Greyhound Jelly Shots

Imagine my delight when my mom gave me the Jelly Shot Test Kitchen cookbook…An entire cookbook…dedicated to Jello Shots! And not just your average JELL-O shots made in a frat kitchen the day before an AM football game…but CLASSY ones.

Classy Jello Shots = anything from the cookbook or the awesome Jelly Shot Test Kitchen Blog. The first recipe I made involved fresh orange and grapefruit juice. Cool, crisp, refreshing…perfect for a summer brunch, or anytime really.

I cannot wait to share more from this cookbook with you! There are so many more clever and fun recipes, and you know a party is elevated to an entire new level of fun when someone shows up with Jello Shots.

Greyhound Jelly Shots
Adapted from The Jelly Shot Test Kitchen Cookbook

  • 1 1/3 cups grapefruit juice
  • 2/3 cup orange juice
  • 2 tbsp agave nectar, plus additional, if desired
  • 2 1/2 envelopes Knox gelatin
  • 2/3 cup Vodka

Combine both juices and agave nectar in a medium saucepan and sprinkle with the gelatin. Allow the gelatin to soak for a minute or two. Heat over low heat, stirring constantly, until gelatin is dissolved, about 5 minutes. Remove from the heat and add the vodka, stirring well to blend. Taste and add more agave, if desired. Pour mixture into a loaf pan and refrigerate until fully set, several hours to overnight.

To serve, cut into desired shapes. Makes 18 – 24 jelly shots.
