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.

Using CoAqua as an ingredient in summer cocktails adds a subtle creaminess and coconut flavor, and the hydrating properties don't hurt either. So without further ado.

Coconut Mojito Popsicles
Ingredients

  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1/4 cup water
  • 3 cans CoAqua
  • 6 sprigs of fresh mint
  • 1/2 cup  lime juice
  • 1/4 cup premium white rum (or more)
  • 1 lime sliced into thin lime wheels

Method

Combine sugar and water in a saucepan over medium heat until sugar dissolves. Add mint and stir until boiling. Remove from heat, cover, and let stand 10-15 minutes.

Using fine mesh, strain syrup mixture into a jog or pitcher. Add lime juice, CoAqua and rum to strained syrup and stir. Once mixture is completely chilled, pour into popsicle molds, placing lime wheels in each mold, and freeze.

Of course for the kids you leave the rum out. Out of the ice-blocks I mean.
