Makes 8 Pops

1 half of a watermelon

1 cup simple syrup

juice of 2 limes

1 cup light rum

8 lime slices

1/2 cup simple syrup

  1. Cut up the watermelon and place the meat in a blender. Process until it’s a liquid.
  2. Strain the liquid so that you only get the wonderful watermelon juice and no meat.
  3. In a large bowl, mix watermelon juice, simple syrup, lime juice, and rum.
  4. Fill each bag with a little simple syrup and a lime slice, freeze until almost solid, then pour in the watermelon mixture.
  5. Tie and freeze at least 8 hours.


Because alcohol does not freeze, some of these pops will not get completely frozen. They’ll all freeze a bit different; the more alcohol in them, the less hard they’ll be. Turn your freezer up high and you’ll be fine!
