- 1 1/2 cups sugar
- 2 1/4 cups freshly squeezed lemon juice (about 9 lemons)

Have ready 50 1-ounce ice-pop molds and wooden craft sticks. Prepare ice bath. In small pan, boil sugar and 1 1/2 cups water over medium-high heat. Stirring often, cook until sugar dissolves, about 10 minutes. Transfer to bowl; place in ice bath. Stir often, until chilled.
In large bowl, mix sugar syrup, lemon juice, and liqueur with 3/4 cup water. Pour into molds. Freeze halfway, 1 to 2 hours. Add sticks. Freeze completely.
