  • 1 box unflavored powdered gelatin red or clear
  • red food color if using clear gelatin
  • 200 ml lychee syrup (from canned lychees)
  • 100 ml gin
  • 100 ml lime cordial
  • whole lychees
  • olive slices


  • Pour the gelatin into a bowl. Add the food color too if using clear gelatin.
  • Heat the lychee syrup to simmering and pour over the gelatin. Stir until the gelatin is dissolved.
  • Pour in the gin and lime cordial, stirring as you pour.
  • Pour the gelatin mixture into glasses. If the gelatin solidifies too fast at this point, heat gently in the microwave until pourable.
  • Push an olive slice in the natural groove of each lychee. Not too deep. You want the olive to be visible.
  • When the gelatin is barely set, carefully drop a lychee into each glass.
  • Serve the jello shots with floating eyeballs chilled.
