Ooooh! Yum yum!
As we are celebrating in the sunshine this week, we thought we would come up with a little something special to do it in style. With our boutique looking beautiful, we are feeling pretty proud of ourselves and felt something a little more classy is in order...
Introducing our delicious Babycham Jelly!
For those who have not been blessed with knowledge of The Cham, Babycham is a sparkling wine which made its debut the 50's. Not only is this a classic of its day, it is absolutely adorable and we feel it is due a massive comeback! Ideal for our little soiree :)
This recipe is super delicious and can be made in two shakes of a fawns tail - just ensure you make it in advance as it will need at least 2 hours to chill.
So, to make 4 cups you will need:
500ml Babycham, 4 tablespoons water, 40g caster sugar
5 sheets of gelatin (you can use powdered gelatin instead, we found this way easier) and some yummy fruit - strawberries and raspberries are divine in this cup of joy!
First up take out your gelatin sheets and follow the preparation instructions. Ours says stick 'em in water for 5 minuets to soften then drain and squeeze dry (you can squeeze this stuff, it's mental!) Whilst you are waiting on that, you can prepare your fruit. Rinse, stalk and chop them, then place them in your jelly molds. We used a variety of vessels for ours - tea cups, cute glasses and jars add a fab kitsch twist to any party!
Next up, boil a pan of water and place a bowl over the top (bain-marie) melt the gelatine sheets with your 4 tablespoons of water and 40g sugar. Make sure to stir this gentally the whole time until melted; you don't want burnt jelly! Once all the lumps have gone, pour the mixture into the 500ml Babycham. Mix it in gently as you want your finished jelly to taste a fizzy!
Finally, pour into all of your fun glasses and chill until set...
Not only are these super cute, they are also delicious and still sparkling; simply darling!
