INGREDIENTS

For the mojito syrup:

  • 1 ½ cups water
  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • 2 limes, quartered
  • ¼ cup lime juice
  • 1 cup mint leaves

For the jelly shot:

  • 1 ¼ cups mojito syrup
  • 2 envelopes Knox gelatin
  • 1 cup white rum
  • 2 teaspoons finely chopped fresh mint leaves, plus additional for garnish

DIRECTIONS

For the mojito syrup:

Combine water, sugar, limes, lime juice, and mint in a medium saucepan and bring it to a boil; reduce heat to low and simmer for five minutes. 

Remove pan from heat, and allow mixture to cool to room temperature before straining.

For the jelly shot:

Pour the mojito syrup into a medium saucepan and sprinkle with the gelatin. Allow the gelatin to soak for a minute or two.

Heat over low heat, stirring constantly, until gelatin is fully dissolved, about 5 minutes. Remove from heat and stir in rum and chopped mint. Pour the mixture into a 1-pound loaf pan and refrigerate until fully set, several hours overnight.

To serve, cut into desired shapes. Garnish with chopped fresh mint as desired.
