Mojito popsicles

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!
