If you’re looking to toast to this sublime weather of late with gin, you don’t just have to mix up a G&T — you can have it as a lolly.
Gin and tonic lollies are a revitalising treat that packs a one two punch: booze and sweet, icy refreshment.
Fortunately, Sainsbury’s are the latest supermarket to launch a range of alcoholic ice pops. Choose from Gin & Tonic, Raspberry Bellini or buy both, because they’re a bargain.
Both editions come in packs of four for just £2.50. From 14 May onward, you can snap them up in Sainsbury’s stores except in Scotland.
In comparison, Aldi’s gin and tonic lollies will set you back a tad more at £2.99 per pack of four.
Sainsbury’s gin and tonic lollies don’t just taste like gin, they’re 4.5% ABV too. It’s about equivalent to a can of beer, which ranges from 4 to 6% ABV, whereas a bottle of gin is 37.5% ABV.
The Raspberry Bellini Ice Pops are created from a delicious sounding mix of raspberry puree and prosecco, also boasting a 4.5% ABV.
These adults only treats will only be available seasonally, so buy them up whilst stocks (and the sunshine) lasts.
While you’re at Sainsbury’s, you can also pick up a bottle of Sipsmith Cup. Crafted from botanicals like Earl Grey and rose petals, it’s said to be even better than Pimm’s No 1. The supermarket is selling the summer cup staple for just £14 for a full 70cl bottle.
And there you have it. You’re all set for summer.
Sainsbury’s Gin and Tonic Ice Pops are available from Sainsbury’s UK stores except Scotland from 14 May, £2.50 for pack of 4
