Red Ruby with Jackfruit in Coconut Milk

The whole dessert is a cocktail of shaken sweet fruits, assembled like jewels in a glass. You have glowing red chestnut gummies, fresh floral jackfruit, juicy bursts of pomegranate and sweet creamy coconut milk ribboning through the glass. For a trace of zesty sourness, hook a lime to the mouth of the glass and serve straight from the fridge to get a lovely chilled effect.
