G&T Icy Poles

These are just the thing for the coming summer days.  

A gin and tonic is one of the most refreshing alcoholic beverages to sip on during warmer months so these "adult only" icy poles just perfect for a barbecue or for a picnic or just when you need to cool down.


You will need -
100g caster sugar
80ml Nonesuch Dry Gin
50ml cold water
Juice of 1 lime
225ml tonic water
Slices of cucumber and/fruit (optional)
Icy pole molds and sticks

Method -
Put the sugar and cold water in small saucepan and stir over a low/medium heat (don't let it boil) until the sugar has dissolved. Set aside to cool completely.
When cool, put the sugar syrup in a medium pouring jug with the gin, lime juice and tonic water and mix.
If you are adding fruit or cucumber slices put a slice into each of the molds.
Pour the mixture evenly into the molds, add the sticks and put in the freezer. Freeze until solid (ideally overnight).
