Mango Pico de Gallo and Margarita Popsicles!

Since Cinco De Mayo is this weekend... I thought I would share a combo for a fiesta!

Mango Pico de Gallo


1 c. small cubes of mango (about 1 medium to large mango)
1/2-1 large jalapeno (1/2 without seeds is a nice, mild-medium heat; go from there)
1/4 c. chopped cilantro
1/4 of a medium red onion, finely chopped
Juice of 1 lime
2 cloves garlic, minced
Kosher or sea salt to taste

mix ingredients. serve immediately

Margarita Popsicles


1/2 cup sugar
1 cup water
1 cup fresh squeezed lime juice (8-12 small limes, usually)
1/4 cup silver tequila
1/4 cup orange liqueur
12 3 oz disposable paper cups
12 wooden popsicle sticks or spoons

 Heat water and sugar in a small sauce pan until completely dissolved and the water is clear. Let cool.

Pour into a pitcher with lime juice, tequila, and orange liqueur.

Pour 2 1/2 ounces (5 Tbsp) of margarita into each cup.

Place cups into a baking dish and put the dish in the freezer.

After about 2 hours, start checking the popsicles. Once they're frozen enough to support the wooden stick, insert a stick into each popsicle, pushing 3/4 of the way into the popsicle.

Let freeze several more hours or until completely frozen (I let them freeze overnight)

To serve, peel the paper cup away from the popsicle, starting at the seam of the cup, and carefully remove the bottom.
Consume immediately.

Hope everyone has a great Thirsty Thursday! I will be spending my night at The Taste of Hartsville!
