Long Island Iced Tea Jelly Shot Recipe


Long Island Iced Tea Jelly Shot

This kitchen-sink cocktail goes down just as smoothly in gelatin form, and sets the perfect tone for a barbecue or other warm-weather gathering. Try serving the jelly shots threaded onto bamboo cocktail skewers with a small lemon wedge.


  • 1 ½ cups Diet Coke
  • ¼ cup lelmon simple syrup
  • 3 envelopes Knox gelatin
  • ¼ cup vodka
  • ¼ cup gin
  • ¼ cup rum
  • ¼ cup tequila
  • ¼ cup Triple Sec
  • 25 bamboo skewers and small lemon wedges for serving, if desired


Combine the Diet Coke and lemon syrup in a medium saucepan and sprinkle with the gelatin. Allow the gelatin to soak for a minute or two. Heat over very low heat until the gelatin is dissolved, stirring constantly, about 5 minutes.

Remove from heat and add the liquors, stirring well to blend. Pour into a 9"x9" pan and refrigerate until fully set, several hours or overnight.

To serve, cut into small circles or squares. Thread a small lemon wedge onto each bamboo skewer, followed by two small jelly shots. Refrigerate until ready to serve.
