Jameson Jello Shots Recipe
- 1/2 cup fresh mint leaves, packed
- 1/2 cup + 1 teaspoon sugar
- 1 1/2 cup water
- 1/2 cup fresh lime juice
- 3 drops green food coloring
- 2 envelopes unflavored gelatin
- 1 cup Jameson Irish Whiskey
- fresh additional mint leaves for garnish
- Begin by placing mint leaves in a small dish. Add 1 tsp of sugar and muddle together with the leaves. This will release the mint juice in the leaves. Repeat until the mixture smells minty.
- Add lime juice and water in a medium sauce pan. Add the gelatin powder and whisk to combine. Let sit for 5 minutes
- Add the muddled mint leaves plus 1/2 cup of sugar to the sauce pan. Whisk together. Over medium-high heat, cook the mixture for 5 minutes. Whisk gently until the liquid is hot and the gelatin is all dissolved. Then, remove it from the heat and let it cool for 15 minutes.
- Strain the liquid and remove the mint leaves. Add the liquid back into the pan and add your whiskey and green dye.
- Lightly spray silicone molds with cooking spray and wipe any excess with a paper towel. Carefully add the liquid into the molds.
- Put the molds into the fridge for at least 3 hours or until fully set.
- Remove from the molds and garnish with mint leaves or edible gold for an extra festive treat! Enjoy!
