Emily’s bridal shower is next week and I wanted to try a fun, fancy, grown-up jello shooter for the party so I made these yesterday as a trial run. They were good…plenty of vodka, good taste, but they were very time-consuming (as anyone who has made layered jello very well knows). The invite and all the other stuff I’ve made for the shower is red and aqua, so I was stoked on myself for mixing lime and blueberry jello to get just the right aqua color. Ha.
So these are layers of cherry jello, the lime and blueberry mixture, and condensed milk with gelatin. All three layers have a decent amount of vodka too. Packs a nice little punch for a shot.
Anyway, I don’t think I’m going to make these next weekend because I frankly don’t have the time to do all the layering with only one set of molds. But I’m going to try another version I found that hopefully will be just as cute.
RECIPE: GROWN-UP JELLO SHOOTERS
Here’s the recipe for these vodka jello shooters.
Basically, you pour one layer in and put it in fridge to set up. Then you pour the next layer and let it set up. Repeat in strips until you get to the top of the mold. Each layer takes between 5-8 minutes. You can’t add the next layer too soon because the layers will mix together. But you can’t wait too long because then the layers won’t stick together. I really feel for all the moms who make this treat for their kids. Without the vodka of course. Ha.
