Daiquiri Lime Ice Pops Recipe

Nothing beats the cool and refreshing taste of citrus drinks or ice-cold treats on a hot summer day. When the weather justifies the need for tank tops, shorts, and flip-flops, I start making my favorite ice pops. Inspired by Baskin-Robbins' Daquiri Ice sorbet, these pops are a fun alternative for adult summertime guests.

Notes

Special Equipment: ice-pop molds, wooden pop sticks.

Ingredients

  • 1  Cup  granulated sugar
  • 1/2  Cup  fresh lime juice
  • 2  Tablespoons  rum
  • 1-2  drops greens food coloring

Directions

In a medium saucepan over medium-low heat, bring the sugar, lime juice, and 1 1/2 cups water to a simmering boil. Stir until the sugar dissolves. Remove the pan from the heat and stir in the rum and food coloring. Cool the mixture, then pour it into the ice-pop molds.

Cover the opening of each mold with a small piece of foil, and insert a pop stick halfway into the mold. Freeze overnight.

To release a pop from the mold, carefully hold the pop in one hand while running warm water over the mold without getting water into the opening. With the other hand, gently pull the stick away from the mold until the ice pop releases.

Daiquiri Shopping Tip

Buy your booze in bulk – transfer what you need into smaller bottles to stock your bar – you’ll save money and have enough leftover for your next party.

Daiquiri Cooking Tip

Add another layer of flavor to your cocktails by making your own simple syrup – combine equal parts sugar and water with whatever aromatics you like – fresh herbs, whole spices, citrus, or chile peppers – heat to dissolve sugar and strain before using.
