Cape Cod and Collins Jiggle Shots

Try this homemade version of the perennial college party favorite. Omit the vodka for virgin jiggle shots.

  • yield: Makes thirty-two 2-ounce shots

Ingredients

  • 1 1/2 cups lemonade
  • 1 1/2 cups pure cranberry juice (no sugar added)
  • 2 envelopes gelatin
  • 2 1/4 cups simple syrup, hot
  • 2 cups vodka, divided
  • Juice of 1 lemon
  • 32 (3-ounce) disposable plastic cups

Cook's Note

Simple syrup is made from a 1:1 ratio of sugar to water. Keep on heat until sugar dissolves.

Directions

  1. Step 1

    Place lemonade and cranberry juice in separate large heatproof bowls and sprinkle 1 envelope of gelatin over each. Let stand until gelatin blooms, about 5 minutes.

  2. Step 2

    Pour 1 cup hot simple syrup into lemonade and stir until gelatin is dissolved. Pour remaining 1 1/4 cups simple syrup into cranberry juice and stir until gelatin is dissolved. Divide vodka evenly between juices and stir to combine. Stir lemon juice into lemonade mixture.

  3. Step 3

    Place plastic cups on a rimmed baking sheet. Divide juices evenly among cups. Refrigerate until set, at least 8 hours. Jiggle shots can be made and stored, covered, in a refrigerator for up to 1 week.
