The 78 (St. Germaine, champagne, grapefruit juice - our version of the oft-riffed French 75) The Bramble (Lemon, gin, flavored gelatin, blackberry liqueur)
These Lemon Drop Jello Shots were a huge success at our football tailgate this weekend. Everyone was so surprised at the presentation and how great they tasted. So, as promised here's the info for how to make these fun little treats. Lemon Drop Jello Shots - 8 large lemons - 2 packages lemon Jello (3 oz each) - 1 cup boiling water - 1 cup citrus vodka - 1/2 cup lemon juice - 1/2 cup ice cold water Cut the lemons in half lengthwise. Squeeze the lemon juice out into a separate container and set aside.
[Editor's note: Following the wonderful POM event last week and the New York City Wine and Food Festival , which POM was a proud sponsor in joining the fight to end childhood hunger by supporting Share our Strength and the Food Bank for NYC , we decided to use POM to make awesome recipes! Here's the first... looks delish!] This recipe is not just your average jello shot — I want you to think jello shot with a touch of class and elegance. We’re adults now people. No more jello shots from dixie cups.
Jello is one of those all American desserts that has been around forever. Don’t we all have fond Jello salad memories? The origin of Jello dates back to 1845 when Peter Cooper patented a product set with gelatine. In 1897 Pearle Wait expanded on the idea, with the hope of marketing it.
Margarita? Yes, please! In jello form? What a great idea! These cute and boozy little dessert treats took less than 10 minutes to prepare, and tasted just like margaritas.
I made these for our New Years Eve Party (with left over oranges and cherry jello we had in the pantry) and they were a huge hit. Who doesn't love jello shots? Brings me right back to college. Unfortunately dixie cups don't exactly look elegant alongside fancy cheese plates and party napkins. Not to mention the pink or blue stain on your finger all night from extracting.
O r Jell-O shots. Whichever way you call it, Edible Cocktails are quirky. From seeing them wiggle on the platter, tilting your head back and throwing one down, to licking the stickiness from your fingers, you will agree that these gel cocktails will bring smiles to your guests’ faces. But don’t let these childhood-like treats fool you, they have a bite and will sneak up on you if you have a few too many.
Rainbow Jelly Shooter Its been a whirlwind at the test kitchen. The book is progressing (crossing fingers that it is going to press in early December!) , we have been working on a little something (three little somethings, actually) for Saveur.com , and about a million more actions items cropping up here and there, many of which have not received appropriate attention and are currently housed in a bin marked "anxiety provoking".
A row of Bramble Jelly Shots, a la Toby Cecchini, beckons . . . I have been dying to have a go at the Bramble Jelly Shot recipe since it first appeared on the NYT blogs in March of this year! A Bramble cocktail is quite divine - a lemon sour base, gin, and a float of blackberry liqueur. The Bramble's translation to gelatin was conducted by noted cocktail expert/bartender/author Toby Cecchini, who also wrote the NYT piece.
