Cocktail Friday ~ Tequila Sunrise Jelly Shots


Happy Friday!  Today I'm making some pretty jelly shots for you.  It's another recipe from Jelly Shot Test Kitchen book.  The only change that I made was to use make the grenadine and orange tequila layers equal. The book calls for 1/3 grenadine to each tequila layer, which is really potent!



I used an ice cube tray to make this shape, but you could easily use a small square or rectangular dish (the larger the dish, the thinner the jelly shot).  You can also use a silicone mold for different shapes.  Whatever you decide to use, spray with non-stick cooking spray and wipe off excess for easy jelly shot removal.


Grenadine Layer:

3/4 cup grenadine
1/4 cup water
1 envelope Knox gelatin

Orange Tequila Layer:

1/2 cup orange juice, strained to remove solids
1 envelope Knox gelatin
1/2 cup gold tequila

For the grenadine layer, pour the grenadine and water into a small saucepan, sprinkle the gelatin over top, and let sit for two minutes.  Turn the heat on low, stirring constantly for 5 minutes until completely dissolved.  Pour into prepared pan or mold and refrigerate for 30-45 minutes until fully set.

For the orange tequila layer, pour the orange juice into a small saucepan, sprinkle the gelatin over top, and let sit for two minutes.  Turn the heat on low, stirring constantly for 5 minutes until gelatin is completely dissolved.  Remove from the heat and stir in the tequila.  Allow mixture to cool slightly.  Carefully ladle over the set grenadine layer and refrigerate until fully set.

If you used a pan, cut into squares or desired shapes.  If you used a mold, gently remove.  Arrange on a serving platter and refrigerate until ready to serve.  Enjoy!
