The classier cousin of everyone’s favourite spring break party animal, this upgraded jelly shot is made with top-shelf liquor, fresh citrus juices, and homemade simple syrup.


  • 1 cup ruby red grapefruit juice
  • 2 tbsp fresh lemon juice
  • 3 tbsp simple syrup
  • Two 1/4 ounce packets unflavoured powdered gelatin
  • 2/3 cup St-Germain elderflower liqueur
  • 3 tbsp Campari
  • candied grapefruit peel , for garnish (optional)


  • In a small saucepan, combine the first three ingredients listed in the recipe. Sprinkle the gelatin over the top and let it bloom, about 5 minutes. Heat the mixture over medium-low heat, stirring until all the gelatin has dissolved, 3 to 5 minutes. Add the liqueur, mix well, and distribute evenly among twelve 2-ounce lidded plastic cups. Corral the jelly shots on a rimmed baking sheet, refrigerate for at least 2 hours, garnish (optional), snap on the lids, and stack in the cooler.
