Frozen Melon-Margarita Pops

These frozen melon-margarita pops are tangy hand-held treats that make you feel grown-up and kidlike at the same time. Dip juicy pieces of melons in margarita mix, perch on wooden sticks, and freeze until icy. For a zingy combo of cool and hot, nibble peppery nasturtiums between bites.
