I first saw these amazing creations whilst on holiday over the summer and thought they were the coolest things I had ever seen! I knew that as soon as we had nailed the recipe for normal Jelly Shots. I had to perfect this unique presentation and upload it for you guys as quickly as possible!
As you can see in the beautiful picture above, the effect is fantastic – and they’re so easy to make! The recipe below should make approximately 30 slices of ‘Watermelon’.
135g Packet of Hartley’s Raspberry Flavoured Jelly
280ml Boiling Water
100ml Chilled Vodka
180ml Chilled Water
Step 1 – Cut all of the Limes in half length ways.
Step 2 – Use a small knife to score around the edge of the pulp.
Step 3 – Scoop out the pulp with a small spoon and discard it.
Step 4 – Rinse and clean the remaining rinds then put them to one side.
Step 5 – Cut the tablet jelly into cubes.
Step 6 – Put the jelly cubes into a large bowl and add the boiling water.
Step 7 – Stir until all the jelly cubes have dissolved.
Step 8 – Add the vodka and cold water and stir again.
Step 9 – Pour the mixture into the Lime rinds, then put them in the fridge.
Step 10 – Once the jelly has set, cut the rinds in half again.
Step 11 – Add passionfruit seeds to make them look like fresh slices of watermelon!
Step 12 – For something different, try using lemon rind with different jelly flavours!
