Mango Mojito

Mango Mojito

The sun is out, the weather is warm and it’s officially the start to a great spring season. I love breaking out the bright, refreshing cocktails as soon as the weather gets warm. After feeling like I’ve been living in a cave, hibernating from the bitter cold temperatures, this mango mojito is a breath of fresh air. The mango and mint work together so well, giving you just the right balance of sweet and refreshing flavors.

It's beginning to look a lot like winter! The temperatures are dropping, the snow is starting to fall, and it's about time to start snuggling up under blankets next to a roaring fire every night. Nothing goes better with a snuggly night in than a giant mug of warm hot chocolate, spiked with a little booze of course. :)

Mojitos are a timeless summer cocktail in my book. The fresh minty flavor with a burst of lime juice makes mojitos a refreshing way to celebrate the end of a long day at the office. As we get further into August, the temperatures start to spike to all-time highs before the relief of the fall season sets in. With these high temperatures, the best solution for a cold cocktail is not to pack in the ice. It’s to turn it into a popsicle - mojito popsicles to be precise!

I’m sure you’ve caught our other cocktail popsicles this summer (piña colada and strawberry daiquiri!), and the mojito popsicles are yet another stroke of pure thirst-quenching genius. The mint simple syrup preserves that minty flavor you need to pair with the fresh lime juice and zest. You’ll find yourself saying “ahhhhhh” after every bite!

In a medium bowl that is easy to pour out of, combine lime juice, lime zest and rum. Strain the mint simple syrup into the bowl through a fine mesh strainer. Cool completely before pouring into the popsicle molds. Freeze for 1 hour. Add the popsicle sticks and continue to freeze until solid, approximately 6 to 8 hours.
