Happy Friday guys and girls!
So, with all the long weekends we’ve been having in the BVI recently, I’ve been having ample time to practice and perfect my boozy ice lollies and I wanted to share some of the successful concoctions with you – I started with the classic Gin and Tonic, progressed to Pimms and then decided to branch out with a Pomegranate Rose Spritzer.
See the recipes below:
:: Gin and Tonic –
1 cup Tonic
1/2 shot Gin (my preference would be Tanqueray or Hendricks)
1/4 lime squeezed
Slices of cucumber for garnish
:: Pimms –
1/4 cup Pimms
1/3 cup Ginger Ale
1/3 cup Sprite or Lemonade
Slices of strawberry and/or cucumber for garnish
:: Pomegranate Rose Spritzer –
1/4 cup Rose
3/4 cup Lemonade or Club Soda
1/2 shot Pama Pomegranate Liquer
Pomegranate seeds to garnish
Each of these recipes makes 3/4 lollies depending on the size of your molds. I wanted to be able to make a selection. Double up, or whatever, to make more.
Soak ice lolly sticks in water for 30 minutes, mix ingredients and pour into the mold, add the garnishes and insert sticks. Freeze overnight.
Note: because of the alcohol the lollies will melt a little faster than usual. You’ll just need to eat them quickly! 🙂
Next on my list are some other favourites, Aperol Spritz, Margarita, Mojito and Sangria. Any other ideas?
PS. Warning: these lollies are not for the faint of heart…
