Boozy ice lollies can be an effective and delightful reward for adults who want to cool down and enjoy an alcoholic treat. Alcohol does not freeze so making them without know-how can prove difficult. So how exactly can you make your favourite tipple into a delicious ice lolly? Express Food brings you a few recipes to try this week.
Rhubarb Gin Ice Lollies
- 1 part Slingsby Rhubarb Gin
- 4 parts Fentimans Rose Lemonade
- 1 tbsp agave syrup

In a jug, mix Slingsby Rhubarb Gin with Fentimans Rose Lemonade and squeeze into the mixture 1 tbsp of agave syrup.
Add two fresh raspberries into each ice lolly mould and divide the mixture between each.
Freeze for one to two hours until semi-frozen and then push the sticks into place.
Leave in the freezer until fully set and enjoy.
Top tip: As tempting as it is, please do not be too heavy with the gin as your lollies will not set.
