Gin & Tonic ice lollies - you won't get these with a Mr Whippy!

Gin & Tonic ice lollies - you won't get these with a Mr Whippy!
  • 100g caster sugar
  • 50 ml water
  • Juice of one lime
  • Handful of raspberries
  • Cucumber slices
  • 200ml tonic water
  • 80ml gin
  • Lolly moulds

Put the water into a small saucepan, add the sugar and gently heat through until the sugar dissolves (do not boil).  Once dissolved leave the mixture to cool completely.  Mix together the gin, lime juice, tonic water and the cooled syrup water.  Into each lolly mould add a raspberry and a slice of cucumber, top up with the lolly liquid and place in to the freezer These are best if left overnight to ensure they are really frozen!  
We were a little greedy and got stuck in after 8 hours and had a bit of liquid dripping all over the place!

Who said lollies had to be for kids? These are so good, got a good kick to them so don't plan on driving anywhere, just what you need given the weather we have been experiencing, definitely ideal for summer, enjoy and cheers! Recipe from Delicious Magazine.
