This tastes mainly of lemonade but the jelly creates a nasty globby and slimy texture, which your little terrors will love!  Simply swap to a red jelly if you would rather create a bloody thirst quencher.

you will need

  • 2 x 135g packets lime jelly
  • 150ml boiling water
  • 2 litres lemonade

Chop the jelly into little chunks and put into a measuring jug.

Add the boiling water.

Stir the jelly for about 30 seconds (you don’t want it to completely dissolve).

Pour the lemonade into a clear plastic jug and add the green jelly mixture and stir gently.

When you pour the liquid into glasses, use a ladle to scoop out some of the jelly globs and add a few to each glass.
