  1. Put the ginger beer, sugar syrup and lime juice into a medium saucepan and bring to a simmer. Reduce the heat to low and heat gently for 2-3 mins until the mixture is no longer fizzing.
  2. Take the pan off the heat, stir in the rum and set aside to cool at room temperature. Put a slice of lime into each ice lolly mould and pour the mixture evenly into each one.
  3. You should get 6 lollies, leaving a 1cm gap at the top of each mould so the mixture can expand as it freezes. Freeze for at least 8 hrs or overnight.
