Frozen Gordon’s Sicilian lemon gin slush recipe

I know, I know you don’t need to tell me...I’m currently addicted to turning all of my cocktails into a slush...maybe it’s something to do with the inner child in me? Orrrr the fact it’s just been really bloody hot and frozen version of drinks somehow taste 10x better when the sun is shining? Let’s go with both shall we?! 

So today’s refreshing concoction is this Gordon’s Sicilian lemon and Fanta lemon beauty. I didn’t think for one minute I’d love this as much as the white peach flavour, but it’s SO refreshing and reminds me of being on holiday abroad, so it’s right up there next to the peach in my opinion. Please bare in mind you’re talking to an ex lemon hater, so it’s got to be good if I think so. 

The first sip will take your breath away- they’re dangerously moreish...

Recipe for Sicilian lemon gin slushies (makes 2): 

•8oz Gordon’s Sicilian lemon gin 
•8oz Prosecco 
•14oz Fanta Lemon OR Cloudy lemonade 
•25ml sugar cane syrup 
•Handful of crushed ice 
•1 lemon- sliced 

M E T H O D: 

1.) Freeze the prosecco and Fanta lemon in ice cube trays *separately* (it takes around 2-3 trays), and leave to freeze for at least 4-6 hours, or even better, overnight. Slice your fresh lemon and also freeze. 

2.) Next measure out your gin into a jug and pop in the fridge to cool (this just helps make the slush even more refreshing). 

3.) Once everything is fully frozen chuck both your prosecco and lemonade ice cubes into a blender along with the gin. Measure out 25ml of sugar syrup and pour over the top along with a handful of ice. Blitz quickly for 30 seconds or so - until everything is just blended otherwise it’ll lose the slush consistency a little. 

4.) Pour into chilled/frozen gin glasses, and then top up with a splash of prosecco over the top for extra fix, and then garnish with frozen lemon slices to finish. 

Notes: *If you can’t get hold of any Fanta lemon (usually sold in B&M) you could use cloudy lemonade instead and it’ll still taste just as delish. 

*This recipe is very easily doubled if you have more friends round, or you know just because you can’t get enough of the taste. 

I’d absolutely love to know what you think if you decide to whip them up, my previous white peach and rosé version went down SO well so I’d be thrilled if you adore this one just as much! Enjoy...
