I can't drink it on its own, I turn into a crazy lady with shaky hands and a nervous stomach, but I ocassionally will order a Redbull and vodka if we are out with friends and I need a little pick me up. (Hello dance floor!)
My husband on the other hand, loves this stuff. He was the one that suggested I try this jello shot. A jello shot with an energy burst. Sounds pretty awesome.
You don't need the silicon molds for this shot, you can make them in cubes by using a brownie pan and cutting out the shots with cookie cutters.
But if you like entertaining and jello shots, I really recommend getting one of these. It's SO EASY to use, the jello shots pop right out.
Two more days until the weekend! Hang in there.
***update*** I recently tweak the recipe because many said they were too strong. I reduced the vodka from a whole cup to a 1/2 cup.
Redbull and Vodka Jello Shots
1 1/2 cups Redbull (You will need two cans of regular or sugar free, whatever you prefer)
1 and 1/2 packets of Knox powdered gelatin
1/2 cup vodka of choice
24 Cherries with stems
1 Bite-Size Squares 24-Cavity Silicone Mold (they have these at Michaels)
1. Prepare your molds by spraying them with cooking spray or coconut oil lightly and cut your cherries in half and reserve for later. (This helps the cherries stand upright in the shots)
2. Pour 1 1/2 cup Redbull into a medium sauce pan (should be almost the whole can). Sprinkle your 1 and 1/2 packets of gelatin on top (don't stir) and let it sit for 2 minutes to activate the gelatin.
3. Turn on low heat and stir in the gelatin until it all dissolves. Let the Redbull get to a light boil and turn off the heat. Let it cool slightly and then add 1/2 cup of vodka.
4. Pour half of your Redbull jello mixture into your molds (or pan) let refrigerate and harden (about 2 hours). Place one cherry in each mold (or spread out an inch apart on in a pan) with the stem side up and cut side down, upright.
5. Top with the rest of the jello mixture gently, not disturbing the upright cherries. Let refrigerate over night. Carefully, take a butter knife and edge around each mold to help release the shot. Pop them out and serve.
Tip: Lightly grease your serving tray with cooking spray or coconut oil before serving so the shots don't stick and break when people try to pick them up by the cherry stem.
