Cosmopolitan Jelly with Mixed Berries

This is a lovely and rather decadent way to use all the gorgeous berries that are in season, but there's nothing to stop you from making it year-round with whatever fruit you like.


  • 3 gelatine leaves

  • 300ml (10 ½fl oz) cranberry juice

  • 75g (2 ½oz) sugar

  • 100ml (3 ½fl oz) vodka

  • 100ml (3 ½fl oz) cointreau

  • 75ml (2 ½fl oz) lime, strained

  • 120g (4 ¼oz) blueberries

  • 250g (8 ¾oz) mixed berries such as redcurrants, strawberries, raspberries cherries etc

  • mint leaves to garnish

  • 200g (7 ¼oz) greek yoghurt


  • 1.

    Soak the gelatine sheets in cold water for 10 minutes then rinse in a sieve under cold water.

  • 2.

    Pour half the cranberry juice and the sugar into a small saucepan. Heat gently until the sugar has just dissolved, then add the gelatine and allow to melt into the liquid.

  • 3.

    Next pour the remaining cranberry juice, vodka, Cointreau and lime into a large jug or bowl. Strain the gelatine through a sieve into jug to make sure there is no un-dissolved gelatine.

  • 4.

    Take four cosmopolitan glasses and divide the blueberries between them, then pour a quarter of the liquid into each glass.

  • 5.

    Place into the fridge and leave to set for 3-4 hours or overnight. To serve, pile berries on top of each jelly and finish with a mint sprig. Serve with spoonfuls of Greek yoghurt.
