Blow Pop Martini Jello Shots

Your childhood favorite lolly transformed into an adult jello shot treat!

Ingredients

1/3
cup frozen lemonade concentrate (thawed and strained to remove solids)
2/3
cup water
2
envelopes unflavored gelatin
3/4
cup bubble gum flavored vodka
1
tablespoon sour watermelon liqueur
1
tablespoon sour apple liqueur
Neon food coloring, if desired
Lollipop sticks and mini cupcake wrappers for serving, if desired

Directions

  • 1 If using a flexible silicone mold to set the jello shots, prepare it by spraying lightly with cooking spray. Then wipe out each mold cavity thoroughly with a paper towel. This will leave a very slight residue which will aid in unmolding without affecting the taste or appearance of your jello shots. A glass or non-reactive metal standard 1 lb loaf pan, or two mini loaf pans, may also be used to set the jello shots. No prep needed for a pan.
  • 2 Pour lemonade concentrate and water into a small saucepan. 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). Stir in the vodka.
  • 3 Divide the mixture into two bowls. To one bowl add the sour watermelon liqueur, to the other, the sour apple liqueur.
  • 4 Add a drop of neon food coloring, if desired. (For example, use one drop of neon pink for the watermelon and one drop of neon green for the apple.)
  • 5 Pour into mixtures into pan or molds and chill until fully set, several hours or overnight.
  • 6 To serve, unmold (or if the jello shots are set in a pan, cut into desired shapes). Cut the lollipop sticks into approximately 1 1/2 inch segments. Immediately before serving, insert into each jello shot and place each jello shot in a mini cupcake wrapper.

Blow Pop Jelly Shots

As prepared by Jelly Shot Test Kitchen,

Nostalgic, candy-themed cocktails have been popping up all over – on restaurant and bar menus, and all over the web. High time for a little jelly shot experimentation!

Blow Pop Martini Jelly Shots have it all - a little sweet yet tart (from the lemonade and the sour fruit liqueur), with a lingering bubble gum note (from the bubble gum vodka) running through. For me, this is an improvement on the original lollipop (so much work to get to the bubble gum in the center - the best part!).

Given my fondness for bubble gum vodka, it pains me to say this, but should you have difficulty finding it, this recipe could be made with plain vodka or fruit-flavored vodka. I used green apple and watermelon sour fruit flavored liqueurs to flavor the jelly shots. The liqueurs come in many other “sour” flavors: berry, peach and grape, to name a few.

A flexible silicone mold was used to set the jelly shots. You could also use a flexible silicone mini muffin pan – these are available in most kitchen shops, or set the jelly shots in a standard 1 lb loaf pan (glass or non-reactive).

The recipe for Blow Pop Martini Jelly Shots was originally concocted for Jelly Shot Test Kitchen’s cooking segment on a local afternoon television show. The show was live, airing just before New Years Eve. Several local chefs and restaurant owners joined me in giving their spin on food and festivities.

The studio was so cold that the gelatin actually set up during the commercial break before my segment – I had to stir rock hard gelatin! The second goof: I dropped a jelly shot. Yikes, jelly shot overboard!



Cheers and XO,
