What could be a more perfect way to cool down whilst getting a little bit giggly in the sun than sucking on your favourite summer bevvy in lolly form?
Making this dream come true is hotel brand Novotel.
On 21 June, the brand is launching an exclusive collection of five alcohol-infused ice lollies: Aperol Spritz, Espresso martini, Crafe Ale, Frosé, and Gin&Tonic.
The lollies will be available in bars across the UK.
Aperol Spritz have been a fashionable summer drink in the UK for several years now
If you think ice lollies are just for kids, Novotel’s range will make you think again.
The delicious coolers have been crafted by the hotel brand’s mixologists and come in five juicy flavours, including Aperol Spritz and Espresso Martini.
Each lolly is priced at £2.50.
The lollies are only a little bit alcoholic compared to the real drinks, so you won’t feel woozy after having one.

The Aperol Spritz lolly is scrumptious, tangy and totally Instagramable.
While the Espresso Martini lolly has also caught our attention with its coffee bean crunch.
If you can’t find the lollies in bars near you, fear not – because they’re actually really easy to make yourself at home.
Here are the recipes for our two favourites.
