Has anyone tried making ice lollies using particular booze and tasted nice?

I was thinking of making some using cider, I assume lager ones wouldn't taste nice and strong spirits like vodka wouldn't freeze, what about gin and tonic ones? And I read somewhere to stir the cider before freezing it, would that make a big difference?

Vodka freezes fine if you mix it. I used to make Vodka and passion fruit lollies for barbecues.

Mix two thirds passion fruit juice and one third vodka before hand and the just pour it into the lolly moulds.

Vodka and chambord works well too but is a bit like frozen rocket fuel!

I don't have shares in them, honest!

You can buy cheap ones in pound shops so I might get some and try those vodka and passionfruit ones which do sound nice.

You can buy cider ones off the ice cream van, they taste nice, suppose they are just apple flavour really.

I was under the impression that alcohol didnt freeze in a standard domestic freezer, it requires lower temperatures,

I know that some people keep vodka in freezers to keep it cold, but it never freezes.

I use those ready mixed lime margarita bottles. pour into lolly moulds and freeze - lovely. For me the jose cuervo ones taste nicest - get them from tescos. I think they do a strawberry and lime one but not found any of that yet. Tried Sainsburys 'cosmopolitan' cocktails but they don't freeze quite right

At the strength it is neat (37.5 to 40%) it won't freeze, but if you dilute it down to 5-10% then it will freeze fine - just as beer or wine does if you put a bottle into the freezer to cool and then forget about it (done than too many times!)
