Ingredients

  • 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)

Directions

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 from heat, and stir in the gin and champagne. Pour into pan and chill until fully set, 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 jelly shot is easier to pop out of molds. ** Why flat champagne? Using flat champagne results in a cleaner looking jelly shot - otherwise the champagne foams and bubbles when poured into the pan, and can leave a foamy residue on the top of the jelly shots unless skimmed off before chilling.
