Now who’s ready for some Mojito Jello Shots?
Here’s what you’ll need:
- 8 tbsp sugar
- 4 packets Knox gelatin
- 2 1/2 cup cold water
- 1 cup raspberry juice
- 1/2 cup cold white rum
- 1/2 lime
- Mint for garnish
First things first, it’s time to make the raspberry juice. Thoroughly rinse 6 oz of berries, and place them in a heavy pot with 1 1/4 cup water. Bring to a slow boil, mash with a potato masher or spoon, bring back to a boil, and remove from the heat. Cool slightly. Pour the mashed berries through a colander to strain. Measure out 1 cup juice and pour into an unheated saucepan. Sprinkle on two packets of Knox gelatin. Let it sit for a few minutes then whisk until it’s combined. Turn on the stove-top to medium heat. Add 4 tablespoons of sugar and whisk until combined. When simmering, add one cup cold water. Pour your raspberry mixture into a 9×13 pan that has been (very) lightly greased. Refrigerate until firm (about 4 hours). Wait to make the second layer until the first layer is set.
Pour 1 cup water into an unheated saucepan. Sprinkle on two packets of Knox gelatin. Let it sit for a few minutes then whisk it until combined. Turn on the stove-top to medium heat. Add 4 tablespoons of sugar and whisk until combined. In a separate bowl, combine 1/2 cup cold white rum, 1/2 cup cold water, and juice from 1/2 lime. (For a more alcohol concentrated jello, use 1 cup cold white rum.) When gelatin mixture is simmering, add rum mixture, then pour into your 9×13 pan. Refrigerate until firm (about 4 hours). Slice into cubes, top with mint for garnish, and stick pretty glassware such as our personalized Drunk in Love plastic cups to serve and enjoy!
