This is a beautifully refreshing summer dessert. I’ve always been a fan of Pimm’s – it reminds of balmy nights, family BBQs and tennis – and this captures all of those memories in a silky jelly. Note: it should go without saying, but this dessert is adults only!
Ingredients (makes 6)
⅓ cup caster sugar
6 platinum-strength gelatin leaves
1 cup Pimm’s No. 1 Cup
2 cups lemonade
Handful of mint leaves
Soak the gelatin in cold water for 5 minutes.
Place sugar and 1 cup of water in a medium saucepan over low heat, stirring until the sugar is totally dissolved.
Squeeze the excess water from the gelatin leaves and add to the sugar liquid, stirring until dissolved. Remove from heat.
Add the Pimm’s and lemonade to the saucepan, stirring until combined.
Divide evenly between 6 serving glasses, cover with clingfilm and refrigerate for at least 4 hours or until set.
Serve with mint leaves, orange slices, chopped strawberries and cucumber ribbons. Enjoy!
