Whiskey Sour Jello Shot

I never thought I’d be the kind of girl to be posting about jello shots, but here we are. A couple weeks ago the topic of jello shots came up with my friend Kristi, who had never tried one. I hadn’t thought about those green jello and vodka shooters served up in Dixie cups at frat parties in years, and for good reason. They’re vile. But it got me thinking, what would a Whiskey Sour version with Luxardo cherries bring to the game? So when Kristi and some friends were over the other night at a holiday party, I gave it a go and not only did they give us all a good laugh, but they were fantastic! I might need to experiment with a Pimms Cup shot next…

Whiskey Sour Jello Shots

3 ounces Makers Mark

2 ounces freshly squeezed lemon juice

1 ounce agave syrup

1/4 cup cold water

2 envelopes of Knox unflavored gelatin (5 1/2 teaspoons)

1 cup boiling water

Whisk together whiskey, lemon juice, agave syrup and cold water. Set aside.

In a separate bowl, pour boiling water over gelatin and stir until dissolved. Add whiskey mixture. Mix well and pour into silicone ice cube trays. Add a Luxardo cherry to each. Refrigerate for several hours.

Use a butter knife to edge around each cube to help release from tray.
