Method

  1. Put the sugar in a pan with 50ml (2oz) water and heat through gently to dissolve. Bring to the boil and simmer gently for 1 minute. Set aside to cool for about 20 minutes.
  2. In a blender, blitz the watermelon flesh with the cucumber, lemon juice and cooled sugar syrup. Pass through a sieve into a jug and divide between 8 lolly moulds. Freeze for at least 4 hours, or overnight, until solid.
  3. If serving these in drinks or cocktails, get the chilled lemonade or gin and tonics made up in serving glasses with slices of cucumber and lemon before unmoulding the lollies. Run the outsides of the moulds under hot water for 10 seconds then remove gently by the sticks (repeat if they won’t budge on the first attempt). Eat as they are, or add to drinks just before serving.
