Gin & Tonic Ice Lollies

Is there anything more fun and refreshing on a hot day than a G&T ice lolly? Learn how to make gin and tonic ice lollies with this easy recipe.

Sloshed sorbet, boozy cake and intoxicating ice-cream - adding drink to dessert is definitely having a moment with plenty of shops and restaurants embracing the trend.

And now there are gin and tonic ice lollies. Because, no matter how refreshing a G&T is, sometimes the day’s just too hot!

Why buy G&T ice lollies though when you can make your own? It's easy, cheap and you can vary the gin used to create different flavours!

Two Birds Gin & Tonic Ice LolliesIngredients:

  • 700ml Fever-Tree Indian Tonic Water
  • 50ml Gin*
  • 12.5ml Fresh Lime Juice
  • 75g Sliced Cucumber

* For this recipe, we recommend Two Birds. It's light, refreshing and works with the cucumber. You could try varying the gin and garnish used though. Try Brockmans and blueberries for a fruitier flavour or Pinkster and raspberries for something more refreshing and tart.

Method:

Mix together the gin, tonic and lime juice.

Place the cucumber slices into the lolly moulds.

Add the gin, tonic and lime juice mix into the mould.

Leave overnight to freeze.

It's that easy! And now you have fresh and frosty G&T ice lollies.
