Him: what are you making?
Me: Gelee de Mojito
Him: translation?
Me: I don't know, kind of like Mojito jello but not the packet thingie
Him: then why don't you call it that ?
Me: be glad I did not call it "aspic"
Him: sounds like it could hurt
Me: not funny, I did not write the culinary language of my country, allright?!
Him: so what is this...really...?
Me: how about Mojito Jelly-O ?!

Almost every weekend we gather with the neighbors outside by the creek. Rain or shine, hot or cold. Same backyard all those years...don't know how that happened, it just did. One Saturday evening three years ago, we were all chatting outside when I said "I'd better go check on my cake", C. said "I'd better go check on the chili" and J. said "I think the boy is bringing oysters"....and the rest is history: the men set out a long wood plank on saw horses outside and we all brought down what was in the oven or on the stove that evening and shared, grown up beverages and good laughs included.

We can't always get together on the weekends because of holidays and guests, etc...Foods vary with the season and the sea but when we do you can be sure of one constant: C's jello-shooters....don't ask me why, but she made it her duty to provide a different one each time. Except that this weekend she passed the baton on to me when I said that we should have Mojitos instead for cocktails given the massive quantity of mint I have growing. I am not a big jello shooter fan (heck! Ask any fellow expat if they know the packet brand and unless they have been here before, they will probably look at you funny), but I know it's her thing so I tried to come up with a Mojito Jelly-O instead of just a cocktail.

Obviously, if you do not like gelatin based dessert you will not like this one and if you do not like Mojitos or alcohol, you will probably have to pass too, but if you do.....for all of you ready for the weekend, these will make you very very happy! I had to take a few bites for the pictures and I got very relaxed at eleven in the morning which makes me think that tonight is going to be very good!

For the jelly, I'll let you pick your own brand of white rum and you can replace the gelatin with agar agar or vegetarian gelatin if available. I am not an expert on the agar but from what I have found prior to posting this, it seems that the same quantity would work instead of the gelatin, but don't take my word for it.

Serve 4
Printable Recipe

5 limes (1/2 cup juice)
1/2 cup mint (3-4 twigs)
1 Tb gelatin
1/2 cup water divided
1/4 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup white rum
1 1/4 cups lemonade (non carbonated)

Pour the gelatin in a small ramequin and sprinkle 1/4 cup of water over it. Allow it to dissolve, set aside.
Zest one of the limes, set the zest aside, juice all the limes to obtain about 1/2 cup. Squeeze another one if necessary to obtain 1/2 cup. Set aside. Chop the mint finely and set aside.
In a medium saucepan set over medium high heat, combine the remaining 1/4 cup of water and sugar bring to a boil just until the sugar is dissolved. Remove from the heat and add the gelatin, stirring until it is completely dissolved. Add the rum, lime juice, lemonade and the mint.
Pour in 4 glasses or ramequins and let set in the refrigerator for 4 hours or overnight. Decorate with mint and lime slices if desired.

Neat idea. Your directions say to

"Pour the water in a small ramequin and sprinkle 1/4 cup of water over it."

Did you mean to sprinkle 1/4 cup of brown sugar over it?

Thanks for all the delicious and creative ideas you have on your blog. Truly jealous of your talent.

Tartelette said...

Did not notice how "effective" these were:
water+gelatin in the ramequins and water and sugar in the saucepan.
Thanks for alerting me!
Baking is really within your reach, just take a step back and a deep breath :)

Lydia (The Perfect Pantry) said...

That's the classiest jello I've ever seen!

Dana McCauley said...

I'm a big fan of the edible cocktail I think they should be a food group!


Kidding aside, tony bars in LA and London are (like you) giving jell-o shots a wonderful new image.

Vera said...

I know these will definitely make me happy!

Stella (Sweet Temptations) said...

this looks so fresh & uber tropical, I love your snapshots Helene:)

Kristen said...

I'm looking to move to the Coastal Living lifestyle. You are my kind of neighbor. Any houses for sale? :)Need another foodie to move in next door?

Rosa's Yummy Yums said...

That's a wonderful idea! Very summery, refreshing, exotic and really delicious!

Cheers,

Rosa

cath said...

Hummm...! It sounds DE-LI-CIOUS !

Colloquial Cook said...

I love the line 'aspic? It sounds like it could hurt'

Tarantino ne désavouerait pas!!!

Eva said...

Hey, I want to live in your neighbourhood! In my apartment block, people hardly say hello to each other... But of course, first and foremost I'd come to taste your desserts..;-)

Christy said...

I envy you living in a place where there's such a strong community feel..I live in an apartment in the city, so no backyards, no creeks and no one to share the spoils of an afternoon of baking. sigh...that mojito jelly alone wishes that I live next by your house...

Nina's Kitchen (Nina Timm) said...

I can relate to the plank on saw horses - someone has to start the idea and your neighbors catch on pretty quickly. I fall in the No-alcohol group, but I do like your pics

Peter M said...

In high school (who am I kidding, we still do it), we'd make and drink jello spiked with booze and call them Electric Jello. It's all now blur...

Baking Soda said...

So, this is about a cocktail to be eaten with a spoon? Or do you drink it? Eh, strange? The pic looks great but I do have some reservations, maybe I should just try.

Rachel@fairycakeheaven said...

Heaven in a glass!!! and yes heaven to me will taste like Mojitos!!! Had an amazing mojito at a food festivel in Dublin last weekend and have been thining about then since, must get out the gelatine!!!

kellypea said...

*hick* Sounds totally cooling...and probably go down a lot more slowly than a liquid mojito. Slurp.

Mike of Mike's Table said...

I'm all for mojitos, so this looks like a fun treat for the weekend and like Lydia said, a very classy looking jello!

noble pig said...

How awesome this is...I love the story too!

RecipeGirl said...

I have copied this for our upcoming beach vacation! They would be wonderful for the extended family (who like their alcohol!!) Thanks for a fun post!

Zen Chef said...

Oh niice!
It's true that 'aspic' sounds like it could hurt. I can imagine headlines like.. "The aspic killer strikes again!" hehe.
Une merveille comme d'hab! :-)

Jen Yu said...

Helen, I could use one of these right now. I will trade you one of my panna cottas for a mojito jello :) I love the aspic joke - a kitchen should be full of laughter as well as good food! xxoo

That Girl said...

This is such a brilliant idea! At a certain age it's kinda weird to bring out a tray of dixie cups at BBQ, but this way looks like something they'd serve you at a 4 star restaurant!

Peabody said...

Yum! I made that Prosecco Jello and it was surprisingly tasty so I bet this is along those lines. What a refreshing dessert for Summer.

Aran said...

I need one of these after our nightmare of a camping trip!

Josh & Karale said...

what a neat idea! we've got quite a bit of mint growing this summer and i may just have to give this a try! beautiful pics!

Marc @ NoRecipes said...

Jello shots remind me of college. This looks like a grownup version. Yumm:-)

Dear Tartelette,

With lemonade you mean lemonade made from lemons or with a lemon taste, right? In The Netherlands, lemonade is a common name for all sorts of syrup that you can mix with water for a drink and they come in all sorts of flavours. I just want to make sure, because the recipe looks wonderful and I'm thinking of making it for our annual end-of-year party at work, but serve is slightly smaller portions though :)

Susan from Food Blogga said...

Oh, Helen, that shot on the blue plate is a stunner. "Don't take my word for it." But I take your word on everything. :)

Meeta said...

Now this is a hot jelly-o for us older kids! Love this idea!

kit said...

hello could i ask what camera do you use to take the shots of your creations? the photos look fab!

White On Rice Couple said...

Yo! Yo! Bravo for Jello-O!
OMG, that rhymes....I didn't mean for that to happen!
This is so fun! It's so perfect for summer and the sweltering heat that we've been experiencing lately!

diva said...

AH. i knew i had a reason for having gelatin around the house. this is next to be made. cheers for the recipe!

Mickie said...

I wish I would have seen this earlier today. They would have been perfect for my lazy Sunday. Guess I'll have to wait until next weekend. They look lovely!

Simply...Gluten-free said...

Those are super classy jello shots! Sounds fab!

Tartelette said...

Anonymous: you can use premade lemonade that comes already bottled up like Minute Maid or Tropicana, or make it yourself by and addif dugar to taste.

Patricia Scarpin said...

These look absurdly fresh, Helen! I can almost feel it from here.

Brianne said...

Jeez Helen, you sure do know how to make a person want to run away from work to bake/concoct something "right now!" :) Thank you once again for a refreshing glimpse of how life should be. All the best, Bri

Joy the Baker said...

What is this!? Fancy French Dessert meets Jello Shots!? I think I may be falling in love. This sounds like a must have at my next party!

Lori said...

Leave it to you to bring Mojito and jello shots to a whole new level. Very nice. Very refreshing. Mint sure is a rampid one huh?

Jaime said...

the mojito is one of my favorite drinks! great idea!

Marianna said...

wow, this is awesome! I have been checking your new posts almost on a daily basis...but I'm going through a completely blogging-procrastination period (including not posting on my own blog) so I'm admiring your recipes & photos in silence :-) Everything is absolutely beautiful & delicious looking!

RecipeWorld said...

I was just talking about Jell-O shots today! I've never made them but want to try them, since I think they're the quintessential American college food. Mojito ones sound great!

Stoo said...

alright, i tried it with agar agar last night so here's my experience (bear in mind that I have only used agar a few times so it may be possible to get very different results).

I followed the recipe exactly - I had read that agar was a bit stronger than gelatin but had also read that you could do a straight substitution, and with the acidity of this dessert I thought that was a safe option. So i added the agar to the sugar syrup and continued heating until it had dissolved which is the usual agar instructions. It was already noticeably thickening so I thought that was good.

Then I added the lime and rum and it was fine, then the lemonade... this caused it to fizz up and the liquid became lumpy - i guess maybe the carbonation of the lemonade made it form into small bits? i kept whisking it and it subsided a little but was still not smooth, so i used a stick blender which helped, but it still ended up a bit lumpy (not bad though).

Perhaps american lemonade isn't bubbly? In australia we use "lemonade" for sprite-kind drinks but i think americans use lemonade for lemon-flavoured drinks. Also, i think the limes I used were strong because it was a bit overbearing overall (and i love sour!). But a big success when served with a bit of icecream to smooth it out and give a bit of contrast.

Christina said...

Hey Helen, how thick is the consistency when chilled completely? Would I need to add more gelatin to make it of a Jello shot consistency?
