Freezing Time 4 hours
Total Time 10 minutes
Servings 12 popsicles

Ingredients

  • 6 oz simple syrup
  • 6 inches cucumber, roughly chopped
  • 6 mint leaves
  • 12 oz Lillet Blanc
  • 3 oz gin
  • 9 oz sparkling water

Simple Syrup

  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1 cup water

Instructions

  1. Combine all ingredients except sparkling water in a blender. Blend until puréed. Stir in sparkling water. 

  2. Using a vegetable peeler, peel a ribbon of cucumber and place it into popsicle mold, pushing it against the side of the mold, down the centre, to create a strip of green down the middle of the finished popsicle. 

  3. Stir boozy contents until well-combined, otherwise cucumber and mint will all float to the top, pour into popsicle molds, leaving 2mm of headroom in each. Add bottoms/popsicle sticks.

  4. Freeze for four hours before serving. 

Simple Syrup

  1. Combine 1 cup sugar and 1 cup water in a small saucepan over medium heat. Stirring occasionally, simmer until sugar is dissolved. Let cool to room temperature before using.
