Cherry Pie Jello Shots

These little suckers are packed with cherry flavor and a serious boozy punch!

Ingredients

1
packet (1/4 oz.) unflavored gelatin
3/4
cup water
3/4
cup cherry vodka
2
tablespoons grenadine syrup
1/4
cup sugar
4
drops red food coloring
6
mini graham cracker pie crusts
Whipped cream and maraschino cherries (optional)

Directions

  • 1 In a small pot, sprinkle unflavored gelatin over water and let sit for 5 minutes. Then add sugar and heat over medium-low heat until sugar and gelatin are completely dissolved. Set aside to cool a bit.
  • 2 In a separate bowl, stir together vodka, grenadine syrup, and red food coloring.
  • 3 When gelatin mixture is dissolved, stir into the vodka mixture.
  • 4 For easy clean up and transfer to the fridge, place the mini pies into a baking dish. Pour mixture into mini pie crusts.
  • 5 Transfer to the fridge and let chill for at least four hours.
  • 6 When ready to serve, cut pies into quarters, remove from tins, and top each shot with a dollop of whipped topping and a maraschino cherry, if desired. (They're awesome plain, too!)

What could be better on National Cherry Pie Day than Cherry Pie ... Jelly Shots?!

As prepared by Macheesmo,

Cherry pie in jelly shot form – now that's deliciously creative.

It’s National Cherry Pie Day! So you could make a plain-Jane cherry pie, but your guests have probably tasted that before. What they probably haven’t tasted yet are these boozy little mini cherry pies.

These Cherry Pie Jelly Shots are so cute you won’t want to eat them. Well, actually you'll definitely want to eat them, because they are delicious! The good news? It's way easier to make 'em than it looks.

 

Cherry Pie Jelly Shots

I like to use the real deal gelatin when I make jelly shots because it guarantees that they set up perfectly. The only trick with using the real stuff is to let it sit in the water for five minutes so it “blooms” (expands and dissolves). If you don’t do this step, your mix might have some clumps in it.

Once the gelatin has bloomed for about five minutes, add 1/4 cup of sugar to the pot and start heating it over medium heat. You just need to heat it until the sugar and gelatin dissolves. It doesn’t need to boil or anything.

Meanwhile, combine the cherry vodka (any brand is fine) with some grenadine syrup and food coloring. The food coloring is optional but will make the red color really pop.

Once the gelatin and sugar mixture is dissolved, stir it into the cherry vodka mixture.

Then just divide that between six little mini pie crusts, which are found in the baking section of most grocery stores. Fill them in a baking dish in case there are spills.

Transfer these to the fridge and let them set for at least four hours. That should be more than enough time for the shots to firm up.

To serve these guys, cut each mini-pie into quarters and (if you want) garnish each shot with a bit of whipped cream and a maraschino cherry.

Cheers to the cherry!
