Pimms Jellies

Pimms Jellies

There’s not a drink in the world that says summer to me more than Pimms. Although to be honest I’ll happily drink it all year round. I’m partial to a jelly too – they’re so easy to make, especially if you’re catering for a dinner party or such like as they can be done in advance and whipped out at the last minute. Making them alcoholic is a naughty adult twist and for me what better flavours than those of Pimms. This recipe makes 4 servings, but you could easily increase and decrease the quantities to what you need.

  • 200ml Pimms
  • 600ml lemonade
  • 6 sheets gelatine
  • 12 strawberries, greenery removed and halved
  • cucumber slices and mint leaves to garnish

  1. Mix the pimms and lemonade. Put into a saucepan and warm through, do not let it boil, it needs to be warm only otherwise the heat will deactivate the gelatine
  1. Cover the gelatine in cold water for a few minutes so it softens 3. Remove the pimms from the heat. Drain the gelatine and add to the liquid, stirring until melted. 4. To get the effect of fruit ‘floating’ in the jelly, they need to be set in 2 or 3 stages. So take a third of the strawberries and place in each of the glasses or moulds, then top with a third of the mixture. Put in the fridge until just set. 5. Repeat step 4 twice more. 6. Top with fresh strawberries, mint and cucumber and serve Happy eating 🙂 PImmscollage DSC_0001 DSC_0008 DSC_0012 DSC_0002 If you enjoyed this and want to try your hand at more alcoholic jellies how about this Mojito Jelly from The Crafty Larder

    Not a big fan of Pimms to drink but I did choose a Pimms jelly and cucumber sorbet when I went out for a meal last week and it was very good. I think I shall have to consume Pimms in jelly form every summer now 🙂

    Such a great idea, and I love how you have decorated them with the fruit. I am so going to make these. Jelly makes alcohol even more fun 🙂
