Intro: Coffee Jello Shot
A shot of coffee, a shot of alcohol, why not a jello shot of both! I thought why not take the jello shot to a whole new level! This is how to make coffee jello shots.
Step 1: Ingredients
You will need:
At least 2 envelopes of flavorless Knox Gelatin
1c of brewed coffee ( mine was a creamy caramel blend)
3/4 c of hot water
1/4 c of alcohol (mine was Carolan Irish cream)
Some sort of mold or little cups or a pan to put the coffee in to cool
Step 2: Making the Coffee
First you start with your hot brewed 1 cup of coffee and add one package of the gelatin to it. Stir really good make sure all of the gelatin dissolves and then use a dropper of sorts to fill a mold or little cups half way. After making it in a mold I think that it would be easier to serve it it were just in little cups like a traditional jello shot or made in a pan and cut up like a jello giggler. Then you can place it in the freezer for a faster solidifying time. In the shallow molds I did it really didn't take long at all about 10-15 minutes.
Step 3: Alcohol Gelatin
After the coffee part has solidified you want to get 3/4 c of piping hot water and add another gelatin package and stir until completely dissolved. Then add your 1/4 c of alcohol. Be sure to pick an alcohol that would go good in coffee like a Baileys, or whipped vodka or Irish cream. and give it a quick stir and then take your dropper and add right on top of the solidified coffee. This will give it two nice layers that you will be able to see. Then put back in the freezer until done.
Step 4: Done!!
Now you are all done just take them out and serve them. When you eat them I suggest more of a let it sit in your mouth a moment and let the two flavors blend together nicely. Serve them after dinner, as a night cap, or hanging out with friends. I hope you enjoy this little twist on a jello shot.
