Cucumber Margarita Popsicle

Matthew Kelly / Supercall

Citysticks founder Justin Harter has perfected the boozy popsicle, so we asked him for his expert advice on how to make a refreshing Cucumber Margarita version. “For this popsicle, I wanted to showcase how something vegetal can provide a strong base and a more interesting flavor to your run-of-the-mill Margarita,” Harter says. This cooling treat is absolute perfection. It’s sweet, vegetal and tart with just the right amount of booze to relax you on a hot summer’s day. “It's a big punch of flavor in your mouth, which I find exciting.” We agree.
