Ingredients per individual freezer pop:

  • 1 Maraschio Cherry stemless
  • 2 3/4 ounces Orange Juice pulp-free
  • 1/2 ounce Blanco or Silver Tequila
  • 1/8 teaspoon Orange Extract I used Nielsen-Massey Pure Orange Extract
  • 3/4 teaspoon Grenadine
  • 1 Freezer Pop bag

Ingredients for a batch of 10 freezer pops:


Instructions for making individual freezer pops (not a batch):

  • Add the maraschino cherry to the freezer pop bag and shake the bag to migrate the cherry to the very bottom.
  • Place the freezer bag in a clean tall drinking glass.
  • In a measuring cup combine the orange juice, tequila and Orange Extract and stir together.
  • Place a funnel into the top of the freezer pop bag and pour the liquid into the bag. NOTE: The liquid should reach the 'fill line' on the bag but no higher.
  • Pour the grenadine through the funnel into the liquid. It will create a color gradient with redder toward the bottom.  
  • Freeze the freezer pop upright in the freezer until fully frozen.
  • To eat: cut the top of the freezer pop bag just below the zipper seal and serve.

To make a batch of 10 freezer pops:

  • Follow instruction steps 1 and 2 above.
  • Mix the full batch of orange juice, tequila and orange extract in a large measuring up or bowl.
  • Fill the bags in the same method as step 4 above, stirring the mixture between each pouring.
  • Adding the grenadine: to achieve the color gradient the grenadine should be measured and poured individually per freezer pop. If preferred it may be mixed into the orange juice, tequila, extract in batch step 2 and poured into the freezer pop bags.
  • Freeze upright until frozen to retain color gradient and prevent seepage.
