  • silicone mold


  • 1/2 cup mint leaves fresh
  • 1/2 cup sugar + 1 teaspoon
  • 1 1/2 cup water
  • 1/2 cup lime juice
  • 3 drops green food coloring
  • 2 envelopes unflavored gelatin
  • 1 cup Jameson Irish Whiskey
  • fresh additional mint leaves for garnish


  • Place fresh mint leaves in a small dish. Sprinkle with 1 teaspoon of sugar. Using a muddle stick or a wooden spoon, press down on the leaves and twist. Repeat the action several times until the mint leaves release oil and smell minty. Set aside.
  • Pour water and lime juice into a medium sauce pan. Sprinkle gelatin powder over the water; whisk to combine and let stand 5 minutes.
  • Add 1/2 cup of sugar and the muddled mint leaves to the pan. Whisk to combine. Cook mixture over medium-high heat for 5 minutes, whisking gently until mixture is hot and the sugar and gelatin are dissolved. Remove from heat and allow to cool for 15 minutes.
  • Strain the liquid to remove the mint leaves. Return liquid to the pan and add the whiskey. Add green dye.
  • Spray silicone molds with cooking spray to allow easy release after gelatin is set. Wipe the excess spray from the molds. Carefully pour liquid into the molds.
  • Refrigerate for at least 3 hours, until fully set.
  • Remove from molds and place on tray or small appetizer plates. Garnish with mint leaves, or edible gold stars!
