Preparation: 10 minutes
Cook Time: 5 minutes
Makes: 8 x 80ml ice lollies 


  • 100g caster sugar
  • Small pack mint, leaves picked and torn
  • 6-7 limes juiced and 2 zested (you need 150ml lime juice)
  • 50ml white rum
  • 300ml soda water


Step 1: Add 100ml of water to a saucepan and bring to the boil. Next, remove from the heat and add the sugar, stirring until dissolved. Add the mint leaves then place back on the heat and allow to simmer for 5 minutes then remove and leave to stand for 30 minutes, this will allow the mint leaves to infuse. 

Step 2: Next, sieve the mint infused water into a jug making sure to squash the mint leaves to squeeze out all of the juices. Following this, add the rum, lime zest, 125ml lime juice and stir. Add soda water to bring the volume up to 600ml. The mixture should taste sharp but sweet. If needed, add the remaining 25ml of lime juice. 

Step 3: Pour the mixture into the lolly mould and freeze for 1 hour until the mixture is solid. Push the stick ¾ of the way into the lollies and return to the freezer for 6-8 hours to freeze completely. 

Step 4: Once frozen, remove from the mould by dipping the outside of the mould into hot water for approximately 10 seconds. The lollies can be kept wrapped individually in baking parchment in airtight bags and stored in the freezer for up to one week.
