Ingredients

  • 2 tablespoons unflavored gelatin (2 packets)
  • 2 cups red wine (red blend, cabernet, zinfandel) divided
  • 1/2 cup cherry juice
  • 1/2 cup cranberry juice
  • 1/2 granny smith apple cored and finely diced
  • 18 mandarin oranges slices chopped into thirds
  • 18 fresh raspberries halved
  • 18 2-ounce plastic cups with lids

Instructions

  • Add gelatin to a spouted mixing bowl or 4-cup liquid measuring cup. Pour 1/4 cup of red wine over the gelatin and allow to sit for 5 minutes until the gelatin is absorbed into the wine.
  • Heat 1 cup wine over medium heat until it just begins to simmer. Whisk the hot wine into the gelatin mixture until the gelatin is dissolved. 
  • Whisk in the remaining 3/4 cup of wine and both juices until combined. Set aside.
  • Lay out your plastic cups on a baking tray without the lids (for easy transportation). Distribute the diced apples evenly among the cups. Add 3 pieces of orange and 1/2 or a raspberry to each cup.
  • Pour the wine mixture into each cup filling just under the lip so there's room to put the lid on later.
  • Refrigerate the shots for 2-3 hours or until set. 
  • Remove shots from the fridge. Place a raspberry half on top of each shot, cut side down. Serve immediately or cover each cup with a lid and refrigerate until ready to serve.

Notes

  • If you're not feeling the fruit in the shots, they can be omitted and you'll still have a delish wine jello shot!
