Welcome to the Velvet Room, a classy blue cocktail with curious floating gelatin bits that taste sweet and pack a kick. Watching them bob around in the blue sparkling wine can be a little hypnotic, you might even see a glimpse of your future.
- 1 shot vanilla vodka
- 1 shot blue curacao
- 1 tsp Blavod Jelly (recipe is below)
- Champagne or Sparkling wine (white is best to preserve the beautiful blue colour)
Pour the vanilla vodka and blue curacao into a champagne flute and add the Blavod Jelly. Top off the glass with champagne.
- 1/2 cup Blavod Black Vodka (regular vodka will work too, but I like the colour contrast with the Black Vodka)
- 1/2 cup Grape juice
- 1 packet Knox gelatin
Heat the grape juice in a small saucepan and dissolve the gelatin in it. Once all the gelatin clumps are gone, remove the grape juice from the heat, and add the vodka. Pour the mixture into a bowl and allow to set up in the fridge. Usually an hour or so.
Once the gelatin is set, run chunks of the jello through a potato ricer, or mill in a food processer until fluffy. Set aside until you are ready to drink.
