Tropical Party Popsicle and Tropical Soda

When you live in the desert, the first 100-degree day, you are looking at the water temperature, dragging out the swimsuits, and making cold drinks. Here's two I love to make - one is frozen!

I cut up watermelon, pineapple and mango and put into a magic bullet mixer and add coconut rum. Whirl and pour into popsicle molds. 

You can do all kinds of variations. Sometimes I add cilantro or ginger for zing.

The best soda I've ever had is made with no sugar added. Tonic water has a natural sweetening taste to it when mixed with fruit. I put watermelon, ginger root, mango, and pineapple chunks into a bottle and put in fridge. Now and then I turn it upside down to help mix the flavors. This is so much like real soda taste that you feel super guilty.
