I made some vodka jelly shots with some success last night. I’d searched for ways of making it on the web and all the results I found were quite different and many sites mentioned measurements in imperial which is useless for an Aussie gal. So this is what I did.
Bought a bottle of Smirnoff vodka, bought some disposable shot glasses from a little place in the Central Market ($7.90 for 200) and used some port wine jelly I had sitting in the cupboard.
I dissolved the crystals in half a cup of boiling water
I then added 1 cup of vodka and then poured the contents into about 20 disposable shot glasses.
I had them all on a tray which I popped into the fridge.
It didn’t take long for them to set and I think the port wine jelly is a no no as it didn’t taste that flash. I’ve bought some raspberry jelly today which has 20% extra crystals (100g) in it so I’ll have to adjust my half cup boiling water and 1 cup vodka accordingly. I can’t do maths.
The reason I’m making them is that I’m going to a friends 40th on Friday night and I think they will go down very well. Will update on my next try tonight.
