Peach Basil Margaritas & Poptails

We love us some good Margaritas anytime of the year, but it is summertime that makes sipping on frozen margaritas ALL the more fun.  We are super into peaches lately, I guess it is because every grocery store or farmers market we step into they are EVERYWHERE (not complaining one bit though!).  So, we decided what better than a peach margarita?  Also, one of our favorite summertime afternoon snacks by the pool is a slice of peach with a leaf of basil on top, wrapped in a thin slice of proscuitto.  We certainly weren’t going to put proscuitto in a margarita, HA!, so we just left that part out and put some basil in ours to give it that fresh, gourmet flavor! So go park it by the pool this weekend and sip on one of these delectable treats!  Happy National Tequila Day, everyone.  Sit back, relax, and ENJOY!

Ingredients (makes 10-12 popsicles or a Pitcher of Frozen Margaritas):

  • 5 cups frozen, sliced peaches
  • 3/4 cup – 1 cup silver tequila (or use coconut water for non-alcoholic)
  • 1/4 cup fresh lime juice
  • 1 cup Peach Nectar (Found in Juice section)
  • 7 large leaves of basil, loosely chopped
  • 3 tbsp. raw honey

Method:  Combine all ingredients in a blender.  Blend on high until smooth (add more peach nectar if you want them thinner).  Either serve immediately for a frozen margarita or pour mixture into Popsicle molds and freeze in the freezer for at least 4 hours, or until frozen, for a boozy popsicle by the pool to cool you off!
