Ocean Margarita Jelly Shot, with large crystal sugar garnish, excerpt from a photo by Tate Carlson
This recipe makes a fairly "stiff" jelly shot - for a milder version, substitute up to 1/4 cup of the tequila and 1/4 cup of the Blue Curacao with equal amounts of water!
Recommended Pan: Standard Loaf Pan (approximately 8” x 4”)
¾ cup 100% agave tequila
½ cup Blue Curacao
2/3 cup Roses lime
1/3 cup water
2 envelopes Knox gelatin
1-2 tbsp sugar or agave nectar (if desired)
Pour lime syrup, sweetener and water in a saucepan, sprinkle with gelatin. Allow gelatin to soak for a few minutes. Heat over very low heat until gelatin is dissolved, stirring constantly (approximately 5 minutes). Remove from heat, stir in tequila and Blue Curacao. Pour into pan. Refrigerate until fully set (several hours or overnight).
To serve, cut into desired shapes. Makes 18 to 24 shots.
