1. The calls for 2 cups of peeled and cubed mango, which is roughly 2 average sized mangoes. While I highly encourage you to use fresh, ripe mangoes you can absolutely substitute frozen mango cubes if desired.
2. You can use any kind of tonic water you would like. I used diet tonic water in my popsicles and they turned out delicious. If you are more of a Gin Rickey person, you can absolutely substitute club soda for the tonic.
3. Lime Juice Cordial is simply sweetened lime juice. You should be able to find it in your local grocery store near the mixers, juice or grenadine. If you can’t find it, or don’t want to buy it, you can make it yourself:
Homemade Sweetened Lime Juice (Yield: enough for roughly 4 cocktails)
1/2 Cup Water
1/2 Cup Sugar
2/3 Cup Lime Juice
4. I recommend dividing half the strawberry slices between the popsicle molds, pouring the mango cocktail mix into the molds, and then dropping in the remaining strawberry slices. Layering the strawberries in steps will help keep them suspended and prevent them from all sinking to the bottom.
5. The recipe below yields approximately 8-10 popsicles. It will largely depend on the size of your popsicle mold and how many strawberry slices you add to each. I added about 4 slices of strawberry to each mold and ended up with 9 popsicles.
6. If you have a hard time removing the popsicles from the mold, run the sides of the mold under room temperature water for 30 seconds or so.
