With all Jozi foodies trying to beat the heat and create deliciously fresh treats for the summer season, Lorna Maseko has shared her icy-cool Tanqueray infused popsicle recipe with us.
Check out the recipe below and make yourself refreshing G&T popsicles.
Gin & Tonic and Mint-Grapefruit Popsicles – Serves 8–10
1 cup sugar
250 ml gin (Tanqueray Flor de Sevilla preferable,
but any gin should work)
1½ cups tonic water (fl at)
1 cup grapefruit juice (keep the broken segments of the grapefruit for garnish, remove the skin)
handful of mint leaves
Once cool, add the gin, tonic and grapefruit juice to the bowl and stir. Place a segment of grapefruit as well as some mint leaves into each popsicle mould, pour in the gin mixture and freeze overnight.
Refreshing on a lovely summer’s day!
