Pomegranate Margarita Jelly Shots

Prep Time: 15 minutes
Total Time: 6 hours
Yield: 25 Jelly Shots
  1. 2 cups pomegranate juice
  2. 1 cup sugar
  3. 1/2 cup water
  4. 1 lime juice only
  5. 1 ounce gelatin
  6. 1/2 cup triple sec
  7. 1 cup tequila
  1. In a small saucepan, heat pomegranate juice with sugar and lime juice. Just heat the mixture until the sugar dissolves. It doesn’t need to be very hot.
  2. In a small bowl, stir together water with gelatin. The gelatin should swell and it should basically turn into a paste.
  3. Slowly stir hot pomegranate mixture into the bloomed gelatin. The mixture should be without a lot of lumps.
  4. Stir in triple sec and tequila.
  5. Pour mixture into an 8″ x 8″ baking dish. Cover the mixture with plastic wrap and chill the mixture until it sets, about five hours at a minimum but overnight is best.
  6. Remove plastic wrap and slice shots into 25 even pieces (5 by 5 cuts).
  7. Serve jelly shots optionally with whipped cream and lime zest. But they’re also great on their own!
