- 1 bottle Pimm's
- 1 bottle lemonade
- Fresh strawberries
- Sprigs of fresh mint
Mix one part of Pimm’s with three parts lemonade. So for 150ml (¼ pint) Pimm’s, add 450ml (¾ pint) lemonade.
Thread a strawberry, halved lengthways, on to each lolly stick and press a sprig of mint into the top of it, so it looks like strawberry leaves.
Pour the Pimm’s mixture into an ice lolly mould, until it’s ¾ full. Put the sticks with the strawberries in the mould. Place the tops on the moulds and, depending on the type, pull the sticks up so the strawberries are all at the same height.
Place the lollies in the freezer until solid. To make it easier to remove them from the mould, dip briefly in hot water.
