"As hard as it might be to believe, apparently we’re finally in for some sunshine! Yes, it’s been a very long time coming and we’re all impatiently waiting for warmer temperatures and time spent outside. Not only that, I’m sure that many of us can’t wait for ice cream season to finally begin! I mean, who really wants to still be drinking hot chocolate in May??? And if you think that ice cream and popsicles are just for kids, well, think again. When it comes to summer parties, you will need some grown up treats along the kids’ ones and this is where these fab mojito popsicles come in. Their fresh taste is perfect for a hot day and a small dash of white rum makes these popsicles a totally respectable treat for adults. The only drawback? You will probably need to make them the day before to give them enough time in the freezer to set – alternatively, you can of course get up at 4am to make them…"
