The Sun Lifestyle 25 days ago

FROZEN lolly or a lovely cold bevvy? On a hot day, it can be hard to decide.

But now you don’t have to, thanks to the invention of the boozy lollipop.

Telly wine expert Jilly Goolden helps test these boozy summer treats

The cocktails on sticks have been ­flying off shelves at supermarkets after ­Waitrose introduced them.

But which ’pop comes out top? Telly wine expert JILLY GOOLDEN tries some and rates them out of five.

Pimm’s – 4.3 per cent

  • £2.50 a box, Tesco
 13 pops equal one beer

Oliver Dixon

13 pops equal one beer

A rather strange browny pink colour. You can really taste the strawberry and mint but the Pimm’s is the least noticeable flavour.

It smells great.

Sun rating: 3

Lickalix Strawberry Mojito – three per cent

  • £5.99 a pack, Ocado — buy now
 13 pops equal one beer

Oliver Dixon

13 pops equal one beer

An iffy beetroot colour. The combination of ­flavours doesn’t work.

It’s like licking the ­bottom of a compost bin.

Sun rating: 0

Lickalix Pina Colada – 2.3 per cent

  • £5.99 a pack, Ocado — buy now
 17 pops equal one beer

Oliver Dixon

17 pops equal one beer

The coconut and ­Malibu shine through.

Sweeter than its namesake but if you like pina colada, you will love this.

Sun rating: 4

Pops Bellini – 3.8 per cent

  • £5.99 a box, Ocado — buy now
 10 pops equal one beer

Oliver Dixon

10 pops equal one beer

Tasty and quite similar to a bellini but not as fresh and luxurious.

More like a sweet counter version of the real thing.

A downgrade.

Sun rating: 2.5

Lic Frosé – eight per cent

  • £2.99, Waitrose
 Four pops equal one beer

Oliver Dixon

Four pops equal one beer

The strawberry rather contaminates good rosé. Too sweet and sugary.

I would rather just freeze a bottle of Mirabeau rosé myself.

Sun rating: 1.5

WINNER

Gianni’s Cosmopolitan – 4.7 per cent

  • £2.49 a box, Aldi
 Eight pops equal one beer

Oliver Dixon

Eight pops equal one beer

I love the candyfloss pink.

It tastes deceptively ­innocent and is sweet, like a rose petal-inspired shot.

Sun rating: 4.5
