How to Make Boozy Watermelon Pops
First, using a knife, cut a small slit in the watermelon rind of each wedge. This will help make inserting the popsicle stick easier. As you place a stick in each watermelon wedge, set them on a cookie sheet in a single layer and set aside. Next, add sugar and boiling water to a large mixing bowl. Stir until sugar is dissolved, then stir in the lime juice, tequila and triple sec.
Pour mixture over the watermelon wedges. Cover and freeze for 2-4 hours. Before serving, sprinkle margarita salt on the tips of each wedge. Serve on a large platter with lime wedges and additional salt.
