More About This Recipe

  • These Mango Cosmopolitan Jelly Shots were created in response to 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)!
