Step 1: Cut
After slicing your watermelon in half, cut the fruit away from your body and scoop out the chunks.

In a large bowl, mix 1 cup hot water, and 2/3 sugar until sugar is dissolved. Add simply syrup to bowl of watermelon chunks.
Step 3: Add Tequila & Lime
Using Don Julio Tequila, pour alcohol into your mixture and add in the juices from your squeezes limes. Add more water to dilute the drink if necessary, and go easy on the tequila – too much and the pops won’t freeze!
Step 4: Make Your Popsicle
Pour your watermelon margarita into plastic dixie cups, slightly below halfway mark. Add a pinch of chopped mint leaves for garnish and refreshment! Cover the top of the plastic cup with tin foil, and push the popsicle stick through the aluminum.
