    This might be improved by making it into a tea pop
    first

    Just an idea

    I tried the tea pop idea, however it tasted awful
    Going to try this recipe though! Is grenade syrup needed though or can I make do without it?
    Thanks! Tea all the way

      Hey there! You can try without grenadine syrup but it will alter the taste of the recipe 🙂

    Just made this, and it turned out great! I put a bit more nice cream (vegan ice cream) than recommended, because I found the vodka was a bit strong, but will definitely make this again!
