  1. Pour the tonic water into a large jug. Add the sugar and stir until dissolved and the tonic has lost its fizz. Add the lime zest and juice, mix in the gin, then pour into 8 x 100ml ice lolly moulds (we used silicone lolly moulds). Freeze for 3 hrs, stirring halfway through, until semi-frozen.
  2. Remove the lollies from the freezer, stir, then push 1 cucumber ribbon and 1 lime slice into each. Push the sticks in, then freeze for another 8-10 hrs until solid. Remove from the moulds to serve.

Tip: To make these alcohol-free, stir the lime zest and juice into 700ml lemonade, pour into 8 lolly moulds and put in the freezer. After 2 hrs, continue from step 2.
