A lovely and simple way to jelly and gin away this summer heatwave in queen-like bliss…
Buy a lemon jelly. Put it in a pint glass jug in the microwave with a quarter of the recommended water.
Ping it on full power until the jelly has melted and stir it around.
Here’s the fun bit; add some ice cubes, about four or five, a good amount of gin to taste and top up with tonic water to just under a pint.
Pour into pretty cocktail glasses and leave to set. Serve decorated with a slice of lemon, maybe a swirl of cucumber…and a heart spoon!
P.S. for pint also read 0.5 litre
P.S.S. If you haven’t got a microwave, place the jelly and water as above in a smallish saucepan and bring to a slow boil, stirring until its dissolved
Thank you once again to Ingrid Spiegl of Scouse press in Liverpool for this beautiful recipe. Just what we need at the mo!
