Makes about 10 Pimmsicles, depending on the size of your molds

1 1/2 cups Pimms No. 1 (375 ml)
2 cups ginger beer or ginger ale (500 ml), flattened (leave open overnight in your fridge)
2 tablespoons mint-infused sugar syrup (see recipe here)
1 kiwifruit
1/4 cucumber
2 strawberries


Place the Pimm's in a heavy saucepan, and bring to the boil. When boiling, time it for exactly 2 minutes, then take off the heat and pour into a heatproof container. Let cool.

Stir the mint syrup into the flattened ginger ale.

Peel and thinly slice the kiwifruit into rounds. Wash and slice the cucumber into rounds, as well (don't bother peeling it). Hull and slice the strawberries.

Gently place a slice of kiwifruit or cucumber or strawberries, or all three, in each of the popsicle molds. Pour in the mint-ginger ale mixture so that it fills up about two thirds of the mold. Then pour in the prepared Pimms, leaving a little space at the top, and stir very gently, so the mixture stays two toned.

Top with popsicle sticks and freeze overnight.

Run lukewarm water over the popsicles to unmold and enjoy!
