Raspberry & Rum Mojito Popsicles You Will Want To Eat On A Hot Summer Day

During my extensive scientific research into the field of delicious alcohol filled popsicle creations I came across mojito popsicles early on. However I didn't want to write about them because they only appear delicious on paper (paper makes everything more delicious) But can you imagine eating a popsicle then encountering an entire wad of mint leaves? Or how about when you get to that lime chunk. It looks cool and all but who wants to chew on a goddamn lime? But Mojitos are so delicious that I had to revisit the idea and that's when I was lucky enough to find these little treasures from WonkyWonderful.

These are the wonderful Raspberry Mojito Popsicles (hold the lime slices please) and they're a much better version of the original. Raspberries are delicious and as opposed to mint leaves, it's something you'd actually look forward to encountering mid-bite. Plus if you're feeling extra adventurous you can always let the raspberries soak up a bit of extra rum before tossing them into the molds.

Here's what you'll need to make 'em:

  • 1/2 cup of vanilla yogurt
  • 1/2 cup of rum cream or Baileys if you prefer.
  • sugar
  • 1 lime's worth of juice
  • fine chopped mint
  • raspberries

Take your raspberries and soak them in white rum for 10 minutes. Mix the yogurt, rum cream, 2 spoons of sugar and the lime juice. add rum soaked raspberries and chopped mint directly in the mold and then pour in your rum yogurt mix. Freeze for a half hour, add your Popsicle sticks then freeze for another 4-5 hours.

2021 Was Montreal's Hottest Year On Record

Here's what's in store for the first few months of 2022.

It's official — 2021 was the hottest year on record for Montreal, according to Environment Canada. It beat out the previous hottest years, 1998 and 2012, by a mean few hundredths of a degree.

This rise in temperature in Montreal is attributed to new weather patterns, causing scorching temperatures in June, August, September and October. "August and October were record-breaking months," said Environment Canada spokesperson Simon Legault.

Of all the things you'd expect to find as you walk along Boulevard Saint-Laurent, a 7-foot-tall, gin-inspired hedge maze probably isn't one of them. But from August 6 to 8, Bombay Sapphire is building a labyrinth full of surprises in the Old Port — and, yes, that does include free gin samples for Quebecers aged 18 and up.

A Bombay spokesperson described the maze as a "large-scale [...] whimsical oasis" with walls that "cloak the discoverable experiences within."
