  1. To make the fresh watermelon juice, puree 3 to 4 cups of watermelon chunks in a blender or food processor. Pour through a fine-mesh sieve and press with a spoon to release all the juice. Should yield about 2 cups.
  2. Combine the sugar and 1 cup of watermelon juice in a saucepan over medium heat. Bring to a simmer, whisking so the sugar dissolves. Simmer for 1 to 2 minutes, then turn off the heat.
  3. Stir in the remaining watermelon juice, frozen limeade, tequila, and Grand Marnier.
  4. Fill each dixie cup with a watermelon mixture. Freeze for 2-3 hours.
  5. Remove from freezer and place one lime slice on a popsicle stick and insert into the half-frozen popsicle. Freeze for another 3 hours.
  6. Gently remove from cup, sprinkle with salt, serve Watermelon Margarita Popsicles and enjoy!
