Mini Vodka and Blackberry Jellies

Print Friendly

Vodka glasses needn’t be just for drinking from, fill with this delicious softly set, fruity vodka jelly for a great party pud topped with softly whipped cream. This would make a fun dessert for parties, looks stunning, and isn’t too filling either.


Serves 8

Preparation time: 20 minutes
Cooking time: 5 minutes
Chilling time: 3-4 hours



225 g (8 oz.) blackberries

Grated rind and juice 1 lemon

75 g (3 oz.) caster sugar

200 ml (7 fl oz.) water

4 sheets leaf gelatine or 7 g (1/3 oz.)

6 tablespoons vodka

To decorate:

50 g (2 oz.) blackberries

1 tablespoon caster sugar

120 ml (4 fl oz.) double cream




Add the blackberries, lemon rind and juice, sugar and water to a medium sized saucepan, cover and cook gently for 5 minutes. Meanwhile add the gelatine sheets to a shallow dish, pour over cold water to just cover then leave to soak for 5 minutes.

Scoop the fruit out of the pan with a draining spoon and transfer to 8, 100 ml (3½ fl oz.) vodka shot glasses. Drain the gelatine and add the softened sheets to the warm fruit juice, stir until dissolved. Mix in the vodka. Pour over the fruit in the glasses, leave to cool then transfer to the fridge for 3-4 hours or until set.

When almost ready to serve make the blackberry cream by mashing the blackberries on a plate with the sugar, using a fork. Softly whip the cream in a bowl until it just holds its shape then fold in the blackberries until marbled together. Spoon over the set jellies and serve.
