Mango Cosmopolitan Jelly Shot

As prepared by Jelly Shot Test Kitchen,

I often receive requests from readers of the Jelly Shot Test Kitchen blog for recipes.


Usually, it’s the nomination of a favorite cocktail for gelatinization.  Sometimes, it’s for a specific liquor.  These Mango Cosmopolitan Jelly Shots were created in response to such a reader inquiry (we’ll call this reader Mr. X, not to be mysterious, but because I don’t know his name).

Mr. X’s wife loved mandarin vodka, and he wanted to surprise her with a mandarin vodka based jelly shot for her birthday, at the party he was planning in her honor.  (How adorable is that – can’t you just see Mr. X. in his little apron, whipping up a batch of jelly shots?)

Apart from the classic Cosmopolitan Jelly Shot, I didn’t actually have any recipes with mandarin vodka.  And, as delicious as a Cosmo is, it doesn't quite showcase the sweet orange-y goodness that is mandarin vodka.

While it wouldn’t fit the bill for Mr. X., the traditional Cosmo was a good starting off point.  A few minor tweaks later – i.e. a swap of white cranberry for regular and the addition of a little mango nectar – sweet, subtle and ever so slightly tropical Mango Cosmopolitan Jelly Shot was born!  I hope  it fits the bill for all you mandarin vodka lovers out there (including you, Mr. and Mrs. X)!

Cheers and XO,

Michelle
