Götterspeise Jello Shots

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.

    An interesting point is the meaning of Götter Speise
    (or correctly as one word: Götterspeise),
    which means God’s Food.
    Or more poetically as Food of the Gods.

    In German Gotterspeise’s literal translation is “food of the gods” but is used colloquially to mean Ambrosia/l (obvious reasons) and also both jelly and Jello, for reasons that aren’t clear, just are. Maybe it’s simply used to denote any sweet, fruity dessert?? In any case, I have friends who are American ex-Pats living in Amsterdam so definitely need to try the green Gotterspeise herbal green Jello, sounds interesting!
