Ingredients

  • Plums – If you can’t find canned plums in the store, you can substitute the syrup with 1 cup of water and 1/2 cup of sugar. Stew the plums in the sugar syrup for 15 minutes in a saucepan on medium heat until the sugar is fully dissolved and the plums are softened. Adjust the sweetness as needed.
  • Gin – A spiced gin is a perfect pairing for juicy plums. You can omit it for an alcohol-free version.
  • Cinnamon – Ground cinnamon adds depth and warmth to the plums and complements the cardamom in the gin.
  • Lemon – The lemon juice adds some freshness to the plums. You can add the zest of 1/2 lemon for a more zingy flavor.

Plum ice blocks in 3 easy steps

  1. Prepare the plums by removing the stones.
  2. Blend the plums with all other ingredients until smooth.
  3. Fill ice block molds or a sorbet container and freeze the mixture for up to 8 hours. Add ice block stick 1 hour into freezing.

Tips

  • Make sure you’re following the ratio of plums, syrup, and gin as gin can’t be frozen and the ice blocks won’t fully set if you use too much gin.
  • Freeze the blended plum mixture in a single freezer-proof container to enjoy as a granita, or sorbet.
  • Make a larger batch to enjoy this sweet, boozy treat throughout the summer.
