Have you ever tried a jello shot? I passed them up at every sorority party in college, but then we went to a friend’s party last month (no frat boys in site) and they were totally serving jello shots. The shots were hilarious! I knew I wanted to try out a recipe of my own. My version is infused with rose water and vodka. A fun bar addition for Valentine’s Day, a bridal shower, or a bachelorette party.
To make the rose infused jello shots start with a package of strawberry jello. Mix according to the package directions except in place of the cold water add vodka and replace the boiling water with boiling rose infused water. The result is sweet (maybe even better than chocolate:). No, but almost!
To make the rose infused water combine 2 cups cold water with about 1 cup rose petals in a mason jar, let sit in the fridge overnight. When you are ready to make the jello shots – strain the water, toss the petals, and boil the rose water to use in the recipe.
Let the shots set as per package instructions in a 8×11 baking pan. Before serving lay out rose petals on top – make sure the petals have been throughly washed and dried before hand.
Serve the shots as boozy bouquets along with branches of the real flower. Tip: make sure to label the plater so everyone knows what’s in the jello. It would also be really easy to make a version sans-vodka for the kids to enjoy!
