On a super hot summers day, I love to have fruit ice lollies in the freezer for Oliver. We enjoy making these together by freezing half water half juice in a lolly mold. They are such a treat on a scorching day & yet they are still healthy.
So that means the kiddie ice lolly box is ticked, but what about the grown-ups?
Since we are slightly G&T obsessed around here these days – like the rest of the country – I was keen to make some grown-up ice lollies. When I found this recipe for (*drum roll*) G&T Popsicles I did a little happy dance!
They are really easy & if you like G&T in a glass, then you are sure to adore these little yummies.
Gin + Tonic Popsicles
Makes 10 ice pops (depending on the size of your pop mold)
180 ml MALFY Gin
1/2 Cup of Freshly Squeezed Lime Juice
750 ml / 3 Cups of Tonic Water
Popsicle Sticks (optional)
Juice your limes & then add it to a large bowl with the gin & tonic water. Pick a good gin, a London dry style would be best, or something citrusy & floral. (The MALFY worked very well). Your tonic is key here because it is the biggest ingredient and is going to yield the most flavor to the popsicles. Fever-Tree tonic water—it is clean, fresh, and has a very aromatic flavor that goes perfectly with the citrus notes of gin.
Your tonic is key here because it is the biggest ingredient and is going to yield the most flavor to the popsicles. The original recipe calls for Fever-Tree tonic water— it is clean, fresh & has a very aromatic flavor that goes perfectly with the citrus notes of the gin.
Give your ingredients a good stir & then pour them into the popsicle mold. Leave enough room at the top to add some cucumbers. Cover & insert the popsicle sticks. Send them to the freezer & let freeze for at least 6 hours, although overnight is always best.
And then you have a delicious little G&T popsicle or two or three.
