Setting up a Mimosa and/or Bloody Mary bar is a no-brainer, especially when serving breakfast food. That said, you have to try this waffle jello shot recipe that I found on the Jelly Shot Test Kitchen blog!
They have the classic recipe and a nice blueberry version on their site. I made the classic, and it was quite good.
The Wilton 12 Cavity Round Ice Cream Sandwich pan is the magic behind the waffle shape and look of the shots. I ordered mine from Bed Bath & Beyond.
The Recipe (with my shortcuts/substitutions)
Yield: 12 jelly shots
- 1 cup fresh squeezed orange juice, strained to remove solids (I used store bought, no pulp)
- 2 tsp lemon juice
- ¼ cup Grade B maple juice (I used Harry & David Maple Syrup)
- 2 envelopes plain Know gelatin
- 1 cup cake flavored vodka or vanilla vodka with 2 tsp amaretto (I used plain vodka, because that’s what I had in the house!)
