Have you ever started off making something and it ended up being a total disaster? Well, this was that for me.
My plan was to make some Blueberry Grapefruit Mojito Popsicles but I ended up leaving them in the mold for too long or it did not freeze well or something like that and the popsicles all broke as I was trying to take them out of the mold. I was almost about to give up and throw the whole thing away. I know!
How can anyone do that? Throw away something boozey and yummy? But I was mad. Mad at the recipe. Mad at myself for not getting it right. Mad at the popsicle mold for messing it up for me.
And then I took a little bite of it and oh my!! It was bitter, sweet, alcoholic all at the same time. Such a wonderful burst of flavors and I knew I had to do something with it.
I was just gonna thaw it and drink it up as a mojito. Then I decided to scrape it off the popsicle stick and crush the ones trapped in the mold and make a slushie out of it. It was way better than the mojito drink I would have otherwise had. The little crunch and the icy cold feeling was something that just enhanced the taste of it.
Here is how you make it!
- white rum
- agave nectar
- fresh blueberries
- mint leaves
Mix all the ingredients together. Pour into a freezer safe bowl and freeze for 6-8 hours. Remove from freezer and scrape the frozen mojito into serving glasses. Serve immediately.
You can make a frozen mojito instead, using ice cubes instead of water and freezing the grapefruit juice and blending them in a blender.
