2 1/2 c water
1 c sugar
20 mint leaves

Heat sugar and water in a small saucepan and bring to a boil. Remove from heat and stir in the m int. Steep the liquid until it cools. Once liquid is cool, strain and combine the mint syrup, lime and rum. Then pour into molds. I placed a few mint leaves in the mold first to give a special touch to the look of the popsicle. Place filled molds in the freezer for 2 hours.

Next, stir together the club soda, lime juice gin and syrup. I added a few raspberries and mint leaves to the mold first. Finally pour into molds and place in the freezer at least 2 hours
Try them all because they are too good not to. If I had to pick a favorite, mine would be the raspberry mint. They are all refreshing and sure to bring a smile. You can also leave out the alcohol for the littles but be sure to mark the difference.
