For Grown Up’s Only: Nigella’s Gin And Tonic Jelly

Grown Ups Only, Nigella's Gin ANd Tonic jelly

A little while ago, Lucy covered a great recipe for #FoodBloggerFriday, Gin and Tonic Cake from Pudding Lane. Well it seems that Gin could become a culinary ingredient, if it’s not already…

Nigella Lawson recently posted to Facebook a recipe for Gin and Tonic Jelly. Is this proof that Gin is getting more popular in the kitchen? Certainly not something you want to be serving at kids parties. However when it’s only adults at the table…happy days!

The recipe is straight forward and if you have made a jelly before then you won’t have any problems. If this is your first time, ensure you get the measurements correct and leave enough Gin for the recipe!

Full instructions can be found on Nigell’s recipe page. If you are going to give this a try, don’t forget to let us know how you get on!

Now what can you come with that uses a Vodka And Orange?
