After I finished interviewing Amy Sirois and Tracy Palm for today's column on making jelly shots, they asked me to name my favorite drink.
When I replied martini, with lots of olives, they smiled and got a bit of a sparkle in their eyes, as if they had a little secret. The secret was their latest jelly shot mold – olives – and they offered to create a signature jelly shot for me. Of course I said yes!
Here's the recipe they developed over the weekend, along with a photo of the final result. Have fun!
Spiced Olive Martini
1/4 Cup Water
1/4 Cup Olive Juice (from a jar of Olives)
1/2 Cup Absolut Peppar Vodka
3 Knox Gelatin Packets
Red Food Coloring
Blue Cheese Crumbles
Put Water and Olive Juice in a pan and sprinkle in Knox. Stir gently to moisten Knox. Place pan on low heat on stove. Stir constantly for 3-5 minutes until Knox is completely dissolved. Remove from heat, add Vodka and stir thoroughly. Put mixture into Olive shaped molds and place in the fridge for several hours. Add a drop of red food coloring in "hole" of mold to create look of Olive. Sprinkle Blue Cheese on top of Olives.
