Don’t Swim and Jell-O Shot At The Same Time

Warning:  These little shots are powerful!!  I’ve made them three times now, first using tequila instead of the vodka….way too much kick!  I then switched to vodka, so much better but used too much lime juice.  Last try, Citron Vodka andChambord, oh my…..

They are super easy to make and super easy to go down!  When I entertain I like to include little surprises, something fun and unexpected.  One of these refreshing, cool blue jiggly shots starts conversations and laughter flowing.  Two or more really gets the party dancing!

Blue Curacao and Citron Vodka Jell-O Shots

Adapted from Jello Shot Kitchen

¾ cup Citron Vodka

½ cup Blue Curacao

1/3 cup Chambord Liquor

2/3 cup water

2 envelopes Knox unflavored gelatin

1-2 tablespoons Agave, adjust to your sweetness preference

Pour water and Agave in a saucepan and sprinkle on the gelatin to soak in a few minutes.  Gently heat the water and stir to completely dissolve the gelatin.  Remove from the heat and add in the vodka, Curacao andChambord.  Pour into an 8×8 greased pan or a silicone brownie pan.  Refrigerate 4 hours or overnight to fully set.  Release from silicone or cut into squares.  Makes about 24 shots.

For an after dinner shot, try these Espresso Martini Shots!

I love being in the kitchen. Early mornings, soft music, a hot espresso. Easing into the preparation of delicious meals. Glancing through cookbooks, gathering inspiration and planning my day. I look forward to the cycles of the seasons, the pleasures of tasting and savoring and sharing this with those dear to me. Weekends are special to me as my week days are often rushed, but still I create the ambiance, light the candles, set the table and uncork the wine.
