We’re calling it: the mojito is the cocktail of the summer.

There’s something about the combination of sharp lime and cool mint that screams long, lazy, sunny days like no other.

And it’s just as good in lollipop form. Plus, you can’t knock it over after trying to balance it on the lawn! Pull these out of the freezer at the end of a barbecue and we guarantee smiles all round.

(I’ve made an alcohol-free raspberry-and-lemonade version too – perfect for littles ones and designated drivers!)

Makes 10-15 lollipops with some mixture left over for ‘quality-control purposes’
