  • 1 475ml bottle Grace Tropical Rhythms Fruit Punch
  • 3 sachets (1 tablespoon) powdered gelatine
  • 120ml dark Caribbean rum
  • 16 teaspoons diced tropical fruits of choice – try pineapple, mango, papaya or passion fruit


1 In a saucepan, heat the fruit punch over a medium-high heat for 3 minutes then remove from the heat. Stir in the dark Caribbean rum and leave to cool.

2 Put 4 tablespoons of hot water in a bowl and stir in the gelatine. Leave to soak for 2-3 minutes and then place over a pan of simmering water and heat gently over a low heat until the gelatine is fully dissolved.

3 Leave to one side and once cooled, mix with the fruit punch mixture, whisking thoroughly, and then divide the mixture evenly into small dessert bowls or shot glasses.

4 Place in the fridge to cool and for the jellies to set. Once set, top with chopped pieces of your favourite tropical fruits and serve.
