Mojito Pops


It is so hot today! Argh! I hate the heat, but these might just be a fun way to beat the heat.

Mojito Pops

Makes 24 two-ounce ice cube-tray pops, six 8-ounce pops, or eight 6-ounce pops (Note: Or make six popsicles and three nice sized mojitos to share while you’re waiting for the pops to freeze).

1 1/2 cups fresh lime juice (Note: I used 8 limes)
2 1/2 cups Club Soda
1/3 cup fresh mint leaves
1 lemon, peeled and cut into wedges
3 limes, peeled and cut into wedges
1 1/2 cups sugar
4 tablespoons light rum

Pour the lime juice, club soda, and 1 cup water into a pitcher and let sit for 5 minutes.

Add the mint, lemon and lime wedges, sugar, and rum to the pitcher. Mash all of the ingredients together with a muddler or a wooden spoon.

Pour into pop molds, being sure to distribute the fruits and mint evenly among the molds. Insert the sticks. Freeze for at least 12 hours. Remove from the freezer; let stand at room temperature for 5 minutes before removing the pops from the molds.


I haven't tried the recipe yet (and it is toooooooooooooo hot to go to the store today to get the ingredients), but it looks easy and tasty!

What a "cool" idea! Cooling off and getting a buzz at the same time. You are the ever ingenious one.

ana b. said...

Argghhhh I am such a lightweight that I can imagine chomping through 24 of these and suddenly wondering why I can't stand....

Ela said...

Oh so refreshing! Don't drink, do you think it would still work sans rum? Or would I need to add a substitute?

Chessa! said...

Gabbi said...

Yum! Must try... I made some recently from a recipe I saw in Bust and they weren't really good. Sadly disappointed in the taste but now I'm left with the craving for some good ones. Wonder where she got the pop molds from?

sealaura said...

these sound amazing especially if enjoying it right next to a pool. it is hot isn't it? and no marine layer or coastal breeze here in the land of red, pooh! I'm not sure if I have the courage to go the store either, I might just lick the screen instead.

Hanako66 said...

Bunny, THE PARIS HOUSE said...

On a lighter note...I can't wait to make these popsicles
