watermelon wedges, about 1” thick
Combine rum and daiquiri mix in a large zip-top plastic bag. Add watermelon wedges. Close bag and gently move it back and forth to ensure all the watermelon is soaked in liquid. Place bag in fridge for 30-60 minutes.
Remove watermelon from bag. Using a small, sharp knife, carefully slice a small slit in the rind of each watermelon – cut just barely through the green part to give the stick a starting point. Then slide a stick into the slit in the rind, and push it about an inch or so into the watermelon, just far enough so the stick is firm and securely holds the watermelon wedge upright.
Place the watermelon wedges on a small, parchment-lined baking sheet. Freeze for 1 hour. Serve and enjoy!
- Make this recipe kid-friendly by leaving out the rum.
- Serve these yummy pops with a sprinkling of salt for extra flavor!
- The sticks are sold as "craft sticks" at craft and big box stores.
