Cocktail Recipe du Jour: Citrus Mojito Popsicles

Posted on June 25, 2014 by Lazyjack Press

Summer has officially started! Here at Lazyjack Press, we are definitely trying to savor every last moment. We're loving the rooftop happy hours, concerts in the park, and drinking a cold one (or ten) on the beach.

I am a huge fan of the Skinny Taste blog (you should check it out) and saw a recipe for frozen mojito popsicles. Unfortunately, her recipe didn't include rum since she was making them for her toddler. I adapted the recipe so we can add something different, light, and refreshing to the cocktail repertoire so that we really can enjoy all the summer has to offer! Bonus: This recipe serves 8!


Here's What You'll Need:

1 1/4 cups of orange juice (really try to do fresh squeezed if at all possible)

8 teaspoons of your favorite sweetener although I think 2 Splenda packets is sufficient

3 tbsp lime juice

3 tbsp lemon juice 

3/4 cup of water

10 fresh mint leaves 

8 fresh basil leaves 

8 shots of rum of your choice


Optional: adding strawberries of pineapple or another favorite fruit

What To Do:

Add all ingredients to a blender and blend until smooth.

Pour about 1/3 of a cup of the mixture into a popsicle mold if you have it. Otherwise, pour the mixture into small dixie cups and place in the freezer. After about an hour, add a popsicle stick to the almost solidified mixture.
