The ultimate heat wave recipe: gin & tonic ice pops

The ultimate heat wave recipe: gin & tonic ice pops

These boozy ice pops are the perfect treat if you planned on sipping on G&T's in the sunshine all weekend.

We have the perfect recipe if you planned on guzzling G&T’s in the sunshine all weekend – gin and tonic ice pops!

Ice lollies or ice pops? Editor Lauren thinks everything is ice cream, whether there’s dairy involved or not, which I think we can all agree is disturbingly incorrect. Whatever way you say it, your key to the most delicious of summer days awaits…

Gin & Tonic Ice Pops

Ingredients

  • 50ml of the gin of your choice
  • 700ml of tonic water
  • 1 lime
  • 1 cucumber
  • Ice-pop Moulds
  • Optional: if you’re feeling fancy, you can throw in a scattering of berries.


Method

Mix your gin and tonic with juice from the lime.

Slice the cucumber and place a slice into your ice pop moulds.

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

Place your moulds in the freezer and leave overnight.

That’s it!

If your ice-pops didn’t work out, you don’t own ice pop moulds or you’re just too lazy to make them – fret not. Aldi has you covered with these Gin and Tonic ice lollies. You get four in a pack at €3.50 per box. They have a 4.5% alcohol level, are only available to customers aged 18 years and over and most importantly also come in Prosecco and Peach Bellini flavour. Happy heat wave!
