Don’t these look cool? They are Jello Cocktails. I love it!
Recommended Pan: Standard Loaf Pan (approximately 8” x 4”)
1/3 cup lemonade concentrate (strained to remove solids)
1/3 cup water
2 envelopes Knox gelatin *
2/3 cup gin (Mr. M. suggests Gordons or Bombay Sapphire)
2/3 cup flat champagne, prosecco or other white sparkling wine **
1 tsp sugar (if desired)
Lemon zest garnish, if desired (we prefer these to be
ribbon-y and just for looks)
Combine lemonade concentrate and water in saucepan (and sugar if using).
Sprinkle with gelatin and allow to soak for a minute or two. Heat over very low heat,
stirring constantly, until gelatin is fully dissolved (approximately 5 minutes). Remove
heat, and stir in the gin and champagne. Pour into pan and chill until fully set,
for several hours or overnight.
To serve, cut into desired shapes. Garnish with lemon zest.
Makes 18 to 24 shots.
* Note: if using a flexible silicon mold, as shown above, add 1/2 envelope additional
gelatin (1/2 envelope equals about a teaspoon of gelatin powder). A slightly firmer
jello shot is easier to pop out of molds.
