Red, White, & Blue Jiggler Shot

21 & Up ONLY beyond this point!

This post is a few weeks later than I wanted it to be – SORRY

I started making some Jello Jiggler Shots early this year with ‘Beer Jigglers’ for New Years and then some Margarita Jigglers around Memorial Day (never photographed – Ill re-make and re-do those). Every time I make Jigglers they are a big hit & so much fun. Rich “hates” Jello & Jigglers but gets excited every time that I make these because as they say “there is always room for Jello”!

I have been enjoying my new Jiggler experiments and wanted to bring something fun & festive to our neighbor’s July 4th party and thought these Red, White & Blue Jigglers were just perfect  (I also made Mudslide Jigglers – but those all went to my family, although I do need to make them again for the next time we get together with friends since they were so good)

How To…

All recipe direction are about the same, but I’ll write them out since they vary slightly. They should all be made in either a 9 x 9 pan or a loaf pan (the short square ones are easier to cut). You can also use silicone molds with a little cooking spray before to allow for easy release. Recipes in this post are from (or adapted along the same lines of) the Jelly Shot Test Kitchen Cookbook.

Red: Sangria Jigglers

  • 1 1/2 cup red wine
  • 1/4 cup brandy
  • 1/3 cup orange juice
  • 1/4 cup lime juice
  • 2.5 packages knox gelatin

Place the wine in a small saucepan & sprinkle the gelatin on top – let set for a minute or two. Turn the heat on very low and slowly dissolve the gelatin until melted, about 5 minutes. Add the rest of the ingredients and stir until everything is dissolved and mixed through. Pour into a small (9×9) square container or a loaf pan. Lets set in the refrigerator several hours or overnight (it needs at least 4 hours).

White: Banana Coconut Daiquiri

  • 3/4 cup milk
  • 1/3 cup Rum
  • 1/3 cup Maibu Rum
  • 3/4 cup banana liqueur
  • 2 packages Knoxx

Place the milk in a small saucepan & sprinkle the gelatin on top – let set for a minute or two. Turn the heat on very low and slowly dissolve the gelatin until melted, about 5 minutes. Add the rest of the ingredients and stir until everything is dissolved and mixed through. Pour into a small (9×9) square container or a loaf pan. Lets set in the refrigerator several hours or overnight (it needs at least 4 hours).

* I used 99 bananas liqueur and this was WAY too strong for my taste – please cut it down to 1/2 cup and add 1/4 cup more milk if you try this OR use a different liqueur!

Blue: Blue Hawaii

  • 1 cup pineapple juice
  • 1/4 cup vodka
  • 1/4 cup blue curacao liqueur
  • 1/4 cup rum (white OR Malibu)
  • < 1/4 cup lemon juice
  • 2 packages Knox

Place the pineapple juice, vodka, & lemon juice in a small saucepan & sprinkle the gelatin on top – let set for a minute or two. Turn the heat on very low and slowly dissolve the gelatin until melted, about 5 minutes. Add the rest of the ingredients and stir until everything is dissolved and mixed through. Pour into a small (9×9) square container or a loaf pan. Lets set in the refrigerator several hours or overnight (it needs at least 4 hours).

And I leave you with this question… What classic color OR drink combinations would be fun to make for your next gathering!?
