Give a “healthy” twist to the good-time Jell-O shooter by adding fresh juices in the prettiest palette.
- coconut milk + coconut water + white rum
- hibiscus tea + gin
- ruby red grapefruit + tequila
- watermelon juice + vodka
To fill an ice cube tray (which should be made of soft silicone, for easy removal), you’ll need 16 oz of liquid (13 fl. oz juice and 3 fl. oz booze), as well 2 small packets of unflavored gelatin (around 4 tbsp).
Boil 4 oz. of the juice, then mix in the gelatin with a fork or whisk until it dissolves. Remove from heat, add in the remaining juice, mix together well, and pour into the tray. Place in the fridge for around 3 hours, then pop out the cubes onto a baking sheet covered with wax paper. Refrigerate until serving.
Ahead you'll find all the goodies you need to make the most sophisticated of summery shots.
