Ice Lolly made from Holy water and absinthe goes on sale

A 'sinful' ice lolly has gone on sale - mixing holy water with mind-bending 80 per cent absinthe.

The gun-shaped green popsicle, dubbed the 'Vice Lolly,' consists of one part alcohol and three parts water from a spring in Lourdes, France, which many Catholics believe has healing powers. The Vice Lolly, which costs £18.58, has gone on sale at controversial The Icecreamists shop in London's Covent Garden. Owner Matt O'Connor, 45 from Andover in Hampshire, hit headlines in February last year when he began selling ice cream made from breast milk.
