Gin & Tonic Ice Lolly With Basil, Lime & Strawberry

While we’re staying in and the sun is shining, there’s no better way to appreciate the weather than with a fruity, refreshing Gin & Tonic ice lolly ‘PopTail’ - and making your own couldn’t be easier!

Let’s face it, ice lollies aren’t just for kids. These G&T inspired lollies have a dash of something a little stronger, perfect after a long week. This sharp and tangy lolly has the taste of G&T and also has the sweetness of strawberry, the tartness of lime, and herby notes from the basil.

  • 6.25 6.25 g sugar
  • 4 4 g strawberries
  • 0.5 0.5 limes
  • 1 1 basil leaves
  • 25 25 ml gin
  • 0.5 0.5 cans of tonic

Method

  1. Boil a small amount of water in your kettle. Put the sugar into a jug with a splash of boiled water and stir until the sugar is dissolved.
  2. Slice the strawberries length ways, cut one of the limes in half and squeeze the juice into the sugar water.  Cut the other lime into slices.
  3. Add the gin and the tonic to the jug as well. Give everything a good stir.
  4. Pop a basil leaf in to each mould, along with some strawberry slices and a couple of lime slices
  5. Fill the moulds right to the brim and push a stick in each
  6. Freeze overnight

Jordan says: If you add a dash of something boozy to your lollies, keep in mind that too much will stop the lollies from freezing solid, resulting in a slush (not necessarily a bad thing, but not what we’re aiming for here). Alcohol has a higher freezing point than fruit juice so always err on the side of caution when pouring your shot(s) of gin for these lollies.
