Picture of tequila sunrise popsicles

A while back Danger is my middle name found a list on Buzzfeed titled "23 Ice Pops to Get You Drunk" and suggested we make some. I could think of no reason why we shouldn't. :P

All of the popsicles were beautiful, but I was especially drawn to the tequila sunrise popsicles by Real Food by Dad. How pretty are those?! They just scream summer.

What follows is my version of tequila sunrise popsicles and my first ever professional video! I think both turned out very well - they really do taste just like the drink! :D

Step 1: Ingredients + tools

Picture of Ingredients + tools


  • 1 pound fresh/frozen pineapple
  • 2 cups pineapple juice
  • 1/2 cup tequila (original recipe called for 3/4 cup)
  • 1 tsp grenadine for each popsicle


  • blender
  • popsicle molds

This recipe makes loads of popsicles! (Or just can just drink the extra. I'm a genius. I just realized that.)

I used two molds: Norpro standard popsicle molds, and round popsicle molds from Zoku.

So how do you make a non-alcoholic version?

I would use Everclear instead

Where did you get the mold? I didn't see a link but I just skimmed... I want to do a coffee popsicle

That sounds good...maybe add some Tia Maria or Kahlua to the recipe....that'll start the day off nicely.

that does sound good

I've made similar popsicles to these a few times, I use a syringe to deposit the
grenadine about halfway down in the middle, this way you keep the
lighter coloured top end nice and pristine, but perhaps that's just my
OCD kicking in again LOL
