What’s A Jello Shot?

You can pair almost any flavor jello with almost any type of alcohol, and when it comes to alcohol you can add a little or a lot! How much you use depends on the kind of party you want to have!

What Is Aperol?
Aperol is an Italian Aperitif (a drink served before or after a meal) that has a little lower alcohol content than it’s Campari counterpart. It is made from a variety of herbs and roots including rhubarb. You most often find Aperol is paired with Prosecco and soda water to make an Aperol Spritz. These jello shots are a take on the popular cocktail.
How To Make Jello Shots
These jello shots are quite sophisticated and not as sweet as some others that you may have tried, there are always ways to change up the recipe to suit your taste.
For this recipe, you need unflavored gelatin, Aperol, sparkling wine or Prosecco, and sparkling lemonade (San Pellegrino). Because you are using unflavored gelatin, the shots will not be very sweet. You can use a citrus flavored jello if you would like or whisk in a couple of tablespoons of sugar. Also, using a lemon-lime soda instead of the sparkling lemonade will add sweetness to your jello.
You will combine your gelatin and sparkling wine or Prosecco in a small saucepan stirring occasionally until the gelatin has dissolved. Whisk in your Aperol and your sparkling lemonade or lemon-lime soda until combined. Pour the mixture into your prepared glasses and refrigerate until ready to serve!
- Jello shots have a long shelf life if covered and stored in the fridge,
- This recipe gave me 10 jello shots, but my glasses were tall. You will get more or less depending on the containers you use.
- Jello shots should not be left out too long as the consistency will eventually change. It is best to keep these refrigerated.
- 1 ½ cups Prosecco
- ½ cup Aperol
- 2 packages unflavored gelatin
- ½ cup San Pellegrino lemonade
- Lemon peel for garnish
- In a saucepan, combine the gelatin and the Prosecco; whisk until the gelatin has dissolved.
- Stir in the Aperol and the lemonade until blended.
- Carefully pour mixture into glasses or cups.
- Refrigerate until set (around 4 hours)
- Garnish with lemon rind if desired.
These are not as sweet as some other jello shots. I recommend tasting the mixture before pouring into our glasses,
Lemon-lime soda can be used in place of the lemonade to add some sweetness. Sugar can be whisked in as well.
