"Polyjuice Potion" Jelly Shots

Polyjuice Potion Jelly Shots are creepy, spooky Potter-rific fun . . .

Another Potter-themed jelly shot for you!  These slightly creepy gelatin extravaganzas are made with pineapple juice, pineapple vodka, ginger ale and lime sherbet.
(To make for the kids, just omit the vodka and replace with additional soda or juice.)  Partially setting the gelatin mixtures partially set before adding to the pan provides a ghastly bubbly-potion effect.

Happy Pottering!

Polyjuice Potion Jelly Shots

Ginger Ale mixture
1/2 cup ginger ale
1 envelope plain gelatin
1/2 cup ginger (or pineapple) vodka

Pineapple mixture
1/2 cup canned pineapple juice (fresh won't work - the enzymes in fresh pineapple interfere with the gelatin)
1 envelope plain gelatin
1/2 cup pineapple vodka

Lime mixture
1/2 cup water
1 envelope plain gelatin
1/2 cup lime sherbet, melted

Prepare the three gelatin mixes as follows:


  • Ginger Ale: Pour the ginger ale in a medium saucepan.  Sprinkle with the gelatin and allow to soak for a minute or two.  Heat over low heat, stirring constantly, until the gelatin is fully dissolved (about 5 minutes).  Remove from heat.  Stir in the vodka.  
  • Pineapple: Pour the pineapple juice in a medium saucepan.  Sprinkle with the gelatin and allow to soak for a minute or two.  Heat over low heat, stirring constantly, until the gelatin is fully dissolved (about 5 minutes).  Remove from heat.  Stir in the vodka.  
  • Lime: Pour the water in a medium saucepan.  Sprinkle with the gelatin and allow to soak for a minute or two.  Heat over low heat, stirring constantly, until the gelatin is fully dissolved (about 5 minutes).  Remove from heat.  Stir in the melted sherbet.

Pour each mixture into a separate bowl and refrigerate until partially set.  (Just starting to change from liquid to solid - about 20 to 25 minutes.)

Prepare a standard 1lb loaf pan about 8" x 5", glass or non-reactive metal) by spraying with a little cooking spray and then wiping out with a paper towel.

Give each mixture a quick stir.  Drop alternating spoonfuls of the three mixtures into the pan, until all the gelatin has been transferred.  Refrigerate until fully set (at least 6 hours or overnight - extra time is needed for the gelatins to bond)

To serve, cut into rectangles.  Makes about 18 jelly shots.
