  • 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)


  • 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.*


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.
