  1. Lightly grease a 25cm bundt tin or ring mould with sunflower oil.
  2. Put the lemon zest into a large saucepan with 300ml of cold water and bring to the boil.
  3. Revmoe from the heat and add the jelly cubes, stirring until completely melted. Add the tonic water and the gin, stirring gently. Pour the mixture into the tin and allow to cool to room temperature, about 20 mins.
  4. Put into the fridge and chill for 1½ -2hrs until beginning to thicken and slightly set, but still liquid. Push the sliced tangerines into the jelly, so that the flat cut sides are against the bottom and the sides of the tin. Chill for 3hrs or overnight until firm to the touch.
  5. To serve, dip the base of the mould in warm water for 10 seconds to loosen. Put a serving plate over the top and carefully flip to release the jelly onto the serving plate.
  6. Decorate the top of the jelly with small mint leaves and pomegranate seeds and keep refrigerated until ready to serve.
  7. Serve with the pouring cream.
