This low-cal Pimm's jelly is a refreshing twist on the classic Pimm's No. 1, perfect on a hot summer's day.


  • 165ml Pimm's No. 1
  • 510ml water
  • 4 leaves of gelatine
  • 2 tbsp sweetener
  • Juice from 1 lemon
  • 45 ml orange juice
  • 20g cucumber, diced
  • 18 mint leaves
  • 2 medium oranges, peel and pith removed and cut into segments
  • 6 strawberries, sliced

For the garnish:

  • 6 strawberries, halved
  • 6 mint sprigs


  1. Put 4 tbsp of water in a dish and allow the gelatine to soak.
  2. Heat the remaining water. When hot but not boiling, add the gelatine and liquid and leave to melt. When the gelatine has dissolved, add half the sweetener and mix thoroughly.
  3. Add Pimm's, lemon and orange juice then strain into a bowl. Leave to cool at room temperature.
  4. Prepare the oranges, slicing away the skin and pith. Segment the oranges and dice the flesh.
  5. Just before pouring, add the remaining sweetener. Half fill 6 glasses or bowls of approximately 200ml capacity with the Pimm's mixture. Add some of the orange pieces, diced cucumber and strawberry slices.
  6. Put the glasses in the fridge for approximately 1 hrs or until the jelly sets, then pour on the remaining Pimm's mixture. Add the rest of the orange, strawberries and cucumber and 3 mint leaves to each glass. Allow to set completely in the fridge. Serve topped with a strawberry and mint sprig.
