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.
Hi. I’m going to make vodka jelly shots for my 18th birthday party. thanks for saying how you did it. it seems easy but i was a bit unsure of how to do it so i looked on the net! I’ve been testing different flavoured jelly lately and i think passiona flavoured is really nice! pineapple is good too.
This recipe turns out quite strong so you may want to water it down a little bit. I only got about 40 shot glasses out of most of a 700ml bottle of vodka.
