G&T ICE BLOCKS beat the heat

When I was younger, I asked someone what gin tasted like and they told me “it tastes like tears”. A quintessentially British drink, it was often misunderstood by the Australian market.

15 years ago bartenders would have been lucky to sell a handful of G&Ts in a night. Almost no one listed Gin as their drink of choice, but that is all changing.

The piney juniper based spirit has seen a surge in popularity in recent years, helped along by a few famous people’s Instagram posts.

G&T ice blocks

  • 120ml gin
  • 300ml tonic
  • Juice one line
  • 3tbs icing sugar (Dissolved in ½ cup of water)
  • 1 punnet fresh raspberries
  1. Pour the gin, tonic and lime juice into a large jug.
  2. Add the dissolved icing sugar and give it a stir.
  3. Pour the liquid into ice block molds* and drop a few raspberries into the bottom of each mold.
  4. Secure the sticks and freeze overnight.

If you don’t have ice block molds you can use polystyrene cups and bamboo sticks. However, this method requires quite some ingenuity to keep the sticks in place.
