Ingredients

  • 4 ½ cups sliced cantaloupe
  • 5 Tablespoons freshly squeezed lime juice
  • finely grated zest of 1 lime
  • ¼ cup + 1 Tablespoon granulated sugar
  • ¾ cup light rum (silver rum)

Instructions

  • Place sliced cantaloupe and lime juice in a blender. Pulse until smooth. Transfer to a large bowl and add lime zest, sugar, and light rum. Stir to combine. Let sit until sugar dissolves.
  • Pour into plastic ice pops bags. Seal bag and freeze for at least 6 hours until solid.*

Notes

It is best to freeze these in ice pop bags rather than popsicles molds because alcohol does not completely freeze. The amount of alcohol in these ice pops results in a slightly slushy pop.
