filled about halfway with white wine, then added a splash of lime juice and about a teaspoon of triple sec to each jar. added orange pieces, fresh raspberries, and frozen mango chunks; then filled the rest of the way with mango juice. left it all to steep for a while and came back to enjoy it a few hours later! YUM.

recipe adapted from from bobby flay
i doubled this recipe and switched out regular orange juice for sparkling blood orange juice. also, i think it’s a good idea to start with the wine and brandy, and then add the other ingredients to taste.
- 2 bottles red Spanish table wine
- 1 cup brandy
- 1/4 cup triple sec
- 1 cup orange juice <– with the advice from the guy from the wine section of trader joes, i substituted sparkling blood-orange juice for this
- 1 cup pomegranate juice
- 1/2 cup simple syrup, or more to taste (equal parts sugar and water, heated until sugar dissolves, cooled)
- Orange slices
- Apple slices
- Pomegranate seeds
- Mix all ingredients together and let stand in a tightly sealed container or pitcher for at least 24 hours in the refrigerator before serving.

Total Time: 2 hours, 20 minutes
Yield: 16 1-ounce shots <– for me, it was more like 12 or 13
- 3 oz Jell-O or other gelatin (any flavor)
- 1 cup boiling water
- 1/2 cup (4 ounces) vodka (or other distilled spirit)
- 1/2 cup cold water
- Chill the liquor and cold water mix in the refrigerator so they are a consistent temperature.
- Pour gelatin into a bowl.
- Add boiling water, stirring until the gelatin is completely dissolved.
- Stir in chilled liquor and water mix and food coloring (optional).
- Pour into shot glasses, molds, or a baking pan for a sheet of Jell-O to cut up once set. Tip: The small, plastic or paper shot cups are perfect because the drinker can just squeeze the shot out.
- Refrigerate until the liquid sets. (At least 2 hours, but overnight refrigeration is recommended)
- Serve cold.
