- 1 cup sugar
- 1 cup losely packed mint leaves
- Juice of 6 lemons
- 4 cups sparkling water, chilled
- 6 skinny all-natural fruit ice pops
In a small saucepan, combine the sugar with 1 cup water. Bring to a boil over medium heat, stirring, until the sugar is dissolved. Let cool for 15 minutes, then stir in the mint. Refrigerate until cold, or up to 6 hours, then strain.
In a pitcher, stir together the mint-sugar syrup and lemon juice. Mix in the sparkling water. Pour into chilled glasses and serve with the ice pops as stirrers.
