Mojito Popsicles

Oh my goodness, I tweeted about making these and got a lot of response. Apparently booze + popsicles is a very popular idea, and that shouldn’t be a big surprise. After all, if you’re in the northern hemisphere odds are that it’s hot where you are. Doesn’t sitting by the pool with a cocktail sound good? Freeze that drink and doesn’t it sound great?! (Just remember to stay hydrated.)

These refreshing popsicles are filled with the classic mojito ingredients: mint, rum, lime, sugar and club soda. I was curious to see how the carbonation in the club soda would freeze, but I couldn’t really tell a difference in the popsicles. You could probably use plain water instead and I bet it would be similar. Enjoy by the pool for optimal results!

 

Recipe:

Mojito Popsicles

  • 12 mint leaves
  • 2 limes
  • 3-5 oz rum (depending on how strong you want them)*
  • 7-10 T simple syrup (to taste)
  • 2 C club soda

In a glass, muddle mint leaves (if you don’t have a muddler, mash with the handle of a wooden spoon, breaking them up into little pieces). Juice the limes and add to mint. Pour into a bowl or pitcher and add rum and simple syrup to taste. Add club soda on top of everything and slowly stir to combine. Pour into popsicle molds and freeze for several hours.

*Of course, you can also omit the rum and make virgin mojito popsicles

    Zomg! You have the same rocket popsicle molds we do!! I love those things!

    I made kombucha popsicles earlier this week and then it got too cool to really eat them. Or maybe I just need to get home earlier. I am disappointed that the carbonation doesn’t translate!

    I think a mojito is one of the most refreshing drinks to begin with – but in popsicle form!? Wow! That’s a winner!
