Signature Cocktail Friday ~ Mango Mojito Popsicle

Hot, Hot Hot the thermometer is soaring to all new highs.

This is a great weekend to cool off with a Signature Popsicle Idea.

This delicious recipe and photo are from Mango World Magazine

Makes 6

1 1/2 cups chopped mango (2 mangoes)
1 ounce rum (I used Bacardi Superior White)
1 lime, juiced
2 tablespoons sugar
2 teaspoons chopped mint
1/2 cup water
Put mangoes, rum, lime juice and sugar into a blender. Run until mixture is completely smooth. (Taste to check sweetness. Add more sugar if desired.) Add mint and water. Pulse until water is just blended into mixture and you can still see flecks of mint.
Pour into popsicle molds and place popsicle sticks into the middle of each. Freeze. Once frozen through, run molds under warm water to release.
