Bushwacker Jelly Shot

Bushwacker Jelly Shot, looking deceptively innocent in its tiny pleated cup . . . 

Those with a sweet tooth will be pleased with the Bushwacker Jelly Shot.  The cocktail inspiration is, of course, the Bushwacker Cocktail.  Technically, the Bushwacker isn't a dessert drink, but rather a beach or tropical libation - the unofficial cocktail of the island of St. Thomas.  What makes a drink a dessert drink, anyway?  If an octane rating is involved, the Bushwacker's two varieties of rum and myriad mix of liqueurs,  held together with the merest smattering of mixers, likely push it well over to the "beach/tropical" genre.

French Lemonade Redux

Molded French Lemonade Jelly Shot, garnished with fresh raspberries and photographed in the gentle light of dawn by our own Intern Doug . . . 

Its quite apparent that our dear Intern Doug has an interminable amount of energy.  I was still padding about the house in pj pants and slippers this morning, coffee cup in hand, when I received an image of Heidi (so sorry ladies, but Heidi is Intern Doug's adorable wife . . .) next to a large, molded French Lemonade Jelly Shot, with the caption "photos from this morning".

Intern Doug also sent some very intriguing images of a jelly shot he called the "Melon Special", which we will examine at a later date.  (Not to tease, but he literally hasn't yet shared the details with me.)

Click here for the recipe for French Lemonade Jelly Shot, created last year for Edina Magazine.

Say tuned for a new recipe on the JSTK blog mid-week! (Those of you longing for a dessert style jelly shot will be pleased!)

Cheers and XO,

Intern Doug's First Solo Flight . . .

Hello again . . . at long long last!  Thanks for your messages and notes while I was away, and apologies to those of you who stopped at JSTK over the last several weeks and were disappointed due to the lack of new posts.  (I MISSED YOU TOO!!!   Lots and lots . . . TONS upon TONS . . you have no idea!)  At any rate, I'm back with lots of new recipe ideas, and will begin posting them in the next week or so (timing naturally depends on the success of the initial trials of these new recipes).

Well, JSTK has not exactly been shuttered in my absence.  While I was away, Intern Doug sallied forth with his first solo jelly shot venture: a batch of Mandarin Cosmo Jelly Shots (click for recipe); start to finish; with no adult supervision!  Check out his photo journal:
