  • Pour the lime juice, club soda, and 1 cup water into a pitcher and let sit for 5 minutes.
  • Add the mint, lemon and lime wedges, sugar, and rum to the pitcher.
  • Mash all of the ingredients together with a muddler or a wooden spoon.
  • Pour into pop molds, being sure to distribute the fruits and mint evenly among the molds.

Notes

Adapted from Krystina Castella's new book: Pops! Icy Treats for Everyone published by Quirk Books.

Makes 24 two-ounce ice cube-tray pops, six 8-ounce pops, or eight 6-ounce pops (Note: Or be like me and make six popsicles and three nice sized mojitos to share while you're waiting for the pops to freeze).
