Easy-breezy frozen cocktails to help you chill out on a hot summer’s day

Orange Cream Floats (Serves 8)

  • 940ml vanilla ice cream
  • 475ml orange juice, freshly squeezed
  • 475ml club soda
  • 235ml vodka
    Chill eight glasses in the refrigerator for at least 30 minutes. Scoop the ice cream and divide evenly among the chilled glasses. Top with the orange juice, club soda and vodka.

Berry White Pops (Makes 7)

  • 96g sugar
  • 235ml white wine
  • 1tbsp Cointreau
  • 4tsp fresh lemon juice
  • 130g fresh berries
    Stir the sugar in 235ml hot water until dissolved. Mix in the wine, Cointreau and lemon juice. Divide the berries (such as blueberries and thinly sliced strawberries) among seven paper cups. Pour the wine mixture into the cups. Cover the cups with foil, and then insert a craft stick into the centre of each pop. Freeze for at least eight hours or overnight. (For kid-friendly frozen pops, simply replace the wine and Cointreau with berry-flavoured yoghurt).

Frozen Margaritas (Serves 1)

  • 50ml tequila
  • 25ml triple sec or Cointreau
  • 25ml lime juice
  • 15ml sugar syrup
    Put all the ingredients plus a large handful of ice in a blender and blitz until smooth. Tip into a cocktail glass, garnish with a wedge of lime and serve. (When blood oranges are in season – or you can get blood orange juice in a carton – make this with 50ml tequila, 25ml lime juice, 25ml blood orange juice and 15ml sugar syrup. If you like bitter-sweet drinks, add a dash of Campari.)
