Gin and Tonic Ice Lolly

I feel like these ice lollies really need no introduction. I mean, it’s gin and tonic in a new, delicious, summer-friendly form. It’s all the best things about your favourite tipple, but EVEN BETTER.

They genuinely are so easy, and take just 10 minutes to put together. Whip up a batch the night before a barbecue and you’ll be the most popular kid in town. I guarantee it.

A word of caution, though. Don’t increase the gin ratio, however tempting it may be – alcohol doesn’t really freeze so you’ll just end up with some really cold gin & tonics rather than the ice lollies you were going for. Which isn’t the worst thing, obviously, but perhaps a little disappointing if you were hoping for a frozen treat.

Ingredients
  1. 25ml granulated sugar
  2. 25ml water
  3. 50ml gin
  4. 350ml tonic
  5. juice of 1 lime
  6. slices of lime (optional)
Instructions
  1. In a small saucepan, heat the sugar and water together until the sugar has dissolved and the mixture is a syrupy texture. Remove from the heat and allow to cool.
  2. In a large jug, mix together the gin, tonic and lime juice. Stir in the syrup.
  3. Pour into ice lolly moulds, leaving room at the top for the lollies to expand as they freeze.
  4. Place in the freezer for 1-2 hours. At this stage, you can add a slice of lime by just pressing it gently into the lolly - they should be a little bit more solid so the lime will stay in place. Add a lolly stick to each one in the same way, unless your lolly moulds come with built in sticks!
  5. Leave to freeze overnight and remove from moulds by gently running warm water over the outside until the lollies come loose.
