If you like pineapple upside down cake, you'll love these! Little jelly shots that taste of pineapple and bright red Maraschino cherries!
What do you get when you take a classic, vintage cake idea and turn it into delicious jelly shots? An amazing treat that will rock your party!
I think grandma would approve after just one taste of these Pineapple Upside Down Jelly Shots. I was pretty impressed with the thought of these delicious shots – and just had to try my hand at making them.
Using not one, but a couple different varieties of alcohol, pineapple gelatin and some bright red Maraschino cherries (let's be honest, the bright red ones make the recipe vintage!), we found ourselves loving these mini bite-sized jelly shots! They're very Amy Sedaris, if you will.
Try a few to be whisked away to the classic flavor of pineapple upside-down cake ... but make sure you don't overdo it!
Gather your stuff – some gelatin, cherries and the booze.
Add the gelatin and hot water in a bowl and stir until gelatin is dissolved.
Add in the rest of the alcohol and stir.
Drop one red cherry into each of the small plastic shot glasses that were sprayed lightly with cooking spray. (Trust me – this helps later when you want to get them out.) Then fill them up with the liquid pineapple gelatin mixture.
Chill in the refrigerator until the jelly shots have firmly set, three hours or more. Then let them sit on the counter at room temperature a couple minutes before tipping upside down onto a serving plate.
Pineapple upside down party time!
