Sometimes I dream about jello shots.
I know. It's weird. And probably a problem. But not when it comes to my lovely and loyal blog readers...especially those who will be rooting for the 49ers on Super Bowl Sunday.
As many of my friends know, I love me a good French 75, which consists of Champagne (love my bubbles), sugar, lemon juice and gin. While I'm not normally a gin drinker, somehow the tartness and sweetness balance out the "I just ate one of those pine tree car fresheners" taste.
I've been wanting to make a jello shot version of this cocktail for quite some time...and decided the Super Bowl would be the perfect opportunity.
After all, champagne is THE drink for celebrating championships...and I think the "French" part of the drink fits in perfectly with the French influence in New Orleans. To celebrate the 49ers, I needed to make them red and gold...and that's how I dreamed up these brilliant boozy bites.
