How to make your own Tequila Lollipops

Is there anything better than booze on a stick? Booze in a cup maybe, but no one is saying you can’t have both!

These homemade tequila lollipops have the perfect hint of tequila blended with the caramel sweetness of the candy. They aren’t too overwhelming, but not too subtle either.


  • 1/4 cup plus 1 tbsp tequila
  • 2 tbsp cold water
  • 3/4 cup sugar
  • 3 tbsp golden syrup (can sub corn syrup)
  • dash of salt


  1. Prepare a baking pan with a silicone mat, and a handful of lollipop sticks. Set aside. (Alt: you can use a lollipop mold).
  2. In a medium pot, combine the tequila, water, sugar, syrup, and salt. Bring to a boil over medium heat, stirring to dissolve all the sugar and salt.
