Frozen Mojito Pops That Give Frosé a Run for Its Money

0

If Jell-o shots were the college you, these alcoholic ice pops are the #adulting you. Class things up by starting with a classic mojito recipe, swap in a few things to get it to healthyish status, pour the mixture into ice pop molds, and freeze.

We love cooling off with one these after a long day at the beach as a pre-happy hour treat. Or, when we want to go back to college us, we add them right into a cocktail (they’re like a floater and an ice cube in one!). If you don’t have ice pop molds on hand but want to make these ASAP, you can use an ice cube tray so they’re ready for cocktail time.

Step 1:​

Bring 2 cups water and 1/2 cup coconut sugar to a boil. Remove from heat then add in 15-20 whole mint leaves to the water. Give it a good stir and let steep for 20-30 minutes, until water is cool.

Step 2:

Transfer sugar water and mint to a bowl (we used one with a spout so it’s easier to pour, but you can also use a blender) and then add juice from 2 limes and 1/4 cup light or dark rum. Stir well.

Step 3:

Fill each mold with the liquid until they are completely full, keeping the mint leaves back with a spoon to avoid a mess. Once molds are filled, add 1-2 mint leaves to each one.

Step 4:

Pop the bottoms onto the molds to seal them and set in the freezer for at least 3 hours (overnight is preferable).

Step 5:

Enjoy your boozy pops however you’d like.
