A lovely friend of mine gave me a Jello Shot mould for Christmas, the mould came with a little book of recipes and since New Year is just around the corner, I thought I'd better get practising.
I had never made jello shots before, I decided to use Strawberry Jelly and Grey Goose Vodka for this batch as it felt like a safe combo. I was a little worried the jelly wouldn't set or worse still, the shots would set but I wouldn't be able to get them out in one piece! I needn't have worried, I left the jelly to set over-night and after a couple of minutes out of the fridge and a little shaking, the jello shots fell out perfectly.
Watch them wobble...
You don't really need a mould for these just fill normal shot glasses or indeed plastic ones.
1 pack of Jelly (Orange or Strawberry)
100ml Water (boiling)
50ml Water (cold)
Mix the jelly with the boiling water until the powder/block is fully dissolved, then add the cold water and vodka. Finally, place in the fridge for mixture to set.
Setting should take around 4 hours so be sure to factor this in to party plans.
Have an amazing New Year everyone and try to drink somewhat responsibly if you can.◦
