These adults-only popsicles are the final word in summertime refreshment.
Combine all ingredients except sparkling water in a blender. Blend until puréed. Stir in sparkling water.
Using a vegetable peeler, peel a ribbon of cucumber and place it into popsicle mold, pushing it against the side of the mold, down the centre, to create a strip of green down the middle of the finished popsicle.
Stir boozy contents until well-combined, otherwise cucumber and mint will all float to the top, pour into popsicle molds, leaving 2mm of headroom in each. Add bottoms/popsicle sticks.
Freeze for four hours before serving.
Combine 1 cup sugar and 1 cup water in a small saucepan over medium heat. Stirring occasionally, simmer until sugar is dissolved. Let cool to room temperature before using.
