Gin and Tonic Ice Lolly Recipe
The perfect popsicle grown up summer cooler. Gin and Tonic ice lollies!

It’s bank holiday weekend, hurrah! After fairly rubbish weather this summer, the sunshine is due out this weekend and how better to celebrate than with gin and tonic ice lollies. Cooling, refreshing and well.. GIN. And if it rains? Who cares, these popsicles will make it all better.

I love a good gin and tonic. When I first started drinking it, in my mid twenties, people occasionally looked at me like I could be Pat Butcher drinking in the Queen Vic. These days it’s totally socially acceptable, even, dare I say it, a bit hip. There’s gin festivals popping up everywhere and more different independent distillers crafting the botanical spirit than you can shake a bottle of tonic at.

Do make sure that you leave your tonic to go flat before freezing if you can help it. It stops everything bubbling up as you fill the ice lolly moulds and gives a nice smooth finish to the outside of the lollies.

The best way to make the perfect amount of these is to fill one of your ice lolly moulds with water, then weigh it. This will tell you how many millilitres of liquid each mould holds, so 100g = 100ml. So if you want to make 6 lollies, you need 600ml of mixture, still with me?

Then make about 20% gin and 80% tonic, so in that case 120ml gin and 480ml tonic. Boom, perfect amount. Or, if you prefer make a jug full and drink the left overs?

  1. What a great idea, I need to make these next summer. It’s getting a bit chilly for ice lollies at the minute! xx

  2. Mmm these sound divine! I’m a relative newcomer to Gin – I decided I need to like it when I had my 3rd daughter – I did really well at practising and learning to like g&t’s! Thanks loads for including my Gin & Lime cake – I hope you have a fantastic weekend and can still remember it after slurping on those delicious lollies! 🙂
