Everyone loves a (n)ice cold G&T, so we're giving this cocktail a summer twist. Introducing: Gin and Tonic Ice Lollies. They're refreshing, delicious and a great way for you to drink without even realising. Genius.
They make a fabulous party piece, and your friends are sure to love them. Plus they're a well-deserved reward for slaving over that hot BBQ in summer heat! You can have them with your friends, or just as a special treat for yourself after a long day (no judgement here!)
We advise that you don't go overboard when adding the gin, as too much alcohol may stop the ice lollies from freezing - and nobody wants to eat liquid slush! They are best served in a bowl full of ice, so you and your guests can help yourselves and not worry about the tasty treats melting.
Not only do they taste great, but these lollies look so cute, and are guaranteed to make any occasion feel classier. There's just one problem: your kids may want to try them! Just make sure they know this is a special adult-only treat...
Go on - give it a go whilst the sun is still miraculously shining and BBQ season is still in full swing.
- 400ml good-quality tonic (Fever Tree Elderflower Tonic Water works well)
- 2 capfuls of gin
- Zest and juice of 1 lime
- ¼ cucumber, very thinly sliced
In a jug, mix together the tonic, gin, lime zest and juice. Put the slices of cucumber in to an 8-10 hole ice lolly mould and top with the gin and tonic mixture. Freeze overnight. Take out of the freezer 5 minutes before serving.
