These are so great for a sunny summers day and not hard to make. Why not make a batch now so they are ready for when the sun comes out.
Recipe for Gin, Cucumber and white current lollies
350g fresh white currants
½ cup sugar
Juice of half a lemon
1 cup gin
1 sliced lemon
1 sliced cucumber

Pour into the popsicle mould (if you don’t have one then plastic champagne glasses work well – probably about 7-8) insert cucumber or lemon slices and freeze for at least 5 hours.

So you’re a fan of Gin and Tonics? Well we’ve just found a whole new way of enjoying them, from replacing your usual lemon with new and exciting ingredients to making a sorbet and experiencing enjoying your favourite gin in a way you’ve never even imagined!
