Fireball Shots Fireball Whisky
Cinnamon flavored whisky is all the rage at the moment and its my friend Katharine’s favorite bottle to bring to a party. So when she threw an end-of-winter party, I had to bring some Fireball Shots of my own… jello style! Akin to the Atomic Fireball candy we all chipped a tooth on as a kid, this jigglier, boozier version is all whisky and ginger ale. They were a smash hit at Katharine’s party and a fiery way to usher out the winter and welcome warmer weather. Happy Spring everyone!

Shamrock Shake Shots

DIY Shamrock Shake recipes are making the rounds on the foodie-interwebs this Saint Patrick’s Day season. And what could be better than NOT going to McDonald’s and instead making your own minty green treat at home?? Making your own minty green treat at home, adding some booze and gelatin to the mix, and turning out some amazing jello shots! Vanilla ice cream, milk, a hint of mint, and whisky make these shamrock shaped shots (say that 3 times fast) special. Not into whisky? Vodka will do, as will peppermint schnapps (leave out the mint extract). Go nuts, and have a happy St. Patrick’s day!

Jello Week Cosmo

This food appreciation holiday sneaks up on me every year…. and yes, this is a real thing. A week that apparently also celebrates pizza and frankfurters with sauerkraut. And, as much as I love pizza, I won’t subject you to mozzarella and tomato aspic topped with mushrooms and onions… or worse, sauerkraut suspended in lemon jello, which is also a real thing. Instead, raise a glass with some jello from my book Hello Jell-O!; Raspberry Cosmo Jello with cranberry juice, triple sec, and vodka.

May Flowers 4

April showers, bring May flowers, right? That would be true except this spring has been so unseasonably cold that every time we have a warm day and I think spring is finally here, it gets cold again and the flowers refuse to bloom. Never-the-less, June is almost upon us and it’s time for Memorial Day weekend cookouts! So I present you with May Flowers jello shots. Made with a generous dose of St. Germain Elderflower liqueur, gin, and grapefruit juice, these shots are flowery, sweet, and a little tart. Have a safe and warm holiday weekend!

Pumpkin Spice Latte

October 22, 2012 at 1:49 pm | Posted in Allspice, Cinnamon, Coffee, Jello Shots, Milk, Pumpkin, Recipe, WhippedCream | 9 Comments

According to New York Magazine, pumpkin is the new bacon and the Pumpkin Spiced Latte is really trending this fall. With the return of Starbucks’ seasonal favorite and slew of imitation recipes making the rounds, I decided I best jump on the bandwagon and make my very own pumpkin spice latte jello. More like a custard than a jello, it is made with milk, pumpkin, and coffee. Allspice and cinnamon give it a cozy, warm flavor and whipped cream rounds it out. And best part is that 4 servings of this jello mold will cost you less than a trip to Starbucks. Happy Fall and Happy Halloween!

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.

I rang in the new year over the weekend with a little something boozy from the book.  This very rich and creamy Mudslide jello, fashioned after the cocktail, is made with generous amounts of coffee and Irish cream liqueurs, heavy cream, and a touch of vodka. A little cocoa powder tops it off (whipped cream and/or chocolate syrup would also be good).  Have a happy New Year everyone!

My friends Art and Marty recently returned from gallivanting around Europe, Berlin and Amsterdam mostly, and brought me some Euro-gelatin from both destinations.  The German Götter Speise gelatin came in three flavors Himbeer (raspberry), Zitronen (lemon), and Waldmeister, which I assumed was lime by its green color but is actually Woodruff and had an herbal flavor. Combined with a little Vodka I used these gelatins to create rainbow jello shots for a summer rooftop party.
