CoAqua rum popsicles

Posted by Grier G on


Mojito-coconut water Popsicles There’s a reason mojitos are so popular in the summertime. Lime, mint, rum and sugar, when balanced, is a pretty perfect warm weather combination. And everyone familiar with this cocktail also knows how easily these go down…the only thing more refreshing than a mojito is ... a mojito popsicle made with CoAqua. A truly winning combination.

It's easy to give props to the Cabochon -  it's located on the very short (walkable) Sukhumvit, Soi 45 (street), it's next to our friend's excellent restaurant Quince but mostly because it's unique, it's perfectly appointed,...
