elderflower gin & raspberry lollies

This weekend is set to be a scorcher. If you ask us, the best way to stay cool is of course, with a gin! Check out our super simple Queen Cleo Elderflower Gin & raspberry lollies.

In just a few minutes, and with some super simple ingredients you’ve got yourself a tasty treat that is just a little naughty, but oh so nice!

You’ll need

  • A silicon lolly mould for 6
  • A jug
  • Spoon or stirrer


  • A handful of raspberries
  • 50g caster sugar
  • 250ml tonic water
  • 50 – 75ml of Queen Cleo Elderflower Gin

Take your six-hole lolly mould and drop a few raspberries into each hole. In a jug, stir the gin, tonic and sugar until the sugar dissolves and the tonic loses its fizz. Divide between the moulds, push in the lolly sticks and freeze for at least 4 hrs, or preferably overnight.


After 4 years of being together we never thought that we would one day be in business together. Who knew where a simple text message could lead….

It all started with a conversation with Nicola at one of The Little Gin and Rum Company’s events in Leeds. Amy sent a message to Ian saying “Do you fancy buying a gin and rum company?” and the wheels were set in motion.



“As a sales professional travelling the UK and the world, I have made travelling and alcohol my thing.  With over 20 years experience supplying the hospitality industry with software and e-learning, I can’t wait to start sharing Queen Cleo Spirits with the industry I love.  You’ll usually find me with my favourite Queen Cleo Rum with ginger ale.”


“Where Ian loves sales, I love marketing and as a digital marketing trainer and professional public speaker, I always have a lot to say.  When Nicola and Emma started virtual events in lockdown, I jumped at the opportunity to talk about gin and rum and nearly 200 events later, I still love it.  Old Tom is my favourite tipple and I’ll even drink it neat with just a cube of ice and a squeeze of lime.”


Nicola and Emma have created a gin and rum legacy and we are honoured to take it into the future.   

We can’t wait to share our plans with you and we promise to make Queen Cleo proud.
