Watermelon Rose Jello Shots
While this recipe is definitely not for the grill, it is a great recipe for adult enjoyment for your summer cookout or gathering. Created for celebration of National Eat Your Jello Day on July 12th.
Yield: 12-14 shots
Prep Time: 15 minutes
Additional Time: 2 hours
Total Time: 2 hours 15 minutes
- 1 cup watermelon juice
- 1 1/2 cups Rosé wine
- 1 packet knox gelatin
- chopped fresh mint leaves for garnish
- optional: 2 tablespoons to 1/4 cup sugar or monk fruit sweetener
- Add watermelon juice to a small saucepan and bring to just a boil. (if using sugar add it to this step so it dissolves in the hot juice)
- As the juice heats up: add wine to a mixing bowl. Sprinkle gelatin over top to let it bloom for at least a minute before adding juice.
- Pour hot watermelon juice over wine and mix well. Stir until gelatin is completely dissolved, a few minutes at least.
- Divided shots into 2 ounce shot cups.
- Sprinkle chopped mint leaves into the shots. (optional)
- Transfer shots to fridge to set, about two hours.
Adding the sugar is recommended if you prefer a sweeter shot as neither the rosé or the cooked watermelon juice tend to be very sweet.
