GIN AND TONIC ICE LOLLIES

GIN AND TONIC ICE LOLLIES

If, like me you are a big g&t fan, then you’ll love these grown up ice lollies! They are so simple to make and really refreshing on a hot Summers day.

Whilst making ice lollies for the kids a few days ago, we decided we’d have a go at making these too. I’d seen them on Pinterest a while ago but had never got round to making them.

I’m a bit sad that mine don’t look quite as perfect and pinteresty as I’d have liked, we’ll call them rustic, OK? But anyway, they are still delicious.

Having looked at instructions on Pinterest since making these I’ve realised where I went a little bit wrong, I should have allowed the tonic to go flat before freezing, woops! But at least I know now for next time…

So here is the correct way to make gin & tonic ice lollies…

  • Pour your tonic and allow it to go flat, or alternatively you can use water
  • Once the tonic is flat, make up your g&t as you usually would
  • Slice some lemon or lime and pop a piece in each of your ice lolly moulds
  • Pour the g&t into the moulds and pop the stick in
  • Freeze overnight as alcohol takes longer to freeze

Simple!

    These look good and sound AMAZING Emma. Perfect for that summer’s day 🙂
    I must learn from you, and also try things from Pinterest…I pin and pin and never get around to trying !

    • July 9, 2016 / 9:02 pm

      I’m the same with Pinterest, I have the best intentions of making things but I rarely end up doing it x

  4. July 9, 2016 / 8:30 pm

    I love these! I’ve pinned them too… They look good enough for Pinterest to me!

    • July 13, 2016 / 12:23 pm

      Yes definitely give them a go once the baby has arrived 🙂 x

    That looks delicious! I’ll definitely have to give those a go at some point. People will surely appreciate them. Then after that I think I’ll try and subsists the gin for vodka and see if that works at all? I love a good vodka tonic!! #KCACOLS

    • July 10, 2016 / 2:04 pm

      Ooh yes I’m sure vodka would work just as well 🙂

    The simple ideas are really the best tho aren’t they ?! Great tip to let the tonic go flat tho, would never have thought of that #kcacols

    • July 10, 2016 / 2:04 pm

      No I wish I’d have realised before hand but never mind. It just means I need to have another go at them now 🙂 x

  8. July 10, 2016 / 10:46 am

    These look a bit delish! I drink gin with lime cordial and lemonade and I might follow your recipe and mix it up a bit, Plus some G&T ones for those that do. Ooh the list could go on couldn’t it. Pimms? #KCACOLS

    • July 10, 2016 / 2:02 pm

      Oh yes Pimms would be great! x

    • July 10, 2016 / 2:02 pm

      Thank you x

    These are so cute! Just bookmarked and I’m planning on whipping some up for a BBQ! I think yours look very pinterest-able! #KCACOLS

    • July 10, 2016 / 2:00 pm

      Ah thank you 🙂 x

  10. July 11, 2016 / 11:49 am

  12. July 11, 2016 / 4:23 pm

    I am not sure if I would like this as I have never tried gin and tonic! But I know my MIL would

      You’ve never tried gin & tonic?! You’re definitely missing out 😉 x

  13. July 11, 2016 / 7:11 pm

    These look really refreshing for a hot day and cunning way of having a little tipple without the kids knowing 😉 I’m not a massive G&T fan but reckon they are probably nice as ice lollies. Wonder what other drinks you can do this with!

    #MarvMondays

    • July 12, 2016 / 9:23 am

      Someone suggested pimms! I’m so going to give that a go x

  14. July 11, 2016 / 7:23 pm

    Seriously, they look flipping amazing! Ice lollies are so simple to make and yet I STILL can’t bring myself to attempt it haha, need to now I’ve discovered thse though. Thanks for linking up to #MarvMondays. Kaye xo

    • July 12, 2016 / 9:24 am

      Thanks for hosting. Give them a go, you won’t be disappointed x

    • July 12, 2016 / 9:25 am

      They would be perfect for a BBQ x

  15. July 13, 2016 / 12:32 am

    I’ve never had gin & tonic before, but who’s not up for a boozy popsicle?! Haha, seriously, these sound soo fun, and refreshing-totally going to give them a try! Thanks for sharing <3 #KCACOLS

    • July 13, 2016 / 12:24 pm

      Oh you are missing out! Go buy some gin now 😉 x

  16. July 13, 2016 / 11:06 am

    I like the rustic look. They sound delicious and refreshing, especially with the lemon slice. I read an article recently that says lemons, when frozen and eaten are extremely good for you, skin and everything! I might just try this with mohitos and frozen lemons.
    Enjoy yours, I expect you will be making them again. 😉

    These look so good! Plus a legitimate reason to be cruel and tell the little ‘un I’m not sharing with her! 😉 #KCACOLS

    I love the idea of making adult lollies. I recently found a recipe that was iced coffee and liquor that I thought sounded nice. While I’m not a big G&T person I can imagine it would be refreshing! #KCACOLS

  24. July 15, 2016 / 11:57 pm

    Must admit that I don’t like gin (or drink alcohol at all), but this sounds like a great idea – bet people would love them at summer BBQs!

    Thanks so much for linking up at #KCACOLS. Hope you come back again next Sunday
