Those looking for a cocktail recipe to kick up their next summer party should try out this citrus basil mojito pops recipe that turns the conventional mojito cocktail into a icy treat.

These popsicles delicately balance the zesty taste of lemons, limes and oranges with the aromatic taste of fresh herbs such as basil and mint. Give the fresh lemons, limes and oranges are squeeze to extract all the juice. Add a splash of water to tone down the flavor profile if it seems a bit too acidic for you. Then add several mint and basil leaves along with a splash of rum. Freeze the liquid in popsicle molds and after a couple hours you can serve them up to your guests for as a fun summer dessert.
