More About This Recipe
  • These fruity jelly shots mix sweet pomegranate juice, fresh citrus, and of course, plenty of wine!

    Being a huge sports fan (and a sports anchor to boot), I love football season. It means lazy Sundays and cheering on your favorite teams with your favorite foods and cocktails.

    But I realize not all ladies are in my camp. For some, football season means you become a “widow” of sorts for 4 months out of the year (5 months if your team is really good). AKA: Bring on the wine.

    Now that the calendar has turned to January and you’re celebrating the end of the season or the beginning of playoffs, everyone can enjoy these wine-based jelly shots. Now you can have your wine and eat it too!

    The base for these shots is a trio of juices: Pomegranate, fresh orange and lime. Strain to remove the pulp and combine with a little sugar (depending on how sweet you like your cocktails).

    Sprinkle unflavored gelatin over the top and allow to soak in a minute or two. Heat on medium, stirring until gelatin and sugar have dissolved. Add alcohol. (Because the pomegranate juice is red, feel free to use either red or white wine… whatever you prefer!)

    Spray a small pan with nonstick spray and wipe out with a paper towel. This will leave just enough residue to help dislodge the shots later. Pour sangria mixture into pan and refrigerate for four hours.

    Using either a small cookie cutter/fruit cutter or simply a knife, cut shots into desired shapes.

    You can serve them on cute mini plates.

    Or in wine/coupe glasses, sprinkled with lime and orange zest.

    Cheers!
