Like a coffee shop caramel macchiato, but in boozy jelly shot form.
Secret: I used to think jelly shots were lame. Like a cranky old curmudgeon, I was literally like, “these newfangled Pinteresty recipes. Who ever actually makes these crazy things anyway?”
Of course, I got my granny panties in a bundle because I’d never tried them.
And lawwwd, honey. Jelly Shots aren’t a thing to complain about. They’re a thing to celebrate.
And this recipe is the finest way to welcome fall into your bloodstream. Your favorite coffee shot, caramel macchiato, turned into a triple-layer boozy treat in no time at all. Here’s how.
Start with caramel vodka. Some hot coffee or espresso. Unflavored gelatin. Sugar. Cream. It’s seriously that simple.
Now, just follow the recipe. You’ll whisk together Layer 1. It starts light, so it has an abundance of sweet cream all whisked in there.
Pop it in the fridge and let it set.
Then whisk together Layer 2. Easy! Fridge, set. Then Layer 3 and set.
Before serving, top it all with a bit of whipping cream. (Make your own if you have the time -- makes all the diff!)
And with that ... you have a whole batch of jelly shots just waiting to be spooned into your life.
Yay, jelly shots! Yay, coffee shop shots! Yay, sugar-n-booze buzz!
