Alcoholic jelly looks like a harmless sweet treat from our childhood, but do not underestimate it, because with the light hand of the bartender jelly turns into a strong alcoholic dessert for adults. In America they call it “jello shots,” in our country it’s called alcoholic jell-o shots.
The preparation process is quite simple, and the main thing is that anyone can make it at home. By the way, in the U.S., alcoholic jello shots are as popular on New Year’s Eve as red caviar is in our country.

That is, I would like to emphasize that the limit of what is allowed in the recipe for alcoholic jelly is limited only by your imagination. Now that we know that jellies and alcohol go well together, we need to clarify the situation with the selection of flavors for jellies.
For this purpose we have made a small list of perfectly combined “alcohol – jelly” pairs: Vodka – orange or cherry jelly. Whiskey/cognac – apple jelly. Tequila – lemon jelly. Gin – kiwi jelly or peach jelly.
It is important to remember: the most optimal proportion for alcoholic jelly is one part alcohol to two parts liquid jelly. If you increase the amount of alcohol, the jelly will turn out unpalatable and too strong. Alcoholic Jelly: step by step recipe
