Keeping cool: Home made icy poles

Where I live we experienced a major heat wave last week-the worst for 100 years. It got to over about 45 degrees celsius (about 115 F). There were alot of power black outs due to heat. I've heard reports that people's pets have died, particularly rodents, birds and rabbits and a co-worker had to leave work due to fire risk around her home.
Green renters will be looking at ideas for keeping cool over the next few months.
Here's a couple of my icy pole recipes for keeping cool:

Vodka icy poles:

-fruit of choice. I have tried watermelon and pineapple.

Blend all ingredients and freeze in a mould or plastic cup. If you can't wait and must consume, go right ahead.

Lazy person's icy pole:


-vodka or gin
-store bought icy pole (aka iced lolly)


Pour a generous quantity of liquor into a cold glass.
Add icypole.
Mush together.
Eat with a spoon.
