Makes 6 servings

6 frozen, packaged, natural flavor and color lime ice pops (Trader Joe’s or Whole Foods)
1/4 cup 100% agave tequila, any brand or type
1 lime, juiced
1/4 cup kosher or medium-coarse sea salt, spread out in a small plate

1. Unwrap the ice pops and place, sticks up, in a deep bowl just wide and deep enough to hold them all.

2. Sprinkle the tequila and fresh lime juice over the ice pops.

To serve:

First, pass out napkins. Then pass the bowl around, followed immediately by the plate of salt. Each person selects an ice pop, then dips one edge into the salt (not too much.)

Cook’s treat: The lime-flavored tequila in the bottom of the bowl is delectable!
