Strawberry, Lime, and Coconut Popsicles

I scored the most adorable popsicle molds when I won a giveaway from CSN Stores and decided to make my first popsicles "adults only. We had fresh strawberries in the fridge so I mashed them up with fresh lime juice, coconut rum, vanilla rum, and a little seltzer. I wasn't exactly sure how much I would need to fill the molds, so I ended up with extra. I couldn't let such goodness go to waste, so made the leftovers into cocktails for hubby and I. 
The hubs isn't a huge fan of strawberries (he's crazy, isn't he?!?) but he really liked the drinks and popsicles. The lime and seltzer balance out the sweetness of the strawberries. You can taste the coconut but you really can't tell it's alcohol. My first popsicles were a yummy success and even though summer is just about over (tear!), I am going to keep the feeling alive with popsicles all year round

About 8 fresh strawberries, cleaned 
The juice of 2 limes
1/2 cup coconut rum
1/4 cup vanilla rum
Mash the strawberries in a bowl. Add in the lime juice, rum, and a splash of seltzer. Stir to combine. 
Pour into popsicle molds and freeze for at least 2 hours or until ready to enjoy. 
Use the leftovers for yummy drinks by pouring the strawberry/lime mixture into cocktail glasses and adding in a splash more of the rum and seltzer.
