Mojito Ice Pops

The classic Cuban cocktail is simply mint to be frozen

If mojitos have one flaw, it's that they're impossible to sip. How do you not down something that refreshing in five seconds? Luckily, you can't chug an ice pop, which is why we created a frozen version of the rum drink to make it last just a bit longer. And for true lovers of this Cuban cocktail: We suggest you drop one of these into an actual mojito, poptail-style.

A mint-infused simple syrup acts as the base here, with lime two ways and a double shot of rum. Since alcohol lowers the freezing point of water, these won't be as boozy as their drink relative—which just means it's OK to grab seconds.
