What cools you off more during the hot summer months, popsicles or an ice cold cocktail? I’m a huge fan of both, so why not combine these two delectables into one awesome frozen, grown-up treat? Here’s a compilation of frozen treats I’ve discovered after scouring the web.
I’ll definitely be making some of these. If you have any you’d like to share, please let me know, and if you try any of these let us know how good they are by leaving a comment. Cheers!
This first recipe comes courtesy of Erin Cooks. It makes 24 two-ounce ice cube-tray pops, six 8-ounce pops, or eight 6-ounce pops.
- 1 1/2 cups fresh lime juice
- 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.
