A Mojito is a Cuban cocktail made with mint and lime juice. It is also used to marinate meat such as pork and chicken as well. In addition to being refreshing and versatile, Mojito flavors go great with herb-infused ingredients too. The mint flavor and the lime complement the earthy flavor of cannabis.
If you enjoy the flavors of a fresh Mojito cocktail, you’ll love this frozen summertime twist.
A Mojito popsicle takes the delicious flavors of this popular drink with a LĒVO infused glycerin tincture additive in a fun, frozen form. These popsicles will be zesty and full of lime flavor. There is plenty of sugar in the recipe to guarantee that these popsicles will be sweet, too.
These Mojito Weed popsicles are sure to be the highlight of your next summer cookout. There is no alcohol in the popsicles. You can substitute a ¼ cup of rum for an equal part of the water in the recipe if you want the rum flavor in your treat. You will think you are in Miami for spring break!
The flavor of these Mojito Weed Popsicles can’t be beat. The fresh mint is a special addition, reminiscent of the cocktail beverage. If you make this recipe with rum, try using a light rum that won’t mask the flavors of the other ingredients. However, you can make it with dark rum if you are looking for a more robust flavor.
Make sure you know the strength of your tincture before adding it to the popsicle mix. Tinctures can vary in strength. If you haven’t tried your tincture yet, just put one dropper in the popsicle mixture. It’s important to test the dosage and potency of the tincture before trying the treats yourself or offering infused edibles to friends. Take your time.
Mojito Weed Popsicles Recipe
- 1 cup granulated sugar
- 2 cups water
- 20 fresh mint leaves
- 1/2 cup lime juice (about 5-6 limes)
- 3 tbsps cannabis-infused glycerin tincture
- 5 tbsps club soda
- Combine the sugar and water in a small saucepan. Bring to a boil over medium heat and let boil until the sugar is completely dissolved.
- Remove from heat and stir in the mint leaves. Let cool until the mixture reaches room temperature.
- Strain the mint leaves into a large measuring glass with a spout. Discard the mint.
- Stir in the lime juice and club soda.
- Pour the mixture into the popsicle molds ¾ of the way to the top. If you are using a mold that lays flat, lay those optional fan leaves (if using) across the surface. They will float up, so just adjust them a bit and add more popsicle syrup or club soda.
- Add your desired amount of cannabis tincture to each filled popsicle mold.
- Place the molds in the freezer for 4+ hours.
The Mojito Weed Pops are just the refreshing treat you need for a hot day. The mint and lime flavor go well together and make a great pairing with rum too.
Note: If you make the popsicles with rum, then the popsicles will not be frozen solid. The frozen texture will be slightly different if you include the additional alcohol. The popsicle will be easier to bite into but still frozen enough to hold on to the popsicle stick- so maybe you could just call that version Mojito Slushies?
Try using the mint fan leaves on the bottom of the popsicle to give a colorful treat. If you want more contrast and mint flavor in the popsicles, you could leave the mint leaves in the mixture instead of straining them out.
However you decide to customize your Mojito Weed Popsicles, the end result will sure to be a refreshing, fun hit that’s requested again and again. And when you’re ready to take a photo, be sure to share what you’ve made with @LEVO_Oil and be sure to tag it as #LEVOmade.
