Amazing ways with gin and tonic

Fan of a classic G&T? Time to get creative with one of our 3 ways with a gin and tonic this summer – from a showstopping bake to an elegant granita and easy ice lollies.

  1. Gin and tonic cake

    Ever tried baking with gin? Make this strictly adults-only gin and tonic cake recipe for a special occasion or birthday treat for a gin-lover this summer. The fragrant sponge is flavoured with juniper and lime, brushed with a fragrant gin syrup and sandwiched with whipped cream before being topped with a gin icing!

  2. Gin and tonic granita

    For an easy frozen dessert, try our step-by-step gin and tonic granita recipe. This pretty pud doesn’t need churning or an ice cream maker – all you need is a fork to make the icy crystals. We’ve used lime along with the gin but you could swap this for any citrus fruit: grapefruit or lemon would work well.

  3. Gin and tonic ice lollies

    This summer, swap your 5pm Friday G&T for a refreshing gin and tonic ice lolly instead. Using just 5 ingredients, this fun recipe transforms this classic drink into a cooling summer treat – they’ve even got a pretty cucumber ribbon for that G&T finishing touch.
