Tally Ho For Pimms Lollies!

Serve these naughty little Pimms lollies instead of a bigger dessert at a summer barbecue and you’ll be the hostess with the mostess. Remember you’ll need lolly sticks and lolly moulds. Alternatively, you can use larger shot glasses as the moulds: place the strawberry, mint and orange zest into the glass and fill with the Pimms mixture. Freeze for one hour, or until the lollies are partially frozen, then insert the lolly sticks and continue to freeze until completely frozen. To be honest, these are so good, why wait for a BBQ!
