and proud, mixed right in there with the somewhat spicy tomato chaser mixer that is popular in Mexico, Sangrita. I don't think this is something that you'll love unless you love Sangrita, or similar combinations like a Bloody Mary, a Bloody Maria, or maybe a Michelada. You have to be a fan of tomato, plain and simple, to appreciate these paletas.
Cajeta, Hibiscus w/ Mango, Mango & Chile, Spicy Pineapple or Creamy Coconut, Fresa (Strawberry) or another fruity ice pop...or maybe another tequila-infused paleta like these Sour Cream, Cherry, and Tequila Pops. Or go with these beautiful bandera-looking Cinco de Mayo Paletas. Just be sure to label the pops that have the alcohol in them, because little hands can't resist popsicles.
Enjoy your fiesta!
