Cocktail Recipe du Jour: Citrus Mojito Popsicles

Posted on June 25, 2014 by Lazyjack Press | 0 Comments

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!

Cheers!

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

Ice

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.
