Thirsty Thursday

Birthday Cake Jello Shots!

What you need:
  • 2/3 cup canned pineapple juice (fresh won’t gel!)
  • 2/3 cup cranberry juice cocktail
  • 1 tbsp heavy cream
  • 2-3 envelopes plain gelatin (your call, but use 3 if the jelly shots will be sitting out for a while, at your birthday party)
  • 2/3 cup white cake flavored vodka
  • Whipped cream and multi-colored sprinkles, for garnish, if desired
Prepare the silicone mold.  Lightly spray mold with non stick cooking spray.  Wipe off the excess spray with a paper towel.  A slight residue should remain, just enough to help unmold the gelatin, without affecting the taste or appearance.
Pour the juices and cream into a saucepan and sprinkle with gelatin.  Allow to soak for a few minutes.  Heat on low, stirring constantly, until gelatin is fully dissolved (about 5 minutes).  Remove from heat.
Stir in the vodka.  Pour into the molds, and chill until set, several hours or overnight.
To serve, unmold the jelly shots.  Pipe on whipped topping with a pastry bag.  Refrigerate until serving time.  Immediately before serving, top with the sprinkles.
Makes 30 jelly shots.
