Author Notes: Fruity, ultra-sweet vodka-laced Jello shots were just coming around at about the time I was phasing out of the college-age drinking era, otherwise known as the Sloe Gin Fizz-Pink Lady-Rum Runner epoch. Emboldened by the Espressotini, and inspired by our habitual close to every Italian meal (espresso with Sambuca and a twist of lemon), this was next in the coffee concoctions this week! wssmom

Serves makes about 6 2-ounce shots

  • 3 tablespoons unflavored gelatin
  • 1 tablespoon lemon-flavored gelatin
  • 4 tablespoons cold water
  • 1 cup brewed espresso
  • 1/3 cup black Sambuca
  1. Soften gelatins in cold water. Add piping hot brewed espresso and stir until dissolved, then stir in Sambuca. Pour into little plastic cups and refreigerate until set. Alternatively, pour into an 8x8 baking dish and refrigerate until set, then cut into square and serve.

Oh Lord. I might be a very little bit younger than you (and I don’t think that matters in the long run) but does this ever bring back memories. I was “known” for my Peach Jell-O and Peach Schnapps Jell-O Shots, back in the day. This made me eye my Kir suspiciously for a moment, remembering bygone days. Great recipe, and great memory.

Such a fun and delicious idea for those of us who missed the jello shots era. I can so see this for a backyard summer barbecue party.
