Re: ice lollies

My mum used to make us lemonade and cola ice lollies in the summer but apparently you have let the drink go flat before you make them.

I have seen ice lolly kits in Coop.

Not sure about the use of alcohol, I guess it wouldn't freeze very well.

I remember filling a watermelon with vodka a couple of days before a barbeque a few years ago.

Slice a bit of the skin off, dig down a little bit, fill the hollow with vodka, allow to absorb, add a bit more, repeat until you think it's strong enough.

It's err.. interesting.

Re: ice lollies

When my child was teething we used to make her frozen OJ popsickles. I bought some fruit smoothies and froze them also, nice, very nice (mango, blueberry, etc..). IKEA and Coop have ok popsickle thingies.

Re: ice lollies

Sure, I make them all the time. Well, all the time during May-Sept, anyway. I do any sort of fruit juice or make up a jug of blackcurrant/raspberry/orange/etc squash (syrup) and freeze that.

Sometimes I do stripy ones - pour OJ half way up mould, freeze, pour blackcurrant squash on the remaining half, freeze. Or add fruit - fill mould with raspberries, then pour peach juice over. Chunks of banana in chocolate milkshake is good, too

My kids are largely in charge of dictating the recipes, and so far all variations have been at least edible.

Re: ice lollies

I love Jello shots. Always makes you a star at the party.

Lime Jello with Tequila makes for excellent Margerita Jello shots. Yummy.

Re: ice lollies

This doesn't quite answer your question but I just discovered sour gummy worm popsicles at Migros the other day. They are, to quote Green Velvet, da bomb.

Vodka goes quite viscous if you leave it in the freezer for a few hours, as does lemoncella.

Kids also go quite vicious when they indulge in Jello shots that were not left in the freezer but not meant for them.

Re: ice lollies

I make mine with vimto, i bought plastic lolly holes, and plastic sticks in a pack from Ikea very pratical because they are not in single pieces, it is a block with 7 holes (sorry i can`t remember the right name) so they don`t fall over, like the single ones, they used to drive me mad, fill them up try putting them in the freezer, next thing you know they have fallen over and all the contents are swimming in your freezer

Re: ice lollies

I made them with sweetened condensed milk diluted with a bit of milk and with added vanilla. Sweetish coffee-flavoured ones with 2 tablespoons of cream added.

If you boil up some chopped berries and sugar with a soaked/bloomed leaf of gelatine in the liquid, it'll make your iced lollies smoother, Mrs Otter.

The other day I made 'pina colada' jello with orange juice, sugar, lime juice, liqueur and coconut milk.

Depends on how much, or should I say, how little you use: http://wiki.answers.com/Q/What_is_th...ure_of_alcohol

Works better IME if you use a syringe & needle to mainline it straight into a different parts of the watermelon. Also means you don't need to wait as long for it to "absorb".

Re: ice lollies

The secret is to give them a good mix or stir with a fork half way through freezing, it really helps with the consistency at the end.

I've made many with rum and/or vodka, came out fantastic. Just use a little alcohol.
