Mojito Jellies with Mango, Mint & Lime Sugar

Mojito Jellies with Mango, Mint & Lime Sugar. This refreshing dessert is the perfect adults-only treat to indulge in over the summer months after a great dinner with friends.

Serves 6

1 lime, zest and segments

2 cups white wine such as moscato

1 cup caster sugar, plus 2 tbsp extra

1 bunch mint

2 tbsp white rum, plus 1 tbsp extra

¼ cup lime juice

5½ titanium-strength gelatine leaves

1 tbsp finely grated lime zest

2 ripe mangoes, peeled, chopped into 1cm pieces

Remove zest from lime. Segment lime and reserve for serving.

Combine lime zest, wine, 1 cup water and 1 cup sugar in a medium saucepan over medium heat.

Bring to the boil, stirring to dissolve sugar. Simmer 1 minute. Add half the mint, including stalks; remove from heat, cover and set aside 30 minutes.

Strain mixture into a clean saucepan. Add white rum and lime juice; heat until hot.

Soak gelatine in a large bowl of cold water until soft. Squeeze out excess water and add to wine mixture, stirring to dissolve.

Cool mixture for 10 minutes. Transfer to a jug and pour mixture evenly between 6 cocktail glasses. Refrigerate for 4 hours or until set.

Remove leaves from remaining mint. In a small food processor combine
1 tablespoon lime rind, extra sugar and a small handful of the remaining mint leaves. Process until finely chopped.

In a small bowl combine mango, reserved lime segments, extra white rum and half the mint-and-lime sugar.

To serve, top jellies with mango salad and sprinkle with remaining mint-and-lime sugar.
