Hotter’n Hades

So hot, in fact, that I’m thinking about wearing this to all my meetings tomorrow.  It’s by Stella McCartney…  doesn’t that make it okay??  But seriously.  It’s 102 degrees in Columbus today.  It hasn’t been that hot here since 1999 – which was the year I graduated high school – which was like, when wholly mammoths and dinosaurs still roamed the earth.  If it’s gonna be this hot again tomorrow, then I’m making Mojito Popsicles…  and eating them (all) in the baby pool I’m about to drop $19 bones on at Wal-Mart and fill up in my backyard.  I suggest you do the same thing.

Havana Mojito Popsicles

Yields: 6 Popsicles
Prep: 15 minutes
Freeze: 8 hours

2 oz.            Bacardi Light Rum
3 oz.            Fresh Lime Juice
3 oz.            Simple Syrup*
2½ cups       Lemon lime soda    (sprite or sierra mist)
12               Fresh mint leaves
3 cups         Ice Cubes

Combine all ingredients into blender with ice.  Puree all ingredients until mixture is smooth and slushy.  Pour slushy mixture into Popsicle molds.  Add Popsicle sticks and freeze for 8 hours. Then, my suggestion would be to eat the whole batch, in the baby pool.  In Stella’s outfit.  And invite some fun people over.

  • #1: You could triple your annual sales goal in one day just by wearing that Stella McC. #2: If we don’t find a boat and fast, Moonshine & I will be toasting you with our Mojito popsicles from our very own instant pool this weekend. And if I can’t find an instant pool, I’m getting a galvanized watering trough. Fact.
