- Mix 600ml of the ginger ale with the lime juice in a jug, whisking to remove most of the fizz. Pour into a shallow, freezer-proof container, leaving room for the liquid to expand as it freezes. Cover, then freeze for 4 hrs or overnight.
- Use your hands or a cutlery knife to break apart large pieces of the frozen ginger ale and tip into a blender with 300ml of the unfrozen ginger ale. Blend well, stopping regularly to scrape down the sides or break up any larger crystals. Use the remaining ginger ale, if needed, to blend the mixture into slush. Working quickly, spoon into 4 glasses; garnish with lime wedges and mint.
Tip: Make sure you freeze the ginger ale in a shallow container or it will be hard to break up. A 25cm one is ideal.
