New Years Champagne Jelly Shots

Cassie Cakes Champagne Jelly Shots

Happy New Years everyone! This morning I saw my adult neighbour lying in the street, with her hands on her head, screaming, "I want my money! I want my money!" Well, don't we all. Where's my money? Where's my jet pack and where's my goddamn money? That's what I want this year. More jet packs and more money. Drop me a line if you think you can help me get either of those things.

While I'm waiting for my jet pack, money and private island, I'm going to get lit on champagnes jelly shots. Lit up like a firework! These jelly shots pack a punch. I put vodka in them because it's bloody New Years so lets act like it. I would have added more vodka but I was afraid that it wouldn't set.

I think that fear may have been unfounded. I remember reading that a gentleman survived the sinking of the Titanic because his blood alcohol level was so high that his blood wouldn't freeze. And for some reason I had it in my head that because alcohol doesn't freeze, it won't turn to jelly either. I don't think that's the case. Next time I make these, I'm going for it.

I used both a large baking dish and some martini glasses for the jelly. Both work and the glasses actually set a lot faster than the large dish so if you're in a rush to get drunk off jelly, go glasses or even shot glasses.

I'm going to a New Years event on the river tonight, I'm going to watch the fireworks and then I'm going to come home and eat the rest of these, eat some ice cream on my sofa, cuddle my puppy and watch Netflix. How good does my night sound. If you have high aspirations like myself, make these and have yourself a happy little New Years!
