Joe & Seph's Gin & Tonic Mess

This is a really simple and indulgent dessert! Try adding some Joe & Seph's Popcorn for an extra texture too. Thanks to @drinkginandbake for this Weird & Wonderful creation!
2 hours 50 minutes
Serves 4


  • 1 x 80g Bag of Joe & Seph’s Gin & Tonic Popcorn
  • 8 x Sponge Fingers
  • 250g Fresh Raspberries
  • 60ml Gin
  • 1 x tbsp Caster Sugar
  • 300ml Double Cream
  • 70g Cream Cheese or Mascarpone
  • 1/4 tsp Vanilla
  • 1 x tbsp Icing Sugar
  • 1/2 Jar Lime or Lemon Curd


  1. Combine raspberries, gin and 1tbsp sugar

    1. In a bowl, pop the raspberries, gin and 1 tbsp of caster sugar.

  2. Leave for 2 hours

    2. Gently stir and allow to soften for 2 hours.

  3. Drain mixture

    3. After 2 hours, drain the raspberries keeping the remaining liquid (you'll need it later!). Leave a few raspberries in the sieve pushing them through with a wooden spoon into the gin mix.

  4. Layer gin soaked fingers in glasses

    4. Lay out 4 glasses, dip your sponge fingers into the gin and layer into your glasses (make sure they are evenly soaked).

  5. Leave to soak

    5. Allow to soak for 10mins while you whip the cream.

  6. Whisk cream, vanilla and icing sugar

    6. Pop the cream, vanilla and icing sugar in a bowl and whisk until thickened and just about holding shape.

  7. Add cream cheese

    7. Soften the cream cheese using the back of the wooden spoon and fold into the cream.

  8. Layer raspberries, curd, popcorn and cream on fingers

    8. On top of the sponge fingers, add a few of the gin-soaked raspberries, a couple of little dollops of the curd, a few Joe & Seph’s Gin & Tonic Popcorn kernels, then a spoonful of cream.

  9. Repeat

    9. Continue layering the process until you’ve used up all your mixture.

  10. Serve

    10. Serve immediately so the popcorn still has a delicious crunch!

I made these a summer treat and enjoyed them. Light and very fruity with a subtle gin kick!
