The best grown up ice lollies.
Alcohol & ice isn't exactly revolutionary, I know, but sometimes frozen alcohol works really well (especially when it's 30 degrees outside).
These are cold, sweet & summery.
They're a little novel, a good talking point & very refreshing. I made them for a bbq last week & handed the 'mini's' mini-milks, & the 'adults' these patriotic lolly pops.
To make (about 10) you'll need:
4tbsp of Pimm's
25g of icing sugar
200g of lemonade (or you could use cava, ginger beer, sparkling water, prosecco..)
A few sprigs of mint
And a nubbin' of cucumber, cubed
On a gentle heat dissolve the sugar in a pan with 125ml of water. Give it a stir.
4...tablespoons of Pimm's to the sugared water.
Pop the fruit into the moulds.
Add the lemonade & Pimm's mixture to a jug (give it a little stir about). Pour it into the moulds.
Add a mint leaf to each gold fizzy.
Before handing them out, run them under hot water so they wiggle out for you.
