 Ice popsicles are not only for youngsters – in fact, these G&T flavoured ones should only be served to adults 😉  !  Gin and Tonic (or simply “G&T”, as the classic drink usually is referred to in drink-savvy circles) makes for a very tasty sorbet, at least for those of us who don’t mind some alcohol in our ice creams.
