COVERED PEAK BLOOD ORANGE JELLO SHOTS
Yes, we are adults here at Flooded Fox Den. But, these jelly shots are just insanely good! And why not? Life is short! This recipe is an adaptation from Bon Appetit that we brought to a friend’s house for a Super Bowl party and they were a hit. Change the juices to suit your style, like, for example, make these shots with pineapple or passion fruit juice for a Caribbean themed party. Turkey day games? Why not try these with apple cider or cranberry juice?
1 cup Covered Peak Vodka
3 tablespoons unflavored gelatin
½ cup fresh lemon juice
1 tablespoon orange-flavored liqueur, such as Cointreau
½ cup simple syrup
¼ cup Campari
1 teaspoon orange bitters
1 ¾ cups fresh blood orange juice
Bloom the gelatin in ¾ cups of water. Stir the rest of the liquids together except for ½ cup of the blood orange juice.
Meanwhile, stir vodka, lemon juice, simple syrup, Campari, bitters, and 1¼ cups blood orange juice in a large measuring glass.
Heat gelatin mixture and remaining ½ cup blood orange juice in a small saucepan over low, stirring to dissolve gelatin; add to vodka mixture. Strain into 2-oz. plastic cups; chill until set, at least 6 hours and up to 5 days. Cheers!
