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 […]

Marbled Stained Glass Jello

Inspired by the Stained Glass Jello, I decided to get a little experimental with this year’s 4th of July jello. For these red, white, and blue mini molds I heated up chunks of stained glass jello, pre-made in a pan, directly in the molds themselves over the gas stove. It only took a few seconds for the […]

Petite Watermelons

With the passing of the Labor Day weekend and summer drawing to an end, I made these mini watermelons to commemorate the occasion. Made with lime rinds, strawberries, and vodka with little black sesame seeds, these make fun little “jello shots”.  I have seen versions of this all over the web, most recently and notably on […]

Cranberry Pomegranate Salad (with Vodka)

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 […]

Applejack Jello

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!

Lucky Jello

Better than green beer and just in time for St Patrick’s day I made this fun, green jello. The bottom layer is lime with vodka and the top layer clear gelatin with lime green maraschino cherries suspended throughout.  Happy Wednesday everyone!

Lobster Jello

My sister Kateri sent me this Lobster mold and I wanted to use it right away so I made a lobster jello for yet another Scorpio birthday, Jacob’s. This orange jello lobster with pistachio D’gari jello base is actually a remake of the original jello made for the party that did not turn out looking […]

Jello Party

To celebrate my own Scorpio birthday this year I threw a Jello Party. I made my first savory jello for the occasion of chive cream cheese, cottage cheese, sour cream, and Worcestershire sauce.  I also created an array of liquor filled mini jellos in such flavors as peach, mango, gooseberry, and mojito, all with either […]

Black Rose Jello

Scorpio Birthday season is fully upon us and for Art and Maya’s Birthday/Halloween bash I made this Black Rose jello with black cherry jello and vodka (yes, that’s me dressed as a Vulcan). The rose tips are highlighted with sweetened condensed milk.  Art got this rose mold for me while in Greece this summer. Thank […]

Brains!!!

Art gave me this mold with an assignment to make a mold that looked better than the one on the box. I think I succeeded. If anything this Strawberry Jello mold with chopped strawberries, Cool Whip, and a whole lotta Vodka succeeded in getting some people far drunker than they intended.  

Vodka Tonic Jello

This was a hit at Hoover’s BBQ. Its top layer is lime jello with vodka and blueberries and the bottom layer is tonic and Cool Whip. So far I’ve been using household items as jello molds, this being a Gladware container, but my first real jello mold is on order.
