Though I consider myself a New Yorker, I was born and raised in the South and this twist on the classic southern cocktail takes me back to my southern roots. Like the traditional cocktail often served at the Kentucky Derby, this jello mold is made with sweet mint and bourbon. Tart blackberries balance out the sweetness and create a surprisingly cool and refreshing treat perfect for relaxing all day on the front porch of your southern farmhouse. Or if you’re like me, on the roof of your apartment building. I wrote this recipe especially for the Cooking Channel where you can find the recipe complete with process photos.

For the past few months I have been cranking out the heavy, creamy, boozy, winter-time jello molds.  But now that Spring/Summer is finally here, it is time to lighten up. This sweet and refreshing fruit pie was the perfect fit for this past weekend’s backyard brunch party hosted by Art. I used a pre-made shortbread crust which was a great compliment to the tart layer of peaches, strawberries, and blackberries suspended in peach gelatin over a creamy layer of sweetened condensed milk.

Triple berry salad is a classic Jello recipe, but mine has a few twists. This sparkling treat is made with cranberry gelatin and tart pomegranate juice, along with vodka and club soda and is filled with blueberries, raspberries, and blackberries.  It was served at a birthday BBQ to a crowd who had never tired my jello before and was devoured by a frenzied swarm of eager party goers. (I’ve never seen jello sell-out quite like this.)  Thank you guys for your jello enthusiasm!
