A Recipe For Gin and Tonic Ice Lollies

Ever fancied making gin and tonic ice lollies? This recipe is so simple and a winner with all the grown ups in our family.

I made this for the first time a couple of month’s ago but thought I’d save it until the weather picked up again, before I shared it with you!

I had made quite a few kid’s ice lollies before this — including mini milk and even caramel — but it was the first time I’d made any for the grown ups before.

I’ve created a few different varieties since — including our favourite cocktail tipple Mojito. Plus a Strawberry Daiquiri ice lolly too (I’ll share those on another day).

But the homemade gin and tonic ice lollies are definitely my favourite.

A Recipe For Gin and Tonic Ice Lollies

This recipe for gin and tonic ice lollies is just as good as any I’ve bought in the shops before and they’re really simple to make.

There was a little bit of trial and error, to begin with, but the recipe below is the best so far!

I always combine tonic waters when I’m making my regular gin and tonic (I prefer a mix of slimline Schweppes, topping up with Aromatic Fevertree); so it made sense to use the same combo when making the gin and tonic popsicles.

Ultimately, use whatever gin — or tonics — you prefer; but stick to these measurements and it should still work a treat. 

All the ingredients you'll need for this Gin and Tonic Ice Lolly recipe

How To Make Gin And Tonic Ice Lollies 

For 8 Lollies

You will need:
100ml of your favourite gin (I love Roku the best)
300ml Schweppes tonic water (I used the slimline version)
200ml Fever Tree Aromatic Tonic  
2 dessert spoonfuls (20 grams) of caster sugar
Lemon slices to garnish (you could use lime or cucumber if you preferred)

Method:

1. Mix together the gin with the tonics.

2. Carefully — and carefully is the operative word here! — carefully stir in the first spoonful of  sugar.

The gin and tonic mixture will fizz up, but gently stir it around. When it subsides, add the second spoonful.

Stir until the sugar granules have completely dissolved.

3. Next, pop a lemon slice in the bottom of each lolly mold. Mine are stainless steel lolly molds from Amazon.

4. Top up with the gin and tonic mixture — and place a lolly stick in each one.

5. Freeze overnight (or 6 hours); whichever’s easiest.

6. Serve and enjoy!
