A simple recipe for refreshing, boozy Dark and Stormy popsicles.

Recipe Type: Dessert
Makes: 10 (2-ounce) popsicles
Author: Brooklyn Supper
Ingredients
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 4- inch knob of fresh ginger , peeled and thinly sliced
  • 1 12- ounce bottle of ginger beer
  • 1/2 cup dark rum
  • 1/4 cup freshly squeezed lime juice (about 2 limes)
  • 1 lime , very thinly sliced
Instructions
  1. Pour the ginger beer out in a large bowl and set aside. (The idea here is to let some of the carbonation fizz out of the popsicle so it doesn't overly expand while freezing.)
  2. To make the ginger simple syrup, combine the sugar, water, and ginger slices in a small saucepan over medium heat. Stir until sugar dissolves, then set aside to steep for 10 minutes. Strain into a jar with a tight fitting lid.
  3. To make the popsicles, combine the reserved ginger beer, 1/4 cup ginger simple syrup, dark rum, and lime juice, and pour into popsicle molds, leaving about 1/2-inch of space at the top to allow for lime addition and expansion as it freezes. Push a slice of lime into each mold, set sticks in place, and freeze. Since they're boozy, popsicles will cure best when frozen overnight.
