Pink Mojito Zoku Pops
Ice pops may bring out the kid in you, but you’ll feel sophisticated while savoring this cocktail-inspired pop. Surprisingly, even grapefruit skeptics are won over by this recipe.
- 2/3 cup water
- 3 Tbs. sugar
- 7 fresh mint leaves
- 1 cup plus 2 Tbs. pure pink grapefruit juice (store-bought or about 2 grapefruits, juiced)
To make the mint syrup, in a small saucepan over medium-low heat, combine the water, sugar and mint leaves. Bring to a simmer, cover, reduce the heat to low and continue to simmer for about 5 minutes. Remove from the heat. Using a fine-mesh sieve, strain the mixture into a bowl. Refrigerate until cool.
To make the pop base, stir together the cooled mint syrup and the grapefruit juice.
To assemble the pops, insert sticks into the pop maker molds and pour in the pop base until you reach the fill line. Let freeze completely, then remove the pops with the Super Tool and enjoy. Repeat to make the remaining pops. Makes 6 pops.
Pop Tip: When juicing grapefruit, remove as much of the rind and the inner white pith as possible to prevent bitter-tasting juice.
