To make this non-alcoholic, you could use a plain orange jelly or use 450ml lemonade mixed with orange food colouring and set it with 5 gelatine leaves.
We recommend starting this recipe at least 24 hours – preferably 2 days – ahead. Don’t be frightened off, though: most of the time is spent setting. The cheesecake needs to set for at least 6 hours, or preferably overnight, before being topped with jelly. The jelly itself will also need to set for at least 6 hours or overnight.
You can buy ready-made sugar syrup (sometimes known as gomme) in supermarkets, or make your own with equal amounts of caster sugar and cold water – heat to a simmer, then stir to dissolve the sugar, Homemade syrup keeps in the fridge for up to 3 months. Use in cocktails or for steeping fruit mixed with alcohol.
