Here’s something…that exists.
Old Fashioned Jelly Shots
2/3 cup soda water
2/3 cup Bitters Syrup (recipe follows)
2 tablespoons maraschino cherry juice
2 envelopes Knox gelatin
2/3 cup bourbon or scotch whiskey
Orange slices and maraschino cherries for garnish, if desired
For the Bitters Syrup:
1 1/2 cups water
1 cup granulated sugar
9 tablespoons Angostura bitters
1 To make the Bitters Syrup: Combine all ingredients in a medium saucepan. Heat over medium-high heat until mixture boils, stirring occasionally. Remove from the heat and allow to cool to room temperature.
2 To make the jelly shots: Combine the soda water, bitters syrup, and cherry juice in a small saucepan and sprinkle with the gelatin. Allow the gelatin to soak for a minute or two. Heat over very low heat until gelatin is dissolved, stirring constantly, about 5 minutes. Remove from the heat and add the whisky, stirring well to blend. Pour into pan and refrigerate until fully set, several hours or overnight.
3 Cut the orange and cherries into small slivers for garnish.
4 To serve, cut the set gelatin into desired shapes and garnish as desired.
