Want a fruity, boozy taste of summer? Then look no further than my Pimm’s Jelly Sundae!
Refreshing, delicious, and fat-free, these desserts are perfect for barbecues, dinner parties and lazy summer afternoons. They’re easy, taste as gorgeous as they look and minutes to make. Have I said enough?! Okay, one more perk is the fact that it involves Pimm’s for crying out loud!
- 1 pack of lemon jelly
- 3/4 pt of lemonade
- 5 large strawberries, or 10 small ones
- 10 grapes
- a handful of blueberries
- 1 orange
Make up your lemon jelly by using 1/4 pt of boiling water, and 3/4 pt of lemonade.
While the jelly is cooling, wash and prepare your fruit, and divide it between individual glasses.
Now it’s time for the main event…All hail Pimms!
Add a one cap and a drop more of Pimms to the fruit…
then add your fizzy jelly.
Now your jelly, Pimms, and fruit need to be acquainted with each other, so use the sprigs of mint to give it a stir, then leave the mint in the jelly for about 30 – 60 seconds.
Now they’re ready for the fridge. If your fridge is rubbish like my mum’s, you’ll need these to set for a good seven or eight hours, if it’s fierce like my one at uni was, five hours should do it.
Ta-Dah! Summer in a glass.
Garnish with mint, and serve.
If you fancy making this a bit naughty, serve with a dollop of creamy vanilla ice cream.
Now that’s more like it.
A perfect dessert to give to your in-laws/boss/anyone you want to like you, because once they’ve tasted this, they’ll be wanting to see you a lot more!
Feel free to use different fruit, but not kiwi, papaya or fresh pineapple (tinned is fine), as the water molecules in these fruits prevent the jelly from setting, and will result in wasting Pimms.
Summer is finally here, Britain (for now)!
