Lucky-tini O' the Irish Jello Shots


Pear Melon Martini Jelly Shot (aka Lucky-Tini) 3/4 cup pear flavored vodka * ½ cup Midori ½ cup diet Sprite or diet 7-up (diet soda has more flavor, use the regular if you must) ½ cup Lemon syrup (recipe below - a 50/50 mix of frozen lemonade concentrate and water may also be used) 2 envelopes Knox gelatin Combine the soda and lemon syrup (or Sweet and Sour mix) in saucepan on stove. Sprinkle with gelatin and allow to sit for several minutes. Heat over very low heat, stirring constantly, until gelatin is fully dissolved (approximately 5 minutes). Remove from heat. Add the vodka and Midori. Pour into standard loaf pan, and refrigerate until fully set – several hours or overnight. Cut into cubes. Garnish with edible gold leaf if desired. Makes 18- 24 shots. * This Jelly Shot, like its cocktail inspiration, is quite booze-tastic.  For milder jelly shot, replace 1/4 cup of the vodka with additional soda! Lemon Syrup 2 lemons, cut into small wedges ½ cup sugar ¾ cup water Combine ingredients in saucepan. Muddle the lemon wedges with muddler or back of spoon. Heat over medium heat, stirring occassionally, until sugar is fully dissolved and the mixture is beginning to bubble. Source: http://www.jellyshottestkitchen.com/
