Another refreshing spring time jello, inspired by one of Shane’s favorite drinks, comprised of layers of apple cider, chopped green apples and vodka. Sweet, tart, and tangy all at the same time!
* I didn’t cook the apples for this recipe but, in retrospect, I think that may have made it better. Once sauteed, apples can be incorporated into this recipe as normal. http://allrecipes.com/recipe/21672/sauteed-apples/
1/2 cup water
1 1/4 cup apple juice, boiling
1 cup apple cider, boiling
3/4 cup cold apple cider
1/2 cup cold vodka
2 envelopes of Knox unflavored gelatin
1 cup diced apples
In a small bowl, sprinkle Knox over 1/4 cup water until gelatin absorbs water. Stir in boiling apple juice for at least 2 minutes until gelatin is dissolved. Stir in vodka . Place in the fridge until gelatin thickens (to the consistency of raw eggs). Fold in apples. Spoon into mold and refrigerate until firm but not set.
