Lime Ginger Mint Popsicles


 A few days ago I made lime ginger mint cooler and it was a big hit with the family.  My son requested me to make another batch so we could make popsicles out of it.  I can't argue with a great idea so I happily fulfilled his request.  These popsicles were fantastic and so refreshing. Now that the hot weather is officially here, we are looking forward to making many more popsicles and this one was a perfect flavor for our first batch.

1 cup of fresh lime juice
1 batch of  Ginger-Mint Simple Syrup: (see recipe below)
4 cups of water
1/2 tsp lime zest

Notes:  I added one batch of the simple syrup for a sweet/tart flavored cooler.  You can add more simple syrup to tailor it to your taste. 

Make the Ginger-Mint Simple Syrup and allow it to cool.  Squeeze lime juice.  Add water, lime juice and as much simple syrup as you wish to make sweet.  Put lime ginger mint drink into popsicle mold and freeze until set. Enjoy.

  Ginger-Mint Simple Syrup:

 To make 1 batch:
Boil 1 cup sugar, 1 cup water and 1 inch of sliced ginger.  Bring to a boil for 2-3.  Turn stove off and add 4-5 mint leaves.  Allow to steep and cool.
