Cuban Jelly Shots. Combine the delicious minty, cool refereshing Mojito with jelly.
Ingredients
  • 10 leaves of gelatine
  • 80cl sparkling water or soda water
  • 10cl white rum – Havana Club Añejo is my preferred choice
  • 9 tbsp brown sugar
  • Bunch of fresh mint – chopped finely
  • Juice of 4 limes
  • 2 limes finely sliced
Instructions
  1. Crush the mint in a cocktail shaker (or with a pestle and mortar).
  2. Add the rum, brown sugar and lime juice and shake thoroughly.
  3. Now add the sparking water and mix thoroughly.
  4. Strain the mixture, grinding the mint into the strainer to ensure that you get as much of the mint flavour as possible.
  5. Dissolve your gelatine leaves as per the instructions.
  6. Add and stir your Mojito mix into the gelatine.
  7. Pour into 5cl shot glasses, small paper cups or jelly or ice moulds. If you are using shot glasses or cups, fill them up ¾ of the way.
  8. Refrigerate for four to five hours until they are set.
  9. Garnish with chopped mint leaves and serve with a smile.
