These rosé wine jelly shots are flipped upside down with floating fruit in heart-warming snow globe style.
So ya think jelly shots are made with vodka, hmm? Yop, yer right. But not when you need an “awwww!”
on a special day.
For that, you need wine. Rosé wine … for your Valentine. I rhyme. I'm so sublime.
Valentine Snow Globe Jelly Shots
... let’s do this!
Jelly shot guts: Unflavored gelatin, sugar, water and wine. I used Skinny Girl … cuz … who doesn’t wanna be that
girl? But you use you's fave.
So, sprinkle unflavored gelatin into a little bowl of water. Let’r sit for 5 mins.
While that’s jellin, put some more water into a pan and start heating it. Add a couple-a-cups-a rosé wine and some sugar. Stir to dissolve the sugar, Sugar.
Then add that jelled gelatin, and whisk away ‘til it’s incorporated
. That’s chef-speak for getting the gelatin all up in that wine slurp. Keep it going ‘til it’s clear, then take the pan off the heat.
Pour your vino into 6 little jars. I used jelly jars, but you could use baby-food jars if you happen to have a li’l bambino hanging out in your casa. Fill ‘em up to the tippy top. All. The. Way. You’ll see why later. Refrigerate at least 4 hours til there's no more sloshin goin on.
When you’re ready to put them together, grab some fruit. Use your imagination. Or use my idea of strawberries and poma seeds. Yah, that’s easier.
I sliced off the strawberry outsides so I could cut little hearts with the red seedy side showing. I used a tiny cookie cutter, but use a sharp knife and go rogue if you need to.
Then take your jelled jelly shots and make a slit up front with a sharp little knife. There is something quite surgical about this. Quit dreaming about Dr. McDreamy. It isn’t that
surgical. Moving on…
Turn the heart UPSIDE DOWN.
Turn the heart UPSIDE DOWN.
I said that twice on purpose. Just do what I said, not what I did. Yah, I didn’t turn them upside down at first. But you’ll soon see why flipping them over IS a good idea. Juuuust truuuust meeee.
Use a skewer or your knife to gently push the heart down a ways.
Then use the skewer to poke some holes and insert some pomegranate seeds in random places. This is your Valentiney snow. Like it was shook up and it snowed poma seeds and berry hearts. Really. This is stellar. Even though I didn’t take a picture of the poking-in-the-poma-seeds part.
Do the rest of the jars. You’ll get pretty fast at this. I was clocking at less than 30 seconds each.
Put the lids on and turn ‘em upside down. Not even kidding – how cute are these. (And aren’t you glad I said to turn the hearts upside down TWICE?!)
Pretty in pink (ribbon).
Oh, honey…go call those fab friends 'n get 'em on over here... cuz it's never fun to jell alone!
