watermelon mojito pops!

Comments

Can you believe that tomorrow will be June 1st!? I’m pretty darn excited and wanted to start it off right… with some watermelon mojito popsicles!! Yesterday we went to a BBQ/first birthday party and Zan brought some ingredients to make watermelon mojitos. They were enjoyed by many and as I was sipping mine, I thought of a great idea! A mojito popsicle! The problem is alcohol doesn’t freeze! Unless… you add just a little (2oz with every 3 cups juice) and it’s mixed with fruit! Tada!! : ) You can also make this recipe without alcohol too… it’s your choice. Also, you’ll be happy to know that I bought the popsicle tray and the skewers from the Dollar Store!! It came with a plastic red and blue top, but I took that off for a reason ; ) Read below for the how-to!! Have a wonderful week!

 

Mojito Popsicles
Ingredients (makes about 10 medium size popsicles)
3 1/2 cups cubed watermelon
Handful fresh mint leaves
3 Tablespoons Agave (or you can sweeten them with regular sugar)
1/2 lime
2 oz. light rum
1/2 cup club soda

Directions
In a large mixing bowl, muddle the watermelon and mint together until the watermelon is a juice consistency with some small chunks. Once it’s fully muddled, remove the muddled mint. Add the 3 tablespoons Agave, 2 ounces rum and squeeze the 1/2 lime into the watermelon juice. Pour half of the mixture into a cocktail shaker… unless you have a shaker large enough for all of the watermelon. Shake until combined and put into a separate bowl with a spout. Do the same with the other half of the juice. Add the club soda to the shaken juice and stir. Fill the popsicle tray up and add a skewer (cut to size) in the center. To garnish, place a small mint leaf in each of the popsicles… These will need to freeze overnight because of the rum. They also melt a little faster, so make sure you serve them with a napkin!
