Ferrari Cocktail

2oz dry vermouth 1 oz amaretto

Combine vermouth and amaretto and pour over ice in a rocks glass. Garnish with a cherry or orange slice if desired.

Jello {shots} served in citrus peels

 

 

For those of you who haven't heard yet, Pantone has announced tangerine as the new "it" color for 2012. To celebrate here's a fun citrus inspired cocktail for your next social gathering.  I served these at a party once some years ago and they were quite the hit. They are definitly a more grown up version of the traditional jello shot served in paper cups at college parties. You can make these with or without alcohol and in any combination you'd like. Experiment with different flavors of jello and for the cup you can use oranges, lemons, limes, grapefruit or tangerines. For todays recipe we're just gonna go with good old oranges ; )

2-3 oranges 1 (3oz) package of Jello (any flavor) 1/2 cup boiling water 1/2 cup of vodka (again, any flavor) 1/2 cup cold water

1.) Cut oranges in half and hollow out all the fruit. Pat the rinds dry with a paper towel. You can just put them on a plate, or you can plop them in muffin tins to keep them from tipping over.

2.) Make jello according to package. It will call for 2 cups of water, but here we are just subsituting part of the water for vodka. Boil 1 cup of water and add jello packet to disolve, and then add 1/2 cup of cold water and 1/2 cup vodka. (*note - you can change the ratio and go with 1 full cup vodka and no cold water but it may not set up quite as firmly)

3.) Poor jello into orange halfs. Put in fridge for a few hours or overnight until set. Just before serving, cut halfs into two or three slices. *for added glamour try sprinkling with edible glitter.

*As always please remember to drink responsibly.
