Apple Jelly Shots

Ever whittled a shot cup out of an apple?

I’m sure many people are already familiar wih the idea of eating a jelly shot out of a hollowed-out orange (I used a clementine once), but I’d never previously heard of anyone using an apple, so had to try it out myself.

The ingredients will all come down to personal preference, but I used the following:

– An apple (I used a Golden Delicious apple)
– Three cubes of jelly per apple (I used Blackcurrant-flavoured jelly)
– Roughly 50ml water per apple (though I wasn’t exact with my measurements)
– Jim Beam Red Stag Whiskey for one side of apple
– Bols’ Blue Curacao for the other side

Melt the jelly cubes in water, and allow to cool.

Carefully hollow-out your apple, add a dash of your chosen beverage, then top up with jelly mix.

There's no non-messy photogenic way of doing this, apparently,

Place in fridge and chill over night.

Also made a second attempt - I'l admit, the first one had a leak.

The verdict? Oh, definitely try it out yourself.
