Cocktail Wednesday ~ Blue Hawaii Jelly Shots

To help you get through humpday Wednesday, I'm sharing these fabulous Blue Hawaii Jelly Shots.  I recently found a fun blog called Jelly Shot Test Kitchen that is dedicated to recreating fancy cocktails into jelly shot form.  I was so intrigued by this idea that I ordered Michelle Palm's  newly published book on Amazon while also investing in a silocone mold to help make pretty shapes.  They can also be made in an 8 x 4 loaf pan if you don't have any silicone molds.

These Blue Hawaii jelly shots were at the top of my list since they use my favorite color liqueur Blue Curacao.  These are layered, but no worries...the first layer sets up in 30-45 minutes.  You will impress your friends with these fancy and beautiful layered jelly shots that taste great!

Blue Layer:

1/4 cup pineapple juice, strained to remove solids
1/4 cup vodka
1 envelope Knox gelatin
1/4 cup blue curacao liqueur
1/4 cup coconut rum

Yellow Layer:

3/4 cup pineapple juice, strained to remove solids
1/4 cup Rose's lime juice
1 envelope Knox gelatin

For the blue layer, combine the pineapple juice and vodka in a small saucepan, sprinkle with the gelatin, and allow to sit for 2 minutes.  Turn the heat on low, stirring constantly until the gelatin is fully dissolved, about 5 minutes.  Remove from the heat and stir in the curacao and rum.  Transfer mixture to prepared loaf pan, or fill prepared silicone molds 1/2 way full.  (Prepare by spraying lightly with non-stick cooking spray and wiping away excess).  Refrigerate until set, about 30 minutes for silicone molds, or 45 minutes for loaf pan.

For the yellow layer, combine the pineapple juice and lime juice in a small saucepan, sprinkle with the gelatin, and allow to sit for 2 minutes.  Turn the heat on low, stirring constantly until gelatin dissolves completely.  Remove from the heat and allow to cool slightly.  Carefully ladle the yellow gelatin mixture on top of the set blue layer.  Refrigerate until fully set.

To serve, cut into desired shapes or unmold shots.  Makes 18-24 jelly shots.
