I should have done this months ago, like during the summer as these are frozen alcoholic treats, but better late than never..
I’ll start out with making the Grapefruit Margarita shot glasses first.
I used fresh squeeze grapefruit juice, jalapenos, mint and lime juice to flavor the juice. Also added a bit of vodka in here. Then I sifted out the flavorings.
Take this mixture and fill into edible shot glass molds. I’m using this one.
That’s just one flavor, but it’s nice to have a variety and test this recipe with other cocktail blends..I was thinking of adding one of my favorites..Mojito..maybe a coffee/espresso based one, and …Grappa. Was going to a dirty martini frozen shot glass, but who wants to suck down something savory and salty…so I stayed with a sweet theme…
Some garnishes for the cocktails..This dish is available in my shop.
Grappa is usually enjoyed just as a straight shot after italian meals during dessert. This is my favorite Grappa.
Grappa is made from distilling the leftover grape seeds and skins from the wine making process so for the shot glasses I decided to use fresh sliced grapes and sweetened grape liquer to flavor it.
And for the mojito glasses, I flavored that with simple syrup, lime juice, seltzer water, and mint. Also added some silver flakes to it to make it special..
For the coffee liquer, maybe some flavored espresso with white chocolate spirits and Hazelnut Kahlua.
For the grapefruit margarita, just pour a shot of Tequila into the shot glass.
This one below for the coffee shots. I love iced coffee so I thought it would be nice to make frozen coffee shots..The espresso cups below are actually available in my shop.
Coffee shots. Don’t forget to chill your espresso before adding it in. The shot glass is just made of sweetened frozen black coffee and cream on top.
And the grappa…Shots of grappa will be poured into these.. Sliced grapes are frozen in some grape liquer and simple syrup.
Mojitos. Add vodka, rum or tequila..as you wish. I also added fresh squeezed lime juice into the shots.
After you are done with downing the shots, you can then enjoy the cool frozen shot glasses.
My favorite are the grappa shots. I love frozen grapes, so this is perfect for me.
Cheers! Thanks for reading, more soon.
It’s kinda funny how many people think I’ve dissapeared again, or how many inquiries I’ve gotten about all of the deleted posts. The posts have not been deleted, they have been relocated and reorganized under the Journal section of my blog. There are two other sections along with this webzine and I have been posting on a regular basis. If you look at my header, you’ll see links to the ‘Journal’ and ‘Live blog’. All of the more casual posts will go there. Thanks again.
