Blow Pops, Tootsie Pops, Dum Dums, those long twirly unicorn horn-looking ones. There are so many different kinds of lollipops that take us back to sitting on the curb with our best friends, sharing a hard-candy-on-a-stick. Our faces and hands getting sticky and our tongues changing colors. Those were the days, right?
Who says the days of licking a lollipop have to be over? Our tastes may have changed over the years and we now recognize that Blow Pops have literally the worst gum ever in the center. But even as adults we should be able to indulge in a little throwback lollipop licking fun! We think you should try your hand at making tequila lollipops. And we don’t mean the ones with the dead worm in the middle. Gross.
This recipe for tequila lollipops is the boozy adult party favor you’ve been waiting for. No need to count the licks to the center either. The fun is in every single lick as you get a slight sugary sweet buzz from the tequila lollipops. The best part is that the total prep time for the tequila lollipops is about 45 minutes.
