Strawberry G&T Ice Cream
There is a heatwave coming and Wimbledon is on…. so I have the perfect recipe for you to try! This strawberry gin and tonic ice cream is no-churn, super easy and incredibly delicious! 🍓🎾🍨🍸
I love this time of year when the strawberries are so sweet and tasty! I decided to make this ice cream recipe with Palmers Celebration Gin, which is strawberry and rose infused. It’s a wonderful gin, not too sweet and perfect for this time of year. Double Dutch Pomegranate & Basil is lovely with it and also gives this particular recipe a flavour that is very moreish!
Give this a go! You may want to double up on quantities if there is more than 2 or 3 people (depending on portion sizes!)
Strawberry G&T Ice cream
- 100ml cup water
- 100ml Tonic Water (I suggest Double Dutch Pomegranate & Basil)
- 50g granulated sugar
- Fresh finely chopped strawberries (I used 6 large plus extra for garnish).
- A couple of spigs of fresh mint
- 200ml double cream
- 5 tablespoons icing sugar
- 50ml Strawberry Gin ( I suggest Palmers Celebration Gin)
Make the syrup by simmering the water, tonic water and sugar together. Add 3 large chopped strawberries and a sprig of mint.
Leave the syrup to simmer and thicken for about 15 mins, strain and then pop into the fridge to cool.
Whisk the double cream in a large bowl until it thickens.
Add the gin to your taste (40-50ml seems a good amount!)
Slowly whisk in icing sugar.
Add 50ml of the sugar syrup, stir until smooth.
Finally stir in a handful of finely chopped strawberries.
Pour the mixture into a container with a tight lid and freeze overnight.
To serve, wait 5 minutes for the ice cream to soften before scooping into bowls. Serve with more fresh strawberries and a sprig of mint. Enjoy!
