For a dessert that brings a touch of nostalgia and a healthy measure of gin try making these delicious Gin & Tonic Slushies.
They’re super easy to make! All you need is 3 ingredients, a box, a freezer and a spoon.
All you need to do is pop the ingredients in a container, give them a quick stir then leave the dish in the freezer overnight.
Once the G&T mixture has frozen, break it up with a spoon and it’s ready to serve.
The perfect balance of sweet and sour, with a light refreshing finish. Ideal to end a BBQ (or just whenever really).
We’d recommend serving the slushies with the garnish appropriate to the original gin (in this case a slice of lemon).
If you prefer your sweet treats a little more floral and fruity then you’ll definitely enjoy this hibiscus infused gin slushie.
The method is the same as the Gin and Tonic Slushie, but with the following ingredients.
To make the Hibiscus Infused Gin, add 8 hibiscus petals to 100ml of your choice of gin and leave in a cool place for an hour. The gin will take on the gorgeous aromas of the hibiscus flowers as well as a fun pink colour.
Once the infusion is made, simply combine with the other ingredients, freeze overnight and break up again.
You can try this recipe with any gin so why not experiment with your favourites. Let us know what you think the best combination is, we’ve yet to find one we don’t like!
